Check your fuses in the fuse block. But, It is possible that during the jacking process you have knocked off the wiring harness to the fuel pump. If the fuel gauge does not work either, that is probably it. The harness often runs close to and above/ in back of the rear tire.


Also, if the oil sending unit is bad or disconnected it can prevent the fuel pump from getting power. A safety feature in case of a crash stops the fuel pump when oil pressure drops.
