In part, the problem was a bad fuel filter. I found this out by searching free sites and then changing it myself. I already knew you had to hot the button in the back, but if your fuel system is bad, it trips that fuel cutoff over and over.

The fuel shut off switch is in the trunk I believe. It comes on when the car is hit and the switch opens up to shut down the fuel pump to prevent a fire from leaking fuel if the tank is ruptured or the line is nroken. You just rest the cot offswtich by pressing the button. Your owner manual explains very well.

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.

Fuel cutoff light comes on and car wont start


It may be that when the light comes on, the fuel pump cut off switch may be bad. The best advice I can give is to have the switch tested to see if that is the case.

The fuel cutoff switch appears to be jammed or not able to manual


It is not tripped if the red button is pushed down. The switch might just be defective. How many wires are going to the switch? And what colors are they?

U need to reset the fuel cutoff switch, that is what the light means. U didn't say what model, if it is a station wagon it is in the left rear cargo area trim panel, there is a hole with a plug in it, if it is a sedan it should be in one of the kick panels, also a hole, I think passenger side, if reseting the switch doesn't turn he light out then the switch is defective. this info is in the owners manual as well.
