1996 Grand Prix won't start after being rear ended.

Prix 2 Dr SE Coupe

I have a 1996 Grand Prix and a girl rear ended me today.  There wasn't any
damage to either car,  but now my car won't start.  I turn the key and the
come on but nothing else happens.  Is there a kill switch or something I
to reset?

I've been looking ever where for the switch I look under the drivers dash in
the trunk and in the glove box but I can't see any switch. And as for the
sensor in the bumper what would I do with it. I'm not mechanically inclined
and not much in the way of money. Unfortunately I'm an unemployed Vet so
money is an issue also. Thank you for any help I do appreciate it!

Car won't even turn over starter is fine. I can hear the fuel pump whine when you turn on the key.


Hope you got her number. Sounds like there is damage to your car after all. So the good news is it shouldn't cost you a cent. Everything including towing should be covered by her insurance. Keep your receipts if you've already spent money on it.

Of course I did. I was just trying to fix it myself but I guess that's not going to happen. I am having it taken in tomorrow she is paying for everything or her insurance is, doesn't matter as long as I'm not.
