for the xtype on passenger side
In the event of an accident, an inertia switch will trip, isolating
fuel pump operation. Once the switch has tripped it must be
reset before attempting to restart the engine.
The inertia switch is located behind the trim on the right-hand
side of the vehicle, forward of the front door post, below the
fascia. Pull open the small panel in the trim to reset the switch.
Resetting the switch
To avoid the possibility of fire or personal injury, do not
reset the inertia switch if you see or smell fuel.
If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the inertia switch as follows:
1. Turn the ignition switch to position 0.
2. Pull open the small panel in the trim.
3. Press down the flexible cover on the top of the inertia switch.
4. Turn the ignition switch to position II, pause for a few
seconds, then return the key to position 0.
5. Make a further check for fuel leaks.
6. Close the trim panel.

In the owners manual it mentions a fuel shut off located next the the front passengers seat on the trim. There is a reset button that you can turn the fuel back on after an accident. You have to turn the key to acc for it to work, but in the event of impact it triggers the shut off so that no fuel spills. The impact of you hitting the pot hole may have been enough for that switch to trigger, in which case the car would not start. Check that first, and i hope it helps you.
