Its possible you cooked the pump. The pump needs liquid gasoline to keep it cool and lubed. There's also a chance the pump is damaged from debris from the bottom of the tank. If you have fuel in the tank, you would jumper the pump relay to find out if the pump is running and what is coming out of the filter under the car.
The problem needs to be properly diagnosed, but the most likely cause of your problem would be a malfunctioning fuel level sensor in the fuel tank. It could also possibly be a problem with the wiring to the sensor.
Hello, The fuel pump is inside the gas tank. Remove the exhaust, Disconnect and remove all hoses and lines, also disconnect all electrical wires, remove 4 bolts from straps holding tank. Drop tank down. Remove lines and hoses from top of fuel pump module, remove lock ring, pull fuel pump module, turn unit as necessary so you don't destroy the fuel level sender. Hope this helps
I would look at the possibility of a clogged fuel filter first. Some contaminants from the bottom of the fuel tank may have clogged it up when the tank was run empty. It has been known to happen. Hope this helped and best wishes.
Without crawling inderneath our car to look, I'd say the tire hit your fuel tank and dented it or tore a hole in it. The fuel pump and fuel guagesending unit are in the fuel tank, and the pump itself sits pretty much at the bottom of the tank. If the chunk of tire put a big enough dent in the tank, it could dislodge the pump or put it in a spot where it would not pick up any fuel. I once hit a racoon that I couldn't avoid and it ripped the muffler clear off my car. Highway speeds and decent sized objects can cause some pretty serious damage to cars.
