[DML] Re: 2653 Stalled out on the highway this morning............

A couple of possabilities come to mind. First I would check the
inertia switch and make sure it is mounted ahead of the bonnet
release, NOT hanging on the Lambda counter. Next see if it has a white
splotch of paint on it. If it does not then get a new one. Another
common problem is a bad pick-up coil. That would happen a lot more
frequently and would not need a bump to cause it. The last is a whole
list of causes which all have to do with bad connections, loose plugs,
or pins in a connector that have backed out. Means going over the
entire electrical system. Start at the fuse box.
