Have you looked at your connections? Make sure everything is not corroded and there is plenty of copper wires in the connectors themselves. I ran into the exact same issue and it was because my battery couldn't ground right.

Do you think the fuel pump may have quit. You hear it clicking and still have electricity running through it. Hopefully it's that and not a seized up motor.
