Look under the dash on the driver's side in the kick panel, near the park brake linkage . There is a black switch body there, topped by a red indicator. This is the fuel-system inertia cut off switch

GENERAL INFORMATION

This switch shuts off the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Once the switch has been tripped, it must be reset manually in order to start the engine.
The inertia switch is located on the driver's side of the vehicle behind the kick panel near the driver's feet.


RESETTING THE SWITCH

See Figure 1

Fig. Fig. 1: The inertia switch reset button is located on the top of the switch

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF .
  2. Ensure that there is no fuel leaking in the engine compartment, along any of the lines or at the tank. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  3. If no leakage and/or odor is apparent, reset the switch by pushing the reset button on the top of the switch.
  4. Cycle the ignition switch from the ON to OFF positions several times, allowing five seconds at each position, to build fuel pressure within the system.
  5. Again, check the fuel system for leaks. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  6. If there is no leakage and/or odor of fuel, it is safe to operate the vehicle. However, it is recommended that the entire system be checked by a professional, especially if the vehicle was in an accident severe enough to trip the inertia switch.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the driver's side kick panel.
  3. Unplug the connector on the inertia switch.
  4. Remove the retaining bolts and remove the switch.

To install:

Where is the reset button for the emergency shut off valve for the gas line


RESETTING THE FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.
