SOURCE: Fuel pump relay

GM relays don't reset. My guess would be the electric fuel is not operating, For openers , I would start with the FUSE for the fuel pump. In a fuse panel UNDER THE HOOD. Should be marked. Probably a 30-40A maxi fuse. CHECK WITH A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT. If that area passes all the tests, I would check for power to the fuel pump ( with the ign key on. 12 volt test light will go ON then OFF ) Could be a faulty fuel pump, Hope this helps

2004 Chevy Aveo in Minor fender bender now won't start where is fuel shut off reset

Technically, you don't have one.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If only a fuel issue, check voltage and ground at the fuel pump, note the wire colors, also, check the fuel pump relay.

Where is the fuel pump reset on a 2000 subaru forester

No such device. It sounds like you are not getting fuel. Try this:
* disconnect the battery for about 30 seconds. This will reset the ECU, which causes it to re calibrate the engine management.

Check if the ECU is throwing any sort of error code.

Your fender bender may have damaged some wiring, or the repair may have left something disconnected.

We have a 2006 Kia Spectra, the car was in a minor fender bender ( rear passenger side) and now the door locks keep clicking. The remote still locks the doors and they stay locked. If you lock them from...

The linkages or inside the door panel may have come off on the door lock. The best way to check the problem is to remove the panels and simulate the locking of the doors. You should see if there are parts that may have come off or had loosened up.
