It could be this switch, but honestly, i would take this to a mechanic and have them test it before you continue playing "roulette" with parts replacement. The switch you are looking for is the fuel pump cutoff switch and is typically located in the trunk.

On my probe gt w/ 2.2l turbo (fuel injected) The switch is in the trunk on the left side right next to the washer bottle and motor for the rear window. It either has a bad connection or it's been tripped as a large impact can set it off, so you may just have to reset the switch. But if you're not sure about the switch, just pull it out and just attach the two wires with a wire twister and you're set. It's a very simple electrical mechanism. Best of luck
