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 ;)

    I'm going with the kill switch. Shuts off fuel and spark to reduce the chance of fire after an accident. Lucky the air bag did not deploy.

    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. :confused:

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

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