Some cars are equiped with a fuel pump shutoff switch. It's

usually activated by some sort of inertia switch. It's there in

case you're in an accident so the engine doesn't keep running and

explode. Sometimes hitting a large pothole or bump will trip it.

Generally speaking, the button or switch to turn it back on is

located in the trunk somewhere. Mine is located near the passenger

rear seat in the trunk. But I'm not too familiar with your type of

vehicle, so you'll have to figure that one out. Good luck!
