Hit a pole doin apprx. 15 mph and stalled out and wont start?
96' honda civic dx 1.6L , driving out of the trailer park, came around a corner, wasnt paying attention, and hit a concrete pole doing apprx. 15 mph setting off the passenger airbag. The car instantly stalled out and wouldnt shift from park unless I used the shift lock key slot located next the the shifter. it peeled the passenger side fender back up to the tire but missed the hood so easy fix if i can get the thing started. There is a fuel injector relay located behind the glovebox all the way to right, but i really dont want to spend almost $ 70.00 if i dont know if thats whats wrong, and i live in the sticks so i have no way to get it scanned. any suggestions?...........Help me Obi-wan Kenobi......You're my only hope..

It sounds like your car needs a good solid tune up. It sounds like the injectors are fighting to get fuel so the slower you go the chances of you stalling is even greater. And the faster you go the fuel system is just getting just enough fuel that the car needs to keep running.....I hate to say this but it sounds like you need a tune up.
Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.
what i find common is the parking brake handle slides up over time covering the release button and not allowing the park brake to go down. can you push the button with your fingertip while pulling up on the handle and release the park brake? if so you can tap the handle to the rear with out hitting the button. protect the button with a socket or use a block of wood next to the button. don't hit the button.
