Having the fuel pump just replaced that morning doesn't mean that isn't the problem. Check it! The fuel pump relay is a good place to start though. The relay, and a few others, are in a box under the hood. Can't remember exactly where, but shouldn't be hard to locate. Try one of the other identical relays in the box (swap them) and see what you can find out.You need to answer a couple of questions. Is the fuel pump getting power/activating/working? Is the fuel pump getting fuel? The answers and the specifics around the answers lead to some other troubleshooting to try.

Sounds good ninemil, I would also check for any bent or disconnected fuel lines that would restrict the fuel flow as well. I do not know if this has a fuel pump assembly but you should be able to hear it actuate on when the key is in the "on" position. How did it act before you shut it off? Was it harder to start? Make sure you buy a high quality pump (Carter) many of those cheaper brands will fail trust me.

Testimonial: "It actually had no spark or fuel . It was the computer. Thanks for answering"
You have a bad "clockspring" inside the steering wheel. A bit complex to write it all out and if I forget anything the bag could deploy in your face while changing it out. You can find detailed instructions for that job in both chilton or haynes manuals.

Tips for a great answer:
If the test lamp illuminates, refer to the Horn Test.
Ignition OFF, disconnect the inline harness connector C275. Ignition ON, test for B+ between the horn relay control circuit terminal B and ground.
If less than B+, test the control circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the underhood fuse block.
Momentarily connect a 3-A fused jumper wire between the control circuit terminal B and ground. The horns should work.
If the horns do not work, replace the underhood fuse block.
If all circuits test normal, test or replace the horn switch
The PCB relay horn system consists of the following components:
Horn PCB relay
Body control module (BCM)
