Why won't your 1997 mercury mountaineer start when you turn the key it turns over but doesn't fire up Could your electronic brain be your problem you used it 1 hour before and it had no problems?

I would check that fuel pump reset plug that is located underneath the kick panel on the passenger side. Once I went to the drive in movie theater, with no problems with my car. I attempted to leave the movie, and it would not start. Once again, my passenger had stretched their legs and the plug came out. You will have to lie down (face up) on the floor of your truck to see the white plug. Just try pressing it all the way up (to make sure that it is in good), and hopefully you can start her up! Good luck!
