I'm new on here so 1st thank you for adding me

Can someone please help

I have a cirsa f 2021 1.2 sri premium
Unfortunately I was hit in the rear quite heavily which resulted in the boot pushing in.

The question I am seeing assistance on is.

Since then. The cars been parked up. Yesterday I tried starting the car but the battery was dead

I charged to battery for 18 hours so it's full. Put the battery back. Now it turns but will not fire up start
I was told that as it was hit there is a fuel cut off to reset. But I cannot locate it. I gave checked the fuel pump fuse that seems fine.

Can any one of you brainiacs assist as pulling what little hair I have left out.

Thank you in advance.

Matter resolved.

So on a situation where the battery drains. In order to resolve the non start when jump leads allow car to turn but not fire up. The resolve is to fully charge the battery. Re connect battery then leave for 30 to 60 mins don't attempt start. After the wait period. The car should start as normall. Then take for 20 min drive to fully top up battery charge yo max
