Question about 2004 Kia Optima
The fuel pump cut-off switch is located under the passenger side of the hood, over the wheel well. Should be right at the top, directly under the hood. It is around black rubber pressure switch connected to a wiring harness. Press it, and you will feel a click if it reset. If not, then it did not trip. It is basically a circuit breaker for your fuel pump.

This could be multiple issues.
1.) timing belt
2.) Crank sensor
3.) Fuel pump (although usually they do not just die they get weak)
Check these let me know.

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

The fuel line is connected to fuel injector Rail by 2 nuts (10mm) (from your right) next to air hose to air filter. Disconnect fuel line and start engine to see whether gas shoots out of the line. If not, fuel pump is broken. Engine turns over but not start , it could be iginition lost (no sparks ). or timing belt got rip broken.
Go to auto Zones (auto part store) borrown ODB II scanner loaner and take it home, hook to ODBII connector that's located at the driver side to your right. Read the codes given by the scanner and go from there.
If a timing belt is broken, open timing belt cover to check on the belt.
If your belt is broken and crushed apiece, you may have to rebuild the whole engine as it's an interference belt.
