You could have possibly damaged the wires or at worst the fuel pump itself jack the car up put stands under and do further investigation to the side of fuel tank there is a pump with wires also the fuel lines could be squashed or damaged its hard for me to say exactly whats wrong without seeing it myself have a look underneath and i will help as much as i can glenn...........

I tried to post this once,so here goes the 2nd time,there is an emergency shut-off switch on the fuel-somtimes located in the rear and if you hit a big pot-hole it will shut down-that could be your problem-call the dealership-ask for the service dept and ask them if your car has the switch-if so where? Or it may be electrical-check to see if you have a loose cable or wire by your fuel tank

My 1998 Toyota Camry hit a large rock in the road & the engine cut out immediately. Some body damage was done under the car, including some minor denting of the fuel tank. The fuel pump is OK, but...

The emergency fuel pump cut off switch reset is usually in the trunk but if you have the owner's manual you will find info in it. You can also call a dealer and ask where the reset is or try going to and do a search.

I hit a rock in the road banged up the gas tank alittle and the foor now it shut off and wont start but cranks over

Not sure what car you have, but some cars have an inertia switch that shuts off the fuel pump in an accident. Check you manual to see if your car has one and where it is so you can reset the switch.

My 1994 Mazda b3000 p/u died on me while i was driving. Has gas, new filter, and does crank but wont start. Need help

Does the electric fuel pump come on when you turn the key? It should make a buzzing noise for 3 seconds or so.

What does the fuel cutoff light indicate in a 91 Ford Escort?

the fuel shut off switch is in the trunk I believe. It comes on when the car is hit and the switch opens up to shut down the fuel pump to prevent a fire from leaking fuel if the tank is ruptured or the line is nroken. You just rest the cot offswtich by pressing the button. Your owner manual explains very well.
