Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, thanks for posting
During the collision did the airbags deploy? Toyota doesn't use a reset switch, the fuel pump shuts off when the airbags deploy.
I don't really know of a way to by pass, what you can try is disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if it will reset. How bad was the damage to the front, were any electrical parst like the fuse box etc impacted?
Be sure to check fuses, there may a chance that some fuses blew during the impact>
Ok, try disconnecting the airbags frtom the harness, remove the negative battery cable for a few minutes and see if the fuel pump circuit resets.
Toyota recommends that the airbag ecu and the front impact sensors be replaced whenever the air bags are deployed, , the shoulder belts have to be replaced once deployed, they will lock in place
