I am not a mechanic by any stretch, which is probably painfully obvious by now, but this is the main reason that brought me here.

The airbags inside her car had been deployed, and a few people were speculating that as soon as the airbags go off there is a safety fuel cut-off, in which the car can't be restarted, but I've never found mention of this in my research on Saturns, and know that some other makes/models could be started regardless of airbag deployment. I know for a fact that the '96 SL2 did not have an inertia switch, so I'm just trying to rule out the "airbag fuel cut-off" as well as any "impact-sensitive" fuel cut-off.
