after a bump?? there is an inertia switch for the fuel pump that can trip and shut off the fuel pump. it is on the right kick panel on the passenger side. it is behind the cover and the button should be down. if you push it down and it clicks, then it was tripped.
by the way, there are many more than 4 sensors in your truck. if the switch is ok. you need help from a shop.
