Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Engine turns over but it does not start.
How hard was it hit? Was there extensive damage to the front? Check the crankshaft sensor at the bottom of the engine front and see if it is unplugged or broken. See if you are getting power to the inertia switch. You will have to have someone turn the key on and off because it will only power up 3-5 seconds. Check the ground wire at the battery,the one with the connection for broken/unplugged. This is the PCM ground. If you don't have power to the inertia switch,check all fuses.inside and out.

Does it just turn over and over?
Try the inercia switch... It's a fuel pump cut off switch, located on the passanger kick pannel.
You will have to pull the carpet back. It is a black box, with a red button on top. The button should be pushed in.....
