I would check all fuse blocks to make sure there are not any blown fuses. If the engine starts and runs I would be looking at the fuel pump fuses and relays. You may want to disconnect the negative cable from the battery to reset the ECU .

I disconected the battery and still. I have a full tank of gas
I suspect you blew something out in the charging system, but it's not something I can diagnose.
Open fuse box under hood and unbolt long multi fuse and check to see if any of the links are blown. Held down by 8mm screw.

Well I'm guessing you have fixed this by now. It's definitely a fuse. Probably the driver side under dash fuse box. Just pull them one by one until you find the culprit and replace it with a fuse of the same value.

The fuses are there for a reason, it's quite unlikely you have really damaged anything.
