Where is the fuel pump located?

Inside the fuel tank. Check the fuse,relay, and is the security light on constant. Just things to consider before replacing a $200+ pump.

2006 Ford Expedition blowing Fuel Pump Relay fuse

Try resetting fuel pump. I do believe the reset button is on the forward passengers side of vehicle. The button is behind the plastic shield. Reset once or twice. This hopefully will fix your problem. Look in your manual for exact placement of fuel pump reset button

I need to know where I can find the fuel reset button.

Although many Ford vehicles have a fuel pump inertia swtich that can be reset if tripped, there isn't a fuel reset button on this vehicle. Power for the fuel pump is supplied by a 20 amp fuse [#6 in the relay center I believe] and the power is routed through the fuel pump relay which is controlled by the Engine Control Module and then sent out to the pump. I rarely see a blown fuse or bad relay but do see a lot of pumps that wear out an quit working.

Ran out of gas and car wouldn't start again. passing person said reset button was problem. where is it on a 2002 saturn?

Gm cars, I believe, do not have fuel reset buttons, or inertia switches. If your fuel pump is working, you should be able to hear it run for about 3 seconds when the ignition key is first turned on. Often, when a car runs out of gas, the fuel pump will have a hard time picking up fuel. You may have to spray some starting fluid into the intake or throttle body to get the engine started. I will double check to verify the absence of a fuel rest button.

Reset fuel pump after a wreck

on some of the escorts, there is a red button, that is in the trunk area, located on the right upper side, this is a fuel pump reset button, it allows the fuel pump to activate, and pump the gas from the tank to your engine, i believe that the sysytem is designed to shut off the fuel in the event of an accident, so that is why it has to be reset. hope this information helps you out.

My husband has a 99 Ford Ranger 4WD and is stranded at work. He said it is telling him to push the fuel reset button, and he cannot find this button in his manual?


See Figures 1 and 2

  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.

You may need to pull the carpet down and away from the instrument panel in order to access the switch.
