    in the event of an accident, a safety feature removes power to the fuel pump. there may be a fuel pump reset switch in the trunk. although, in some vehicles it may be in a different location. if you have an owners manual, the location should be in there.

Does it do anything? Tick, crank, grind, click? If not, check the battery, It could have moved forward enough to pull a wire loose. I can't think of anything else that would do it. Unless the fuel pump is shut off for some reason, Some cars shut it off in a crash so it doesn't spew gas all over the place. Check it out.

Why would it burst a pipe after getting new water pump fitted?

water pipes burst from 2 reasons
one is that they are too old and have cracked the binding inside the rubber
two is excessive pressure from a head gasket/cracked head problem
if the hoses are larger than the clamp, they will burst
if they have been removed incorrectly the fabric in the rubber gets torn and they will burst
if the pump was fitted incorrectly , then high pressure from overheating will make them burst

I cant find my fuse for the license plate lamps. I was in an accident and one of them got smashed and the other is not lighting either. Im thinking its a fuse problem but there is no fuse dedicated to the...

most cars run licence plate lamps on the same fuse as the tail lights.
if your tail lights work, then it is more likely to be a fault on the bulbs or bulb holders, or the wiring in that area, probably caused by the crash.

i would recheck this area first, using new bulbs to rule these out.

I have a BMW 318i 1999 model. am having a problem with water licking. at first the water tank had a crack and i replaced with a new one. after i traveled for some 100 Km the Pipe from the water tank and...

Hi. Normally if the pipes or hoses are too old, it's normal to get burst especially if your car is lack of Service Maintenance. Another thing is if the engine is overheating and the expansion tank cap is faulty (stuck Close), the weakest parts of cooling system will burst.
When you replaced the damage parts I suggest you to replace Thermostat Valves as will. Also I would suggest after the repair to do Cooling System Pressure Test encloding Expansion Tank Cap pressure test, Bleed cooling system properly, Monitor Coolingling Fan and Engine Temperature Operation.
I hope this tip will help you to solve your problem and if it's still existing I hope you don't mind to inform me and I'll try my best to help you as much as I can.
Thanks and good luck

Front bumper cover is broken, no lights along bottom.

Under the bumper cover is a fiberglass bumper. It could be broken or your bumper mounts could be bent on that side. It is best to remove the screws (on the side of the wheel well) and 10mm bolts holding the bumper cover, and locate the two frontal bolts in each bracket. There are also some plastic push pin nuts in various spots too. Don't try to get the push pins under the headlights, they will come with when the bumper is removed.
