Off Roading accident

soo me and my friends went off roading in my 06 tacoma off road trd upp a mountain trail..Everything was going good but the road was a little bumpy..so anywayss i come to this big bump in the road soo like all the other bumps up the road i hit the gas and the tacoma catches a little bit of air and hits the ground hard..that time we hit really hard so i stop and everyone gets out to see if the taco is okk and it looks to be ok..but wen everyone gets in the taco and is ready to go the truck wont start up or the lights wont work. nott even a sound is made wen trying toi start it up...so we call up some friends to try to jump start it too see if that was the problem but it wouldnt start still. I mean i dont know wut happened but the tacoma wont start and the electrical shit is messed up..Anyone know wut happened or might of happened?? And if anyone knows how to fix it that be amazing =]]] i need to fix my taco =[[[

Sounds like your kill switch got tripped in the shock. That is the first place to check.

Well, kill switch gets tripped FROM the shock.

In cars I've had in the past that switch only affected the fuel pump and didn't shut down everything. That said, do these trucks even have one of those switches? I've bashed my truck pretty hard and almost rolled it a few times and never had something tripped.

It sounds more like a relay got knocked loose.

Might just be a battery problem? Try switching out the battery if you have no electronics at all. A terminal could've broke off inside- it happened to my old truck on a washboarded road.

that's where a multimeter and a wiring diagram comes in handy

Where is it located and how do you reset it?

The one's I've seen have been small plastic boxes with a button on it. The button was kind of like a circuit breaker button on a power strip. If it ever got tripped, you just press the button to reset it. I've seen them mounted under the passenger side dash or even behind plastic trim in the cargo area (both on other vehicles).

I have not seen one on my tacoma, and I can't seem to find one in the service or electrical manual.

The engine immobiliser system seems to be only for the computer chipped key and the fuel pump relay is controlled directly from the ECU.

These are usually refered to as the fuel inertia shut off switches. I would check in the FSM to see where it is located.
