ENGINE CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START

1995 Ford Aspire

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Ford Aspire 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 30000 miles

I bought a 95 ford aspire that was rolled over. Since the roll over, the inertia switch has been reset and the car has been driven. When my dad was working on the rear quarter panel, he unhooked the filler tube to the gas tank so he could grind on the metal and when he hooked it back up, the car will no longer start. There doesn't seam to be any power going to the fuel pump on top of the tank. Can an inertia switch just go bad? Should there be juice to the fuel pump when ignition is on? I am baffled beyond all hope. I have heard everything from the tank lost pressure to the inertia switch is killing the power to the fuel pump. Please let me know where to start of what is possible. Thank you

You can try disconnecting the inertia switch and jumper it -if the fuel pump comes on replace the inertia switch, if no power at the inertia switch check and test the fuel pump relay and fuse
