My 2000 911 coupe engine died after going over a minor bump

Customer Question

My 2000 911 coupe engine died after going over a minor bump ( railroad tracks I drive oner every day on my way to work, nothing even remotely jarring) I coasted over to the side of the road.
When I tried to restart the car, all dash lights come on as normal but the starter won't turn.
Tried a spare key. Door locks and alarm seem to be working normally.
Disconnected the battery to reset everything. No help.
What gives? I know its one of those dumb sh-t, why didn't I know that answers.

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
By the description of what happened and the symptoms, it sounds like a ground came loose, which would not be unusual that a ground bolt would come loose over time from going over railroad tracks daily.
If you need the engine ground locations, I just need the 17 digit vin number to pull the locations
