heres what happened..i was going to go get some food today with my girlfriend..so when i went to go pick her up..i just sat in the car waiting for like 5 minutes..then out of know where..i feel my car start to slowly die..almost like if you would release your clutch while it was in 1st gear..then i tried to start it up again and NOTHING happened..it would keep making the sound it normally does when you would start up a car but it wouldnt start..i thought it was the battery at first but it wasnt since my music was still on when my car died..any ideas?..i called up my dad and some friends..and they think it might be the fuel pump..so im not too sure..anyone else had this problem before?..

Fuel pump sounds like a good guess. You can check your fuel pump like so (the special service tool is a wire to jumper the terminals on the diagnostics block):
