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?
Check the fuel pump fuse in the fuse block of the engine bay.
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?
Sounds like you need a new starter!
either alternator or wrong size battery
Hello, Jamison here, Ford has A cut-out switch, Most of the time its in the trunk on the passenger side (NOT REALLY EASY TO FIND) But easy to reset, Look in your owners manual, Or call A ford dealer.............Jamison.
Your serpentine belt is broke
my 93 ford escort lx cranks but wont start an run what is wrong with it please tell me
more than likely u need some fuel injecter cleaner that is what was wrong with mine
Have you checked to be certain that the wires are still firmly connected?
your altnaitor is out
Belt slipping Did coolant get on belt during replacement?
Typically, that means that there is either a damaged wire, something is plugged in wrong or someone has connected something to the wiring improperly.
Replace that relay that is connected to the pos batt cable; I believe that's your problem.
It is important to pay attention to the warning lights in a car. The Service engine light means something is wrong with the engine and once it is taken care of, it will turn off on its own.
Which wires do you move? It sounds like you have a short in the wires that you move or touch.
It means that there is something wrong with the engine and not the battery
you left your emergency flasher on overnight
I it is orange something will mostlikely be wrong and you need to talk to your mom and doctor.
check if the alternator belt is on it is probably after coming off
Is it possibly a short in the wiring? I think I'd start there.
if you meen NO LIGHT in the instrument pannel just check the battery, might be really dead
the only reason a car will run rough or not start after refueling is either the wrong type of fuel has been put in[i.e diesel into a petrol or visa versa]or the fuel put in is contaminated.
You gotta tell us what's wrong first.
My car wouldn't start today for awhile and the engine lights and battery light came on.What is wrong with my car?
