I have a probleem like this after my car sits after I drive for a while. My car doesn't turn over and I am assuming I need a fuel pump or a crank sensor. is this a cold start for you?

Crank sensor will throw a code....

As for the pump, the way to check is to listen for a 2 second humming noise from the undside of the rear seats (ie gas tank) when you first energize the car, you can also check the valve on the top of the fuel rail for pressure in the lines.
