1995 NAS D90 has been running like a dream. I let my daughter drive it last night from the football game, parked it now won't start. It was her first time to really drive a manual and there were a LOT of stalls and very jerky driving. My question before I dive into search and do air, gas, spark tests is, could this horribly bad driving tripped the roll-over switch? There don't seem to be any codes. Where is the roll over switch and how do I check it or reset it? Also, when I was checking the fuel pump fuse I saw this. Picture to follow...Seems a bit squirrely.. Engine just turns and turns never catches or even gets close... Any other thoughts? Click image for larger version

Can you hear fuel pump? Does starter turn?
Any aftermarket alarm system? Nuff gas?
Driving off road is tougher than learning a stick shift.

It's going to be something simple.

Not sure, could never really hear it before. Starter turns and engine turns over just fine. Plenty of gas.

What about a crank position sensor? Could all of herky-jerky caused something like that to be off?

Well, located rollover switch and as it is covered with a rubber "boot" tried pressing it or resetting it, no luck. Tried to restart truck and engine just turns over.

Went back to rollover switch, thinking perhaps I didn't "reset" it correctly and tried pushing from all angles, felt like what I thought a very short reset might feel like and VOILA!!!!!! truck starts great!!!

Thanks Board. Had it all ready in the street to be towed...

Will see if it happens anymore......

Thanks Jason!!


Now what are those three wires and the big red one for?

don't give up on teaching the daughter to drive stick ... it's a life skill that will get her into the best colleges in the country!

X2.
My youngest wants me to get a stick after he passes his test in January.
Smart kid

Well, drove it and wouldn't start after I got out.

Had it towed to Dealer. Found some wiring issue with the fuel pump voila!

Been running like a champ ever since!!

Glad that worked out Kevin. My son did the same thing. Teaching him how to drive a stick in a CJ5 with a 352FE in it. We had a couple 8 second bull rides for sure.
It pulled the lead off the coil and we were DOA where we were after it stalled. Took me a few to figure out which wire got mangled in tne melee. He drives that thing like a champ now though.
