Fuel Valve Problem on 79 240D?

Today I went out and started my 240D, it was a little hard to start, but it cranked. I drove it a few miles and when I turned the key off it actually shut off - it has not been doing this for a couple of months. When I got back in it wouldn't start. Seems like it's not getting fuel. I pulled one of the return lines off and cranked it and no fuel came out. Also noticed that the trunk will now open without the key - wouldn't before. I just ordered a Mighty Vac to figure it all out, but this seems like a failure of the fuel valve or something in the ignition switch? Any ideas, is there a easy way to check the fuel valve?
