It shouldn't go on and still start as I understand it. The fuel pump inertia switch it designed to shut the fuel pump off in case of a fuel leak or an accident. Inside the switch is a ball that is held magnetly rolls forward and engages a swith to stop fuel flow. It can be reset by by a button the top of the switch. It is located in the left rear of the trunk compartment.

Why would fuel cutout light on dash light and cutout switch not tripped and car will not start?

is the cutoff switch a normally open or normally closed switch ? If it a normally closed switch as it should be then the switch will need to activate with the ignition in order to supply fuel. There could be a problem with the fuel cutoff relay or a fuse. Also if you are using a non factory key then this might also happen.

Why does the Fuel cutout light always goes on and off while driving?

Because the "fuel cutout" unit is most likely lose and the ball inside it connects with the switches, hence making the light go on. Look in the rear on the drivers side behind the panel near to the floor and you should see an black little box with an red button sitting on a bracket with one bolt. If it is not it's loose and you will need to fasten it again.

What to do on Ford Escort 1991 if Fuel CutOut light is on only when engine is cranking and fuel switch was reset and fuses checked and it still wont start?

The switch may not be functional, or may not be rest correctly. If the vehicle was in an accident, the fuel pump or wires might have been damaged. this could cause the switch to retrip.AnswerI'm sure it is, as when i put it to wrong position the light is on all the time, if i put it into right position the light is on only when I'm starting, and the engine is cranking. Any idea what else might be causing this?

Your 94 probe gt has fuel cutout light on and then battery gauge goes low and high then levels off any help would be great?

The fuel cutout light has nothing to do with your battery level....if the level keeps flucuating (gauge needle going up and down) more than likely the alternator has a problem or you could have an electrical or grounding problem somewhere. I have all of the above at the moment. My gauges kept dancing up and down and then the alternator went. (Oh, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator, so you'll be replacing both at the same time if that's the problem.)

What is wrong with a 1991 Ford Escort if the fuel cutout light is on and it will not start?

While the probable answer is that the fuel cutout has been trigggered by some external shock, Another case where the light comes on is when the ignition switch has shorted. Open in the switch may not cause the same light. Shorted switch can cause the starter to become engaged anytime the gear selector (auto) is in park or nutral.Other shorts in the ignition switch can dump direct to ground without energizing the starter. A battery draw test would show voltage draw in this case but isolating voltage draw on modern cars is very hard with aftermarket or factory valet and alarms engaged. I don't know, but I had that once and had to find the button to reset it so I could start my car again. The button is in the trunk, on top on the right wheel well. Push it and your good to go...Maybe. Can the ignition switch still be bad even if it doesnt engage the started anytime, but its starting and the Fuel Cutout is lighted only when starting?
