Unhappy Fuel cutoff switch?

I searched for this already but can't find anything...

Long story short, I spun my evo last night and hit a curb. Nothing is severely damaged and everyone is alright, but the car wouldn't start afterwards. I'm thinking it's because I may have tripped a fuel cutoff switch...but I haven't been able to confirm that:
1) there is a fuel cutoff switch on the Evo IX
2) it could get tripped by inertia
3) where it is located.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm hoping that this is the only problem and that I didn't damage something internal.

I do not beleive there is one, although I may be wrong. I know some cars obviously do have them to prevent fires and everything, but I am not positive on this one.

I know there wasn't one on the Evo 8. I hit a tree square doing about 80 in reverse and the car started up just fine right afterwards.

Yes, I needed to start it in order to move it about 5 feet so I could get out of the car (it was wedged in between 2 other trees).


Will your car turn over but just not run? If this is the case, then another possibility would be the lack of spark.

Wow. May i ask why you hit a tree doing 80 in reverse? I didnt think the car would even go that fast in reverse... I know a guy who got pulled over for speeding in reverse... haha. He was doing 50 in a 35 and being an idiot. He drove on IX MR until he totaled it.

Driving down the Interstate....Dude ran me off the road. Car spun, I clipped a tree with the front end, taking the front bumper mask off the car and spinning me around so that the rear was going forward. Then another tree went into the trunk...

Ended up looking like this:

so is there an inertia sensor or something that would have detected the impact and caused the ECU to not allow the car to start?

Nope. Like I said, my car started right up after the crash that I posted pictuses of.

In fact, once the car was in the scrap yard, it still started up.

Have you determined if it is spark cut or fuel cut yet?

Check it yourself for spark cut. Also, if you've got any kind of dataloging capabilities, you can check it for fuel cut (via injector duty ycle) as well.

I found it. The wiring diagram was listed in this post.

Maybe you can trace the fault back with that. I cannot find an inertia switch.
