Question Help! All Relays Clicking

I turn the key and It cranks but doesn't start. Leaving key in run mode u hear the fuel pump pumping then starts clicking. Then under the hood you hear all the relays in the power distib. clicking on and off. Also hear other relays under the hood going off like crazy. Please Help with any ideas.

Yes, it sounds like your fuel pump has gone bad. The relays clicking afterwards are the fuel pump relays trying to reset and start the pump back up after the fault.

get a fuel pressure tester, hook it up to see if there is pressure if so what it is it should be 45 lbs. if there is no pressure check for power at tank. if you have power like mad dog sed its pump. then all you need is a case of beer,two buddies and some wrenches. take the bed off and have the time of your lifes.
