Sorry but the only fix is to replace it, the internal locking pawl is probably worn.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvours my car won't start


Did the people that told you to change the fuel pump
diagnose the entire electrical system for the fuel pump
or just guess at your expense?

If your the one working on your own car, then I have to say
if you don't have factory diagnostic manuals,wiring diagrams
& experience, not only car repairs but basic electricity, your
in trouble, because you have no reference material & no way
to know where to start testing

After 1996, the car has pretty much gone to the repair shops,
as most people never stayed up with new technology

If the new pump was installed by a repair shop,then you don't
need me to tell you the problem.
The shop failed to properly diagnose & resolve & that may be
what they do alot, as they are not up to speed

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.


To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

How do you get a Fiat Punto (2002) fuel cut off switch to stay down? Time for a new one? Or quick fix?


this works like a trip switch ,,, are you sure there is no electrical fault??? if the electrics are ok i would replace it ,,,, it is possible to bypass this but its not recomended because if a fault occurs in the future there will be no trip switch to break the circuit and this means petrol will keep being supplied and in a crash that could be a fire hazard ,,, so for safety retain the system as it is designed,,,

Front right side hit . replaced concerter and won't crank over /or start fuel pump doesn'd even come on when key is on ?


ricks63toy, I believe that Ford still uses what is called an inertia switch even in the hybrids. This switch will shut off in the event of an accident shutting off the fuel pump. This is a safety feature built into the vehicle. Seeing that this is a newer vehicle I trust that you still have the manual. If not, the switches are usually located in the trunk. Look on the side walls of the trunk and see if you can locate it. It is usually marked by a sticker. When you find the switch, push the red button down until you hear a click. This will reset the switch and allow power back to your fuel pump. Good luck with this.
