    The son of a coworker of mine spun out the other night and hit a guard rail at highway speed. Now the truck won't start. Is there a fail safe on the Tacos that maybe cuts off the fuel pump or relay after an accident. Truck is an '04 4x4 V6. Thanks.

    Is it possible there's a broken post on the battery from the jolt?

    That is what I was thinking as well. Could have jarred the battery around a bit and broke/loosened a connection somewhere in there.
