I also have a 2000 suburban, do you have a copy or info on the recall? My truck has not seen a dealer in over 4 years, maybe I should inform them of the recall so I can get my fuel pump replaced. I do have a fuel guage problem once in a great while, where it goes to E and then back up to normal again.
Have you checked for trouble codes on yours? A new battery should have plenty of power to crank the engine and run fuel pump too. Maybe a bad battery cable or connection to ground? Just guessing.
