Where is the fuel cut off switch on a 2001 suzuki grand vitara

why not post symptoms and ask a question.???
no engine size stated of the 3.
first off. there is no such switch.!
THE PCM on ALL suzuki's made In usa (ours vary)control the fuel pump and injectors under all conditions, not you, or any switch
it has no inertial switches like FORDs, its not a Ford.

the PUMP (fuel)
is activated cranking, the PCM closes a relay the relay sends 12vdc to the pump cranking ,an when running,
if the engine stalls for any reason the PCM cuts fuel at the injectors
and the PUMP.
that is how it works,
reasons to cut fuel are.
1: not running
2: lost spark
3: lost spark precursors, CMP /CKP senders, (same as lost spark)
4: cuts fuel cranking in the wide open throttle crank mode (super secret unflood mode,)

How do you reset a fuel pump switch on a 2001 Ford Explorer? Where is the switch located?

The fuel pump cut-off switch activates in the event of an accident or even sometimes from a hard bump.

On 1995 to 2001 models, the switch is in the right front corner, mounted on the toe board , just beside the right foot kick panel. On 2002 and newer (on the 4 doors) the switch is mounted on the right foot kick panel.

If the button is up, just push it back down to reset the fuel pump circuit.
