Assuming the problem is not really a fuel pump failure, a fuel pump relay problem or a fuse, usually you need to add a few gallons of fuel and then cycle the key on and off 10 times over about 2 minute period.

However, not 100% sure if this will prime the pump in these cars as I recall that opening the drivers door will prime the fuel pump.

You can also try spray starting fluid to get the engine running for short periods which may get the fuel pump to get all the air out of the fuel line.

But keep in mind, you may have a different problem that the vehicle being out of fuel!
