Where is the fuel cutoff switch on a 1992 Ford Escort?
Look in the trunk area on the passenger side. It has a little panel to allow access to the fuel cutoff.
To do that would compromise your safety, and of anyone else in the area, if you have a wreck. The purpose is to cutoff the fuel pump if you have a wreck, so fuel is not spewing out all over the pavement. On an Escort, it also locks the automatic seat belts down, if you have them, so you stay in the seat if the door flies open during a wreck.
Why would the fuel cutout light come on on your 1989 Ford Escort GT and how do you go about fixing it?
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
