2010 JK won't start after an accident

I recently bought a 2010 Sahara that was in an accident (the airbags were deployed), and now it won't start. It turns over but does not act like it will even start. Any suggestions??

Many newer cars have a fuel shut off valve that acivates in a crash and has to be reset. Not sure about your Jeep, but that is my 1st guess.

Maybe a little more information like where the impact was on the vehicle would help. Where is the most damage? Did the jeep cut off by itself when the accident happened or did you turn off the key to cut it off? It would be nearly impossible to diagnose why it won't start with the information you gave us.

The Jeep has the most damage on the front passenger side, in terms of severity of the accident the airbags were deployed and the seat belts were locked, it also is in need of a new frame. I bought the Jeep wrecked so I don't know the details of the accident and if the key was turned off or not.

Hard to say. Are you using a chipped key? Does the Sentry (WKM) work? Can you check for fuel at the fuel rail at key on?

I've been trying to locate the shut off valve and can't seem to find it. I don't have an owners manual so I'm not sure where it would be.

It can literally be over 100 + reasons why it won't start from a chipped key to the canbus/computer system. You must have had a good reason, but why would you buy a wreck especially one with a bad frame. Based upon that photo you would be able to purchase a perfect 10 Sahara for what it's going to cost to properly repair this one so it's driveable and safe, if you're lucky. Do the math on the parts that you'll need if you think I'm off base.

Good parts rig to upgrade an older Jeep or maybe sell parts off of, lots of reasons to buy wrecks at real cheap prices.
OP did you try disconnecting the battery to let the computer reset?

I finally got it to start, one of the relays was bad. Thanks for everybody's help. And I'll be into this Jeep for half the price of a 2010 Sahara even with the new frame. I'm a Mac Tools dealer so I can get wholesale prices easily. Thanks again guys.
