Exclamation 1996 Mustang GT-NEED HELP ASAP! Wont Start

Hey guys i need help with my car. i pulled it on a lift and hit the lift really hard and then turned off. the inertia switch is fine but the theft light was blinking. The car cranks but wont start. Im wondering if it is the anti theft system and if it needs to be reset or something. I need help asap!!! thanks.

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins and then reconnect it and try starting your car... Just a thought

Fuel pump reset switch. Drivers side trunk behind liner. should be a hole you can reach through to reset it. Just a thought.

If it's cranking alright, alternator shouldn't be keeping it from starting.

I assume when you said intertia switch is fine that you mean that the fuel pump interia cutoff in the trunk is fine. When you turn it to run, do you hear the fuel pump kick on momentarily?
