Default 2001 Mustang GT Fuel Pump Switch

I have a 2001 Ford Mustang V8 5 speed manual and it is not starting. I live in Minnesota and park it during the winter. This winter I took the battery out; come Spring I re-installed the battery and charged it. When I insert the key and try starting it, the engine does not turn over.

A couple of people say it is the fuel pump since it sounds like the engine is not receiving any gas. One of my friends who owns a Mustang told me about the fuel pump switch in the trunk. I found the switch and the red button is not "popped out" so when I try pushing it nothing happens. Another guy said something about if the THEFT indicator flashes rapidly when I try to start the engine.

I am looking for some help on what might be the problem for why my car is not starting. The car ran great before I parked it before the winter; the car is covered and parked in my garage the entire winter. Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks in advance!

When you turn the key to the "run" positon, do you hear a whine that stops after 2-3 seconds? If so, the fuel pump may be running. I would see if you have pressure on the fuel rails.
