Did you have a "check engine" warning displayed on your dash or any other warnings displaying previously or now?

Possibly the FUEL PUMP has failed. I would first check:
1. the fuse(15 amp) for the Fuel Pump; and
2. the Fuel Pump relay

Both are located in the engine compartment fuse/relay box on the driver's side.

It maybe a loose connection (pin connector) on your DFI module, try taking it out then putting it back in again. If your ute still does start it could either be your DFI module is rooted. The other option is the Crank Angle Sensor is gone?

Good luck with it...

Cheers

Try Crank Angle Sensor too , although normally it would trigger a fault code & put the engine warning light on , but has been known to not!!!
