If IIRC.....The fuel pump relay is built into a module in the right front fender. I've seen those go belly-up from cracked solder joints.
There's also a Inertia Trip switch in-line on the fuel pump power circuit, I've also seen those go bad & trip over the slightest bump in the road.

See if it's a fuel pressure issue first by using a alternative fuel source....Then check if the pump actually has power which is easily done at the Inertia Switch.

One side should have B+ while cranking & the other should have a Ground return from the pump motor (Through the windings).....If that shows good, Short the to pins/circuits together to bypass the Inertia Switch.

People tend to freak out when a car dies & run the battery dead trying to get in running again, Like it's going to magically fix itself.......

Yup. Crank it a few times to see what it does or doesn't do, then save the battery.

Sad that I am 8 hours away . I told him gone ahead and call the town truck . And ask him to take to a shop that he know well . And bite the bill . I told him I will send him $200 on top of what ever bill he have to pay. Kinda help him out .

One thing Ive learned since getting a Mustang - when the low fuel light comes on, you get gas NOW. With a 15 gallon tank and not the most fuel efficient engine, you can't get terribly far at that point. The first time I ran mine down, I ended up running out of gas in the gas station parking lot.

I thought your horse died. Whew! smirk There are a lot of things that can cause the engine stalling. It's got to do with interrupting air or fuel flow or missing spark. Could be anything from a failed fuel pump/clogged fuel filter, bad MAF/MAP sensor, ECU problem, bad ground, bad crank or cam position sensor or even a bad ignition switch.

Mechanics love it when people need a repair, and then burn up their starter and ruin the battery cranking on it hoping something will change. On a fuel injected car, the odds of it starting after a few more seconds of cranking are very small. Modern gear reduction permanent magnet starters do not have a lot of thermal capacity, and are pretty easy to burn up too. I have seen armatures turn blue from the heat. Spend 250 or more just to get it to crank and then find out what is wrong.
