This of course could have bent the fuel pump bracket inside the tank or damaged the wiring that supplies it power, stand by your guns, if it worked before the accident then it is accident related, I have had this kind of argument with a few insurance companies, and they always say no until u really pour it on, ask to speak to a supervisor, forget the little claims agent go over his head, it works, just be persistant..

My 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 had its timing chain break at the time of an accident?


You're going to have to get a second opinion by someone in person.
There is nothing you can do online.
If the collision managed to jam something into the front of the timing cover or lock up the crankshaft, I guess its possible.
But highly unlikely.

Whats the purpose of fuel shut off 94 mazda progete


The emergency fuel shut off switch is present to prevent gas fires in the event of an accident. It is an impact switch and disengages power to the pump after an accident. There has been situations where an accident caused fuel lines to break, the key was still supplying power to the pump, and a car fire resulted. This switch prevents such fires. Thanks and please rate.

Fuel pump is located inside your fuel tank.Sometimes if you have involved in an accident there is automatic shut off switch that will kill the fuel pump operations and prevent fire durring accident.Chek your manual for fuel pump shut off switch. Sometimes is located in the Trunk or in front of vehicle on driver side under dash on left side panel.

What speed would make my airbags deploy in a 1999 camry


In the U.S. it is around 14 mph if you strike a fixed barrier and around 28 mph if you strike a parked car or similar object with a full frontal blow. Other types of accidents which are at an angle or not full frontal is determined by that particular manufacture and the year the car was made. The ECU will determine when to deploy the system in different types of scenarios.

think you have knocked out the safety switch and it needs resetting to start vehicle,Dont know where this is on this vehicle though but it could be in the boot or under the bonnet but some vehicles have them behind the centre pillar cover or in the front footwell,it should be a smallish square thing with a red rubber cover ,just push the rubber cover down and it should click back on

Accident + car fuses?


This could be caused by what is called a "fuseable link" it is a piece of wire that is designed to carry only so much amperage (current) sometimes when you have an accident and you have electrical shorts caused by the accident the fuseable link will break because of the electrical short. Some cars have fuseable links going to the starter solinoid and if these short out the car will not start. On the focus the fuel cut off switch is located on the passenger kick panel under the dash. The ones I have seen have a red button and you have to press down on them to reset them.
