Welcome to the forums! From the abbreviated description, I would say the pump is picking up air rather than fuel. Is there sufficient fuel in the tank?

If it's a fuel injection system....
They make changes in startup procedure from year to year but usually the fuel pump is timed on start up. If you turned the key to run..... the pump would run for about 10 seconds and then stop. If you turned the key to crank and the vehicle cranked but did not start..... the fuel pump should still shut off 10 seconds later.

cranks for a sec than quits
That could use some clarification.

You hold the key to start and the starter cranks for a second and stops ?
Gasoline or diesel ?
