Uh oh, maybe you need to carry around a good luck charm for a little while until this one blows over.

Just as bad as you think it is for yourself, there is always someone else who has it much worse. Chin up and take it in stride...it will get better!

Test the voltage threw the relay with KOEO, should be battery voltage. Test voltage in and out. If none, check fuse, if you have voltage in and not our, replace relay, if you have voltage in and out, test voltage at the fuel pump. Do you have a inertia switch? These can trip on a big bump.

Did you check the fuse? That'* the first and easiest thing to check.
