I have a 95 Subaru legacy lsi I hit the gas tank coming off a high curb and the car shut off and won't start back up. I changed the fuel pump fuel relay and sending unit. Why won't the car start?

There is an "inertia" switch that shuts off power to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Banging off the curb might have been a strong anough impact to trigger this switch. It will be in the trunk area, probably behind one of the removeable panels by the fenders or maybe the panel in the trunk by the back seat. Or, ask your dealer where the "inertia" switch is located for your car. Depress the pin that is sticking out of that switch, & your car will start again. Sorry you bought unnecessary parts.
