Engin won't start

Asked by Oct 13, 2010 at 08:50 AM about the 1999 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1999 Taurus SE We were front ended, air bags deployed, front window broke. The car has 65,000 mile on it and we want to keep it. At crash site, the battery was disconnected. At tow yard battery was connected by serviceman who din't write down the codes and also erased them. We want to keep the car but need to know if engin will start and run okay. Can you help?

Fuel flow switch in trunk is reset.
Alarm went off ? don't know why - it is reset.

Engine turns over easily but will not start - is there another circuit stopping the engine from starting?
