Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you're looking for an inertia switch such as on Ford products, but your vehicle does not use one.

I'm assuming that you don't have power at the fuel pump with the engine cranking. Lack of power at the pump could be due to a bad pump relay, blown fuse, wiring issue, or the engine controller may not be awake.

Have fuses been checked?
Do you have spark?
