You have what is called an inertia switch that trips when the car is in an accident or any type of hard impact. It shuts of power to the fuel pump to prevent a fire or explosion. Inspect the vehicle very carefully for gas leaks. The inertia switch is in the psssenger side floor near the heater, it may be behind the kick panel neat to the fuse box. Some v.W.'S have a little access door in the panel. The switch is about 2 inches tall and will have a red reset button on top. You just push the red button down to reset it. Then check for gas leaks before starting.
