My Toyota quantum has hit a speed hump now doesn't start May u help

Reset the Fuel Pump Cut-off or Inertia Switch. You'll need to look in you owners manual for the location then simply push the red button down to reset it. Hitting a speed bump fairly hard can, and often does trip the switch as the switch thinks the vehicle has been in an accident so it shuts the fuel pump off for safety. Resetting it is not a problem.

I hit a speed bump my car doesn't want to start what I do

You likely hit the speed bump hard enough to trip the INERTIAL CUTOFF SWITCH, which is designed to turn your fuel pump off in the event of a collision. Usually, the Inertial Cutoff Switch is located in the trunk near the hinge on the driver side. Check your Owner's Manual for its location, and simply hit the reset button.

My fule cut off light is on and my car won't start

The inertia switch in the trunk cuts the fuel pump off in a wreck or if you hit a major bump in the road. The button should be in for the switch to be on.
When you say fuel cut off light, are you saying the low fuel light ?
That light means the gas tank is almost empty. If the tank is half full, the sending unit may be faulty.
If you know for a fact the pump is not running when you turn the key on, pull the pump relay which is in the engine compartment and check for voltage. You may need a shop manual or repair book to get the wiring diagram and test procedure.
The other solutions you see on this screen are suggested by the website and may not relate to your problem.

Won't start

check for fuel cutoff switch reset button. these are designed to shut off fuel in case of accident but they will some times be activated on blowout or even when you hit a pothole or speed bump. your local parts house can tell you its exact location, should be in rear window washer compartment or glovebox.

Stop running while doing 65mpr on freeway, first started dieing with fast left turn, got worse started dieing when i hit a bup in road, then started dieing with right or lift fast turns and bups in road,...

Check the Timing belt and the fuses. If you have installed anything that has wires that you connected into the fuse block check those to make sure one hasn't come free and shorted a fuse on the fuse block or Power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, and I know this is a long shot, check the oil level in the engine to make sure your bump is working and that the sensor is responding correctly. I had a sensor go out once and when the engine got low on oil it didn't register but when I made turns you could hear it and feel it with a lose of power.

Where is the 1996 cadillac seville fuel reset button located. Hit hard bump in road and car died and will not start.

Cadillac does not have a fuel pump reset button, I think I would look to see what got damaged on the underside of the car might have massed a wiring harness or fuel line....GOOD LUCK

Few months ago had fuel pump assembly replaced. Not the pump but the assembly. Location is behind the rear seat above the fuel tank and actually its in the tank but can be reached by removing the rear seat...

I would say that you are on the right track , I think that maybe when the work was done on the fuel pump assy the mechanic may have pinched the power wire and hitting the bumps has caused it to will have to take the seats out again (sorry).You need to look for a damaged wire or evidence of arcing .Hope this helps.
