Default Died while driving, battery light came on now wonít start

My car died while shifting into second gear, the battery light came on and now it will not start. It cranks over but wonít start. Checked the relays, checked fuel pumps, primed my injectors to be sure it was getting fuel before trying to start. Iíve checked everything that I know about. Does anyone have any suggestions about what the problem could be or what part would cause this

Open up your fuel filter housing and check for metal particles first

If you have a low rail pressure code, its likely the in tank pump.
