Following any significant front end collision several things happen tp prevent starting the vehicle. The most common is the fuel shut off. This can be reset by locating the reset button (usualyy located against the firewall on the inside of the vehicle. Your owners manual provides the exact location. 10 to 1 that's the problem.

Hi! The car may be on limp mode, specially when the airbags deployed or right after an accident. Try to do this, turn the ignition on but dont crank it, let it sit on ON position for 11mins. Turn off the car and pull out the keys. Insert the key again and wait for atleast 11secs. before turning on the car, this should reset the system and get the fuel pump working. Try it and see how it goes. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Try charging the battery, power may not be enough to crank the car. Battery replacement will be a good idea.

My 1999 jeep grand cherokee has an air bag light on


The sensor is out and you will have to replace it. It is expensive. Or you just will not have an air bag deploy if you have a front end accident. Personally the light on the dash does not bother me for the 300 dollars it was going to cost to replace all the stuff needed to make air bag in the stering wheel work. Hope that helpes

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L 6L Auto Trans. Turns over but wont start No spark on plugs, good compression. Just put new ignition coil, rotor cap plugs plug wires. but, checked power supply to coil...


Check for a signal at the ignition coil with a node light or a 12 volt led test light while cranking. Check for a signal at a fuel injector connector jack while cranking. If both these signals are missing. Ignition and fuel signals, then the problem may be some common point. My 've will loose both these signals if there is no crank shaft signal or position sensor. CPS is on rear of engine, on transmission bell housing. Check for connections of PCS.

Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.

1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO- TRUCK WONT


OK...I have a 93 outside...one diagram I have shows an ignition module next to coil...but there is none on mine, (4.0 engine)
Two items to check are crank sensor and cam sensor inside distributor. Test procedure can be found in just about any manual including haynes.
You will need a decent volt/ohm meter to do testing. You can also check codes by turning ignition switch on/off three times, leaving it on the third time. Check engine will flash code #'s (ex: one flash, pause two flashes= the number twelve.then followed by a longer pause then another set of flashes etc.)

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer
