What vehicle? Look in your owner's manual. Don't have one, get one.

No there is no fuel shut off switch on this vehicle.

If the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) can't be reset ( so the button on top of the switch remains in the UP position ) then no power is going to the electric fuel pump and the engine won't run

There is not a fuel cut off switch on a 1995 caravan. The fuel pump is electric and when the engine is not running or being started the fuel pump is shut down. So no need for a fuel cut off switch.

If you are looking for a inertia switch or a manual shut off, a Jeep does not use either. The fuel system is computer controlled with relays.

The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the front passenger footwell area in the right upper corner.

Fuel Pump Shut-Off SwitchIn the event of an accident the emergency fuel shut off switch may activate. If your car's engine cranks, but will not start, you should try resetting this switch. Do so only with your ignition in the "off" position and after you have determined there are no fuel leaks. The switch is located on the front passenger's foot area, behind what is called the "kick panel".

A fuel pump switch is just a switch to shut of an electrical fuel pump or a electrically controlled fuel pump.There are several control systems for this switch:Most modern cars have an impact triggered fuel pump cut off switch. This is so the car won't burst into flames after a crash.Many cars have an oil pressure triggered switch so if the engine runs out of oil the engine stops.Virtually all modern car have a system where the engine computer runs a fuel pump relay.

A 1976 Ford Bronco would still have a carburetor for the engine , so it does not have a fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) like the Ford fuel injected engines do ( that use an electric fuel pump ) * if that is what you mean

If the fuel pump inertia switch has " tripped " so the button on top of the switch has popped up , by pushing the button down the switch should reset and restore the electric flow to the electric fuel pump

The fuel pump shut off switch is located on the passenger side of the car underneath the dashboard on the interior, underneath the edge of the carpet. To reset the switch, push the little red button on the top of the switch down, so you can no longer see any red through the little slot.

No, General Motors uses no emergency fuel cutoff(ford is the main user, inertia switch)

The fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) opens the circuit to the electric fuel pump so that no power is going to the fuel pump when the vehicle has received a substantial jolt ( collision or maybe hitting a bad pot hole ) It is a safety device that has to be manually reset if the switch " trips "

On a 1991 Ford Explorer : I believe the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the front passenger footwell , under the front edge of the carpet , mounted on the toe board , just to the right of the transmission hump

Dont need to switch fuel off to change filter, the cut off or inertia switch is for emergencies only. With ignition off there will be no fuel pump running so the filter can be easily changed. There will be a residual pressure in system when engine off, dont worry about this as its normal to have a bit of petrol spraying out, just watch your eyes.

On my 1995 Ford Explorer if the switch has been tripped so that no power is going to the electric fuel pump , the fuel reset light comes on in the gauge cluster in the dash

There is no emergency fuel shut off. The ignition switch just shuts down the Power train Control Module. The fuel pressure and timing of the fuel to the fuel rails at the engine are also controlled by that control module. The only control the driver has over fuel delivery is that of turning the ignition switch on or off, and how much you press the gas pedal. I personnally think that is why we have so many fires during collisions, the pressure is on the line to the engine as long as there is power to the fuel pump which is mounted in the fuel tank.

I wouldn't think so , I saw a mechanic unplug the wiring harness to my fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) with the engine running as a way of removing the pressure from the fuel lines ( he just waited for the engine to stop running after that ) So , just carefully unplug the wire connection to the switch

i hardwired my fuel pump so tada flip a switch and fuel pump is on

User Avatar

I've heard there is one on top of the fuel tank for roll over protection , although I'm not sure

The switch is broken, so change it and all will be well.

The fuel cut off switch on a 2002 Cavalier does not exist. There is no such thing as a fuel cut off switch on a vehicle. So do not look for this type of thing on your car.

Did The 1997 Chevy Lumina have a electronic fuel relay shut off button if say you ran out of gas would that button kick off if so how do I switch that back on so my car will run.

User Avatar

Fuel pump shut off is located behind the panel just forward of the passenger door (front). If commercial vehicle, may be under steering column. If not tripped, your problem may be the fuel pump itself. (This is my problem with my 96)
