I would get a fuel pressure tester , that model may need a specific fuel pressure to run , just having it won't do , or test for spark , fuel+spark+compression=vroom other things can fail by pure coincidence

When main power is lost the antithieft system activated, every make is different so run the shut down procedure listed in the owners manual to make sure you got it right. I have heard that on rare occasions that a rig might need a re-flash of the computer system to bring things back online, this can only be done at a dealer. But again I say this is very rare for your year make and model.
