2010 nissan versa got in a collision. Wont crank over. Would the fuel inertia switch cause this?


Fuel inertia switch stops the fuel pump running in the case of a collision causing a broken fuel pipe which otherwise could spray a litre of petrol every few seconds and rather spoil someone's day.

Certainly a tripped inertia switch would prevent the engine from starting but I doubt it would stop the engine cranking, though I don't have up to date information on the model and there could be different safety regulations where you are.
The inertia switches are accessible and resettable so why not just reset it and try again. Your vehicle handbook will have the details.

An immobiliser stops the the engine cranking on some vehicles as well as stopping the spark and injection and often the fuel pump.
Bridging the battery positive wire to the solenoid to make the starter crank the engine won't be switching the rest of the stuff back on.

Inertia switch


Inertia switch is only relevant when you have a collision and the engien does not start. Fuel pump may not run and coils no spark. If not, same thing could also happen if the immobilizer is not disabled or the key FOB gets damaged. The ignition key has an RFID chip in it and if you drop your key or remove this chip, the car will not recognize the key and wont start. You need to use your spare key from then on.

2005 JAGUAR S TYPE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START AFTER ACCIDENT DOES IT HAVE FUEL CUTOFF SWITCH AND WHERE IS IT LOCATED


You likely tripped the Fuel Shut-Off Inertia Switch.
The inertia switch is located behind the trim on the right-hand
side of the vehicle, forward of the front door post, below the
fascia. Pull open the small panel in the trim to reset the switch.
Resetting the switch
CAUTION !!!:
To avoid the possibility of fire or personal injury, do not
reset the inertia switch if you see or smell fuel.
If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the inertia switch as follows:
Press the button!
If the switch was activated by the accident, you should feel it "click" when you reset it by pushing it.

Happy Motoring!

Cranks but wont start


This problem can be from the Inertia sensor. On Lincolns, the Inertia switch is usually close to the Air-ride cut-off switch in the trunk. Or behind a front floor kick panel.

There is a reset button on the switch. Check photos on the Web if you want to see what you are looking for.

It got wrecked and i fix it but it wont start


Did you check for an inertia switch. Most vehicles have an inertia switch installed in the fuel pump circuit that cuts off the fuel pump when involved in an accident.

My fiat ulysee wont start


Check to see if your vehicle has an fuel inertia switch. During any impact on a vehicle, the inertia switch shuts the fuel system down until the switch is reset. But if it is damaged, you should replace it

2003 ford f250 superduty xl wont start


This could be the Inertia switch is active. There is a reset button on it. Usually this is placed by the front floor kickpad. Since you have access to the internet, type in your vehicle and the word "inertia switch" and you might find a video about resetting your part. Also it will show you some autoparts photos of this part.

I have a 2004 freestar that wont start.changed fuel pump still wont start.pump wont run!


Hello, If you have not checked your Inertia switch it shuts off the fuelpump and may need to be Reset. It should be in the RH side of the jack compartment. You just push and hold a button on the switch and then the fuelpump should work.

The Inertia switch is a safety device and can trigger when a door or hatch is closed hard enough to simulate a crash. You also can have a Relay in the Powerbox which may be labeled. Try the Inertia switch first and if it does not help, then change the Fuelpump Relay.
