Try checking for a fuel pump shutoff switch in the trunk by the rear passenger seat. It might look like a red button that needs to be depressed. Look for a hole in the paneling by the trunk hinge. If you have hit a bump or were involved in a minor accident it might trip so your engine doesn't run in the event of an accident.

How do you bypass the fuel cutoff switch in a 1994 Ford Escort?

To do that would compromise your safety, and of anyone else in the area, if you have a wreck. The purpose is to cutoff the fuel pump if you have a wreck, so fuel is not spewing out all over the pavement. On an Escort, it also locks the automatic seat belts down, if you have them, so you stay in the seat if the door flies open during a wreck.

Why would the fuel cutout light come on on your 1989 Ford Escort GT and how do you go about fixing it?

Does the car start? because if it doesn't... then your fuel cutoff has been tripped, likely by the car getting hit closer to the gas tank and tripping the cutoff valve. if it's anything like the cutoff in a '91 escort, you should be able to take off the small panel access in the trunk/hatch and reset the switch, if it's the same, it's pretty easy

What if you push the fuel cut off button on a 1994 Ford Escort and nothing happens?

That's normal. The fuel cutoff does not cutoff the fuel by being pushed in, it cuts off by being popped up. Using a small screwdriver in the slot, push the button up until it pops. If the car is running, it should slowly stall and die. Now, if you did THAT, and nothing happened, the fuel cutoff needs to be replaced. Pushing the button in RESETS the cutoff, it does not activate it.
