98 wrangler accident
 
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum just bought my first jeep about a month ago and now I have had a bit of bad luck. I have a 98 wrangler and this evening someone slid into my drivers side rear tire and now my jeep will not start. I have searched the internet and I haven't really found a good answer about there being an emergency fuel shut off. I want to know if there is or isn't one on my jeep if there isn't does anyone have any ideas? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
Mike

Check the ASD relay in the power distribution center which is on the pass. fender under the hood.

Thanks for the quick reply. I took your advice and swapped the asd relay with the horn to troubleshoot and still will not turn over. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I have nothing to add other than nice username :thumb:

I would think that even if fuel shutoff happened it would have turned over for a short period before stalling.

It could shut off fuel while running then killed itself I guess

Guess I will just have to have my mechanic check it out tomorrow and see what he says. Thanks again guys!

I will keep posted on what I find out too.

I may be a bit off here, but following the air spark fuel theory, quick shot of starting fluid in the intake to ensure air and spark?

It sounds like a fuel thing going on, maybe the tank moved a bit and the wires to the fuel pump are off?

This guy had same issue...broke the fuel pump. I have read another thread on here somewhere a guy hit from the rear...same deal broken fuel pump. Good luck.

You can add me to that list as well. Fuel pump snapped in half inside fuel tank.

Now I just have to wait patiently until it is fixed along with my newly bent axle.
