They have an emergency inertia switch inside the side panel on the passenger side. Take the cover off and there is a black plastic switch with a red button on top .... pressit back in. This can be triggered by hitting a pot hole, minor fender bender and so on. Hope this helps

Check your INERTIA SWITCH, especially if you've recently had a fender-bender or if the car has otherwise been jarred. The location of the inertia switch on your vehicle should be listed in your OWNER'S MANUAL, but is likely in the driver side interior kick panel.

I have a 2002 For Taurus with Engine Code 1233 ''Fuel Pump Driver Module Disabled or Offline'' What does this mean and how do I fix it?

does the car still run? There are many causes for this code it can be pretty complicated. could even be a faulty computer. If it wont run check the fuel inertia switch. it is a switch that cuts out power to your fuel pump if you get into an accident or a fender bender. It is in your trunk on the right hand side. it is like a reset button.

97 isuzu trooper. Starter motor has no power.

Check the battery and cables going to the starter. Weak arc? Possible that the relay needs to be rechecked now. The inertia switch may also be a possibility. Has the car been in a recent fender bender?

Crank sensor

Yes your crank sensor tells your computer when to fire the injectors and the spark plugs so, if you have no crank sensor, you have no start. It could prevent your car from starting depending on the conditions when the security system was activated. Has anyone kicked the rear of your car lately? Or have you been in a fender bender? Those 2 things could trip the inertia switch in the fuel pump which could also cause your car to not start like that.
