There is no shut off like the Fords for the fuel pump. Do you know if you have spark and fuel? Did you check all fuses?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is spark, fuel tank full prior to impact. Following impact fuel gauge shows empty and no start. Only thing for fuel pump (in fuse box ) is a marked relay. Is fuel gauge and pump on same circuit?
