Is there a check engine light ? I ran into this problem with other domestic brands, most common problem I found was the crank position sensor. PCM wasn't getting a signal from cps in turn not power the fuel pump. First thing I would do is check for DTC. If crank sensor shows good, you can unplug the pump and with a test light check power supply to the pump. You will either need to have some body cycle the ignition to the on position while you are checking for power or position the test light were you can get to it quickly while you cycle the ignition, reason being pump will only get power for a few seconds with out the engine running. The vehicle was in a rear end collision prior to this was it ? Some manufactures put an impact switch in the fuel circuit to shut off fuel in the event of an accident, but that was more of a Ford thing. GOOD LUCK

1995 Cadillac Seville SLS stalls out

It sounds like it may be time for a new fuel filter, try replacing the fuel filter first. The filter has a life of 30,000 miles or one year, if it has not been changed, good chance that it's the fuel filter. Take not that a dirty fuel filter will make your fuel pump run hotter and will shorten the life of the fuel pump which is the more costly repair of the two. Good luck and keep me posted, Be glad to help you get your car running 100% again.
