Hello! I don't see a connection between the headlight issue and not starting...However I definitely see a connection with the accident and not starting...When you say "not starting" do you mean the starter doesn't crank the engine or it does crank the engine but won't start? Do you have a meter and a wee bit of experience using one? If you do we can isolate this fault together...Send a comment...Guru...Saailer
THERE IS A FUEL PUMP DISENGAGE IN THE FRONT END THAT WILL DISABLE THE FUEL PUMP IN FRONT END ACCIDENTS, THIS PREVENTS THE FLOW OF GASOLINE , CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUAL TO FIND THE LOCATION, ALSO COULD BE A BUTTON IN THE REAR QUARTER PANELS INSIDE THE CAB
I had the same problem . on my 2002 silverado it turned to be the fuel pump failed because the fuel filter was clogged. I did the work myself could saved myself 219.00 and labor if I replaced a 7.00 $ Filter .
Have you checked the "Bump Switch" this is a small inertia switch which turns offf the fuel pump to prevent it running in the event of an accident. They are usually mounted in the boot(trunk/load area) . There should also be one mounted under the front of the vehicle to initiate the Airbags. They usually cut the earh return(at least it does on my Granada, XR3i and Sierra XR4x4) hope this helps.
Very simple, Ford's use inertia switches. They shut the fuel off when you are in an accident. Just call ford and ask for the location of the inertia switch on your vehicle. You just push it in to reset it.
The most common problem I see with this complaint is a bent rim or rims. So regardless if you balance the tires and rotate them, you will still have a vibration. I assume you have more than one bent rim because it still shakes even after rotation. You will have far more vibration if a bent rim is on the front. That is why people usually rotate a bent rim to the back.
