Mine, does the same thing. It started happening after the battery went dead. I believe it is an alarm / electrical problem & needs to be reset by the dealer mechanic. Goodluck
Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may start on the fuel pump. If the fuel pump is faulty it may not register on the dash. Try to loosen the bolt on the fuel rail and turn on the key but don't crank it. If there's a fuel flow then the fuel pump is fine. If there's no fuel flow then the fuel pump needs replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
