Could be 2 things. One would be the inertia switch. And the other would be the factory alarm system. Does the "SECURITY" or "THEFT" light flash when the key is turned on?
For the inertia switch, you will need to locate the switch and press the button on top of it to reset it. Good luck, hope this is helpfull.

Fuel safety switch location or other reasons it won't start after crash.

Generally speaking, only Ford products have a safety switch or inertia switch for the fuel system. This includes some Mazda models.
I would start with the basics and check for power to the coil and the fuel pump relay.

Kill Switch in 05 Pacifica

Yes! It should be located near the fuel pump by the gas tank, could be located near the wiring going into the transmission, or it might be behind the upholstery in the very back.

Where is the emergency fuel shut switch located

It is impossible for me to tell you where the Inertia Switch is with certainty, as you have not included the year, & model of Ford you have. That said, most Ford models have the Inertia Switch [which controls power to the fuel pump] behind the kick panel on the passenger side. The kick panel is the plastic panel just above the outer edge of the carpet, directly in front of the front inner edge of the passenger side, front door.
