1994 Ford Probe GT: I am having problems with the fuel cutout. I can be on the interstate or just pulling out of a parking lot and the fuel will cutout. I shut the car off and press the fuel cutout switch and it restarts. The fuel cutout light on the dashboard may or may not light up before the fuel cuts out as I am driving.
Both my "check engine" and "brake" dashboard lights illuminate intermittently and have done so for the past couple of years. I had a $1000 brake job a year ago and the brakes work fine so I don't believe there is a problem there. The light continued to illuminate after the brake job. I'm wondering if I have a computer problem and if this is related to the above fuel cutout problem.

Re: 94 Ford Probe GT Fuel Cutout problem
VERY Probable! You need to get that Probe to a Mechanic and have it Diagnosed. You can also Purchase a Diagnostic tool for the Computer at Any Good Auto Parts Store and Try this yourself! This is Most Definitally a Computer Error Code Problem.

Have you ever ran your car out of gas before? if so you may have killed the fuel pump. Did you bump something? make sure the fuel shutoff is pushed in, it's ether in the trunk on the right hand side above the wheelwell behide a metal plate it's red. drivers side kick pannle to the left of the petales.
cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......
The fuel lines run from the fuel pump (which is in the tank) under the car to the to the fuel rail in the top of the engine. The fuel cutoff light means that the inertia switch has been triggered. It is a black box with a red button located in the hatch area.
There is a fuel cutout switch located in the trunk. It is often referred to as the inertial fuel cut, as it is designed to trigger in an accident. Sometimes it can trigger at other times, like moving things around in the trunk or a particularly violent pothole etc.
It is located on the wall of the spare tire well, in the bottom of the trunk, and should have a user-operated button or switch on the outside of the housing. Resetting this should fix your problem.
