Where is the kill switch on a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT?
IF YOU MEAN THE FUEL SHUT OFF SWITCH, IT'S ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE UNDER THE DASH BY THE TOE KICK OF THE RIGHT FOOT. IF IT DOESN'T CLICK WHEN YOU PRESS IT THEN ITS SOMETHING ELSE.
The fuel pump inertia switch (shut off switch) is located in the right front passenger area. It is in the right front corner by the right foot kick panel mounted on the toe board. If you don't see or smell gas leaking , press the button down if it has popped up on the top of the switch. This will allow power to your fuel pump.
Yes it is normally ford in the trunk / hatch back. behind the drivers side panel please be sure to disconnect the battery before even going near the panel and shorts are very common in the ford escorts kill switch. Safety first:) rubber glove are your number one aid when dealing with electric also rumber handled tools do not use Magnetic tools when working on the kill switch
