if your vehicle does have a cut off switch it would be located in the trunk behind the trunk lining on either rear wheel fender well. also not only is there a relay for the fuel pump but also a fuse as well. make sure the 10 amp fuse(red) is still good. it should be in either the power distribution box under the hood or the fuse block under the dash on the drivers side..also there might be a junction box underneath the vehicle where there is a connection loose. if all else fails check the main wire harness leading from distribution box .

Looking for emergency fuel shut off for 96 Olds Aurora


Only Ford products have inertia switches.
The relay is powered by a fuse and controlled by the computer.

I have a 2006 ford f350 and the fuel pump isnt working is there a shutoff switch


Yes. The switch is usually located around the passengers kickpanel. There should be an access hole to press the button on the switch. Sometimes the part is just above the carpet and sometimes you have to remove the kickpanel. If you are unable to find this switch on the passengers side,then look on the drivers side kickpanel.

Under the hood is a Powerbox. The shutoff switch (inertia switch) gets its power from the Fuel pump Relay after the Ignition is turned on. If resetting the shutoff switch does not help, your fuel pump Relay may be bad. On some Ford models, the horn Relay is the same Relay used for the fuel pump. This would allow you to swap and test before buying a new Relay.

I do not get any electric power on the feul pump, i have tried to activate the emergency shut off valve but still no power. i have taken electrical messurment at the switch but there was no power either.


Hello, You should have a fuelpump Relay in the Powerbox under the hood. The power goes through this Relay, then it has a fuse in the fusebox inside the car, and the Inertia sensor is next and then the fuelpump. If you have no power going to the Inertia switch, then you may have a bad fuse or a bad Relay.

Check with Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts for the correct Relay. Ford uses the same part for several jobs and you need to replace the bad Relay. Sometimes you can just switch identical Relays to find the bad one. Autozone is pretty good for having diagrams. A bad fuse would mean something went bad either on the Relay side or the fuelpump side of the fuse.

Truck acts like it wants to start but it won't turn over, changed fuel filter. now i need to find out where and what to check out next. thanks in advance:)


The Inertia safety switch may have tripped on you. Depending on which Model of Ford you have, the Inertia switch is in different places. The most common place is at the top of the Drivers kick panel or the Passengers kick panel. Sometimes a hole is provided to allow a finger to pass through to press a button on top of the switch. On other Models, the kick panel must be removed. Yet a third place would be behind the glovebox around the computer.

When you turn the Key to Run, a short burst of the fuelpump will pressurize the system and then it waits until the engine starts, then continues running. You should hear the fuelpump run. When the button on the Inertia switch is pressed it makes a circuit.

Your truck should also have a Relay for the fuelpump and the Ignition. If the Inertia switch reset does not help, one of the Relays may be bad. Check whether you have spark at the plugs and go from there. If you have spark, you may not have fuel and need a fuelpump Relay.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

Engine turns over, but will not start


Listen for the fuelpump when you first turn the key. It will run only 1 or 2 seconds and then cut off. If you do not hear it run, there is a switch in the trunk next to the Airride.

This is the Inertia switch and you need to push the button on it and hold it in for 1 or 2 seconds. Then turn your Ignition key and see if the fuelpump runs. It should start fine after this. The Inertia switch is a safety switch and sometimes can trip when a door or trunklid is slammed.

If your vehicle does not start, you still could have a Bad fuelpump relay which you will find in one of the Powerboxes under the hood. There are also Ignition relays for some models, again in a Powerbox. There are scanners which you can use to diagnose the problem.

The antitheft system can interfere with starting. As a last effort you can try to punch n the Doorcode and try to start the car within seconds of entering the code.

I have replaced the fuel pump amongst a lot of other things. I can spray gas or starting fluid in the throtal body and it will run rough untill the fumes ware out. Its a 1995 ford explorer 4x4 xlt


If you hear the fuelpump operate the first 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to RUN position, the fuelpump is working. If you do not hear the fuelpump run, check the Inertia switch which should be in the side panel of the rear cargo area. If you have an owners manual check for the Inertia switch location.

To reset the Inertia switch, hold the button on it for 2-3 seconds. You should now hear the pump run. You may also have a fuelpump relay under the hood in one of the Powerboxes. The Powerbox may have a fusible link from the Battery. When the fusible link is OK and the Pump Relay is OK, there is a fuse in the Fuse panel. Then finally the Ignition switch will trip the Pump relay. As power flows through the wire to the fuelpump the Inertia switch can break the power connection.

So you have 5 powerpoints before the fuelpump will work. Fusible link, Pump Relay, Fuse Panel, Ignition Switch,and Inertia switch. These must all work before the fuelpump can run.
