2006 Kia Spectra Won't Start

My son went over a some railroad tracks (very bumpy) and the car stalled and now won't start. The engine turns but it sounds like it is not getting any fuel. Is there a fuel reset switch or something of the sort that could have been triggered when going over the tracks?

I agree, i had an accident that caused 2 flat tires after hitting debris in the road, and a kill switch engaged., but debris hit the undercarraige of the car to engage it. Are you sure your son was'nt jumping some railroad tracks. Its a fun, fast little car. i love it.You might call yourl local kia dealer to ask about it. But I suspect you should have someone look at tbe undercarraige of the car.

Check for a fuel shutoff switch, they are made to go off in accidents and shut off your fuel and needs the button pushed to reset

Why won't my car start?

Check what the battery reads while starter is running.Or you can turn on the headlights and try to start it to see if the headlights dim or go out.
If so then the battery is too weak or has bad connections at battery or at the engine ground or starter solenoid.

I have a 1992 jeep wrangler. i drove over railroad tracks and it just died. it turns over but will not start. the check engine light comes on and stays on. that just started since the tracks. do you...

These jeeps have a safety fuel shut off in case of an accident. And a hard jarring can shut off. it should tell you where the switch is in your owners manual, All you have to do is press the reset button on it

95 ford Ranger Splash 3.0L I was driving the

On passenger side, inside of cab there is a fuel inertia switch mounted on the firewall by where feet go. There is a button underneath, push it. This will reset switch. Truck should get fuel now and start. These switches get weak and if passenger kicks it truck will shut down. Will still turn over but not start.

I went over railroad tracks and my low beams went out.

From the description it would appear the filaments in both headlamp bulbs have blown/fused so inspection/replacement imminent.
Good luck!
