    Reset your inertia switch. Should show location in owner's manual. Usually under the passenger side dash in right kick panel. Locate reset button and hold for 15 seconds. Turn key to accessory position for 5 secs. then back to off. Do this three times. Then crank engine on 4th try. Allow engine to run for about a minute then you should be fine.
