Oh yeah and check the power wires and the ground. Check the alternator pigtail to see if it's getting pulled out. Sounds like she knocked something loose. Also if she hit something hard enough it could have triggered the fuel pump cut off. If you look in the passenger side wheel well you can see the reset switch. I would have tried that first before undoing the battery terminals. Though I don't see how it would effect it after that was done. Ether way check all the terminals and grounds. Anytime my gauges dropped off or reset while driving it was the power cables or lack of contact from them.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
