The fuel cutoff switch has a problem. It is ocated in the right rear quarter in the luggage compartment. You might even find the switch submerged in water. That happens sometimes due to a plugged drain hole in the bottom of the panel.

No, a loose gas cap can cause the check engine light to come on but not the low fuel light.

The light comes on when the car stalls because the engine is not running and the pump therefore is not pumping. The pressure will always be 0 when the engine stalls and the light is directly related to pressure. This is normal, you have no problem, other than the engine stalling.

the fuel cut off light comes on when there is a problem with the fuel cutoff switch (whether its bad or tripped) and/or when there is a problem with the charging system. your situation seems to be that the alternator belt is slipping which would cause lights n such to dim and lose power and the fuel cutoff light to come on. inspect the alternator belt, replace if worn or tighten it

There are many reasons this light could come on. One of the most common is being long overdue for an oil change.

Well I am assuming that you car has a manual transmission, and it is stalling because you are not pushing in the clutch when you come to a stop. The more likely reason is because your idle is set to low on your car. Your most likely culprit is the carburetor. However if you car is fuel injection I would take it into a mechanic and get their opinion.

Do you have a "service engine" light? Stalling could be caused by a wide variety of problems, such as a faulty sensor, ECM, or even the need for a tune up. Reading fault codes can narrow down the problem, if you take it to a local autozone, they will read the codes for free.

The acid in fruit makes the led light come on. Some fruits have more acid content than others and will do a better job. Some examples are, lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit, They all have a high acid content.

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

If the check engine light is or has illuminated, have the codes read. They may direct you to the problem area.

Go to AutoZone and ask one of the fellas to come out and "check your check engine light code". They will be able to tell you what the problem code is, as well as re-set your check engine light.

Concave mirrors converge the light rays. In case you do not know what converge is, it means to come together and meet at a point. A concave mirror makes a bigger image and it also makes a real image.

ETC, Electronic Temperature ControlETC, Electronic Throttle ControlETC, Electronic Timing Control Are you sure the light says etc?

The lightbulb was Thomas Edisons idea and hence makes an excellent idea symbol.
