Default Fuel Pump Reset After Front End Crash????

Guys, i need help here and as soon as possible. My wife had a crash tonite in her 2003 Rio and now i cannot get anything from the fuel pump. I checked the relay in the engine compartment and it checks ok. I know many vehicles have a reset button. Can anyone help me to determine the cause of this issue or a detailed explanation of where the reset button may be. Thanks in advance for the help. I gotta get this car out of the tow yard quick.

Last I checked, there wasn't a fuel pump reset button. You should get a test light and start checking fuses, maybe check the battery cables. Do any of the lights come on when the ignition is turned on?
