Default Fuel pump not getting power

Hello fellas, Ive had my 2003 audi a4 1.8t Q for about 7 months and this is my first mechanical problem in which i desperately need help with. so here it goes....

Driving home at about midnight on a Friday on Very low fuel.While i was coasting in neutral my car abruptly turned off. /my whole cluster went out and so did power steering, so i pulled off the road.i tried to crank it but it did not turn on.I assumed my car turned off due to the low fuel, so i walked to the gas station and came back with a gallon.After i dumped the gallon in i tried to turn on my car ...cranked it a few times but it just wouldnt start.i wasnt sure what it could be so i started googling similar symptoms.....So i finally tried to "prime" my fuel pump my turning the ignition on and off in intervals of 10/15 secons for about 15-20 min and it worked!my car turned on and i got home that night.

The following day on a saturday at 11 am i got in my car and it turned of normal.i drove it for an hour or so and it ran fine.about 8-9 hours later at 9pm i attempted to turn my car on again, and this time it just wouldnt start again even after trying to "prime" my fuel pump again.

since then i replaced fuel pump,fuel filter,and fuel relay , none which have gotten my car to start again. My fuel pump still is not getting power, nor is there any fuel pressure.I took a spark plug cable out and checked for spark....no spark either.I am now assuming the problem is the crank sensor(CKS) based on other threads i have read.I appreciate any input or ideas.And if you're from the Los Angeles county with have a vag-com available to lend a hand so i can pin point what is the problem.....thanks in advance.

Gasoline liquid level is too low, can not achieve cooling effect, and will reduce the service life, lead the car to no start. maybe you should ask the repair shop for help.
