    Went over speed bump - car died

    Just looking to vent!

    Literally, went over a hump style speed bump by my garage and the car, '91 5speed, modified, just died.

    I was probably going less than 10 mph.

    Now it won't start. : (

    Had just got it running after years in the garage.

    Will be going through the DIS Troubleshooting checklist and hopefully will find the culprit!

    I would check the fuel pump shut off switch in the trunk if you haven't already

    Ignition switch would be another item to check, since they physically separate as they wear out.

    First thing that came to my mind was battery cables and connections
