No I only tried disconnecting the positive terminal for thirty seconds and then started to turn over but won’t start. The theft light comes on and the odometer has lines across. It also has a weird sound that comes on the right side of the car when you try to crank it. Although the impact was on the left side of the car.

Is there an Impact switch. It should be mounted on the passenger side A Pillar under the dash. This switch trips on an impact. There will be a hole in the pannel where there is a button. press this button in and you will hear a click. This impact switch will switch the fuel pump off on impact.

Ok so I checked the fuses in the engine compartment and all check out good, I did not see an impact switch under the passenger side of the car or the driver side of the car. I did find the rear switch and it had been completely press down and wasn’t sure what to do. After messing with it for a while I was able to find a hole where it pop back up and then like magic thanks to you guys the car starts thank you guys I appreciate it !!!!
