The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.

I reset the fuel cutoff switch in a 91 ford escort and it still won't start so I disconnected the battery for 15 minutes and it still won't start. What else can I try and would a bad switch or fuel relay...


yes a bad fuel cut off switch could be the problem, it just has 2 wires all you have to do is jump them together if the switch is bad and the fuel pump will run. I think you should take a look at the timing belt more then likely that is the problem.

My 1991 escort wont start. the fuel cutoff light comes on when i try, but ive already checked the switch above the right wheel well. it hasent been tripped yet the car still wont start.


If you push down on the red button on the fuel cut-off I bet you'll find it is tripped, and you just don't see it. The cut-off doesn't pop up a noticeable amount when it trips, but can still be tripped. If you find it hasn't been tripped, try disconnecting your battery for about 20 minutes to reset the computer. I've seen the cut-off trip in many escorts simply from hitting a bump on the road. Please let me know what you find.

1991 ford escort gt car will not start car was running stalled on dash fuel cut off appeared


Possible inertia switch if veh is equipped, let me get this right though, the light came on when the veh stalled??? didnt they all come on???? warning lights i mean???? try pouring a lil gas into the throttle body and then turning over with the starter, if this works and makes it run for a second then your veh is not getting fuel. if its not getting fuel, then there is no fuel pressure. If there is no fuel pressure there is either a leak that you would almost have to see, or the fuel pump is not running. One way to tell if the pump is not running is to have someone turn the key to the run position while you kneel at one of the rear tires of the veh. you should hear the pump come on for 1- 3 seconds, kind of a whining sound, but slight. If its coming on, but the veh still wont start without adding fuel ,that still doesnt mean that the pump is good, but will eliminate the inertia switch. reply and we go from there...

Fuse box


On a ford Escort there are only 2 fuse boxes, one is located on the driver side, under the instrument panel, and the other under the hood.
