Question about 2002 Saturn Sl

1 Answer

Does my 2002 gave a fuel shut of switch and if so where is it

I cannot get my car to start, it wants to start, just does not do it. Orginally the battery died, and now the gas gauge is not reading any of the gas that is in the tank. I know I had at least 1/2 tank, but believe I have at about 3/4 tank. I added 1.10 gallons of gas, and it is still not even reading that.
The car almost started when I sprayed starter fluid into the air filter and line.

    I cannot seem to find if my car as a shut off/on switch for the fuel pump. I have looked very where I can think if, trunk,under the car where the fuel pumps is, glove box. fuse boxes, under the seats. I didn't see anything that could act like a switch or even resemebled one.

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head... In your case if the sensor is cracked it can be shorting out they electrical system.. its an idea there isn't a fuel shut off I've had this problem and seen if before so goodluck

My headlights for my 2002 mercury mountaineer will not shut off


Will they shut off once you get out of the car? You may gave a short in he wire at he control switch which has bypassed the switch.

My 2002 PT Cruiser started to over heat..then all of the sudden, it shut off. Is there an emergency shut off switch for the fuel for situations like this and if so where would it be located. Had no...


Only Ford products have an inertia switch for the fuel system.
If it really did overheat, the engine computer can shut down the engine.
If it won't start, you'll need to check the basics like fuel pressure and spark. There could be engine damage.

Car starts then will shut off


The first thing I would check with the limited information that you gave, is to have the fuel filter changed if you haven't done so. We need more information to diagnose other problems, including engine size, etc. Hope this helps you, Rick

Fuel pump shut off switch


no it doesn't. the fuel pum has a relay that is located in the junction box under the hood if your vehicle is not starting because your not getting fuel check the relay. I use the a/c clutch relay to switch with the fuel pump relay if the vehicle starts just replace the relay if the vehicle doesn't start then you have a bad fuel pump...please rate
