Hello and thank you for your question,

Your 1999 has 8 coils, one on each cylinder and its not likely all have failed, The common cause is usually a failing fuel pump but before you consider a replacement I would start first with performing a fuel pressure test with hooking up a pressure gauge to the fuel rail service port, normal pressure on a good running pump should be right at 32 to 45 PSI, if you find you have no pressure the take your 12 volt test light and or a volt meter and check to see if you have key on engine cranking voltage in and out of the inertia switch . If you have power in and out and not fuel pressure then you most likely have a failed pump. Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.

What is the inertia switch
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

The inertia switch on your 1999 is located in the passenger side kick panel under the glove box.
