Where is the inertia fuel cutoff on 2004 a4 3.0L?

My 2004 audi a4 3.0 cranks but doesn't want to start. It worked fine Friday morning but when I needed to drive it back an hour later it turned on for about 2 seconds but just turned off? I just bought a Fuel Filter for it I just need to change it, but I dont know if that is actually the problem? Please help.

SOURCE: 1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

SOURCE: 97 gmc pickup, 5.7 eng, fuel pump not operating,

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

SOURCE: 1985 Ford F-150 Truck (EFI) Fuel Problems

Same problem with my 85 F-150 5.0 EFI---turned out that the fuel pump relay under the hood was teriffically corroded on the inside (I opened up the relay to look inside). When I checked the voltage at the fuel pump it would show 3.5-6 volts instead of 12 volts.

I was thinking fuel blockage or perhaps failure of the in-tank pumps. Sometimes the truck would start and run, othertimes it would neither start nor run. Typically, if running it would stay running until turned off (where the relay had to break).

Changing the green fuel pump relay fixed the problem--12 volts now at the pump and no reoccurance.

Good luck--let me know if this fixed your F-150.

SOURCE: 2000 Crown Vic cranks but won't start.

Check the fuel pump reset switch again, if it is popped back out then replace that little switch in the trunk, any ford one will do. it works off a magnet and a bearing to close the circuit for the fuel pump. easy fix.

2004 Hyundai Accent would not start after it had warmed up. Subsequently it would not start at all but the valve cover blew off.


That sounds like a timing/ cooling system issue. The coolant sensor would adjust the timing etc. Your tech would have to scan the car & check the live readings (HOT & COLD) & check the emissions. Put all the pieces together & solve the puzzle

Is there a fuel reset switch in a 1990 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme


No GM doesn't use a reset switch (really called a "Inertia fuel pump cutoff switch"). The fuel pump is cut off by an oil pressure sensor. If this car has the original pump you likely just need to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the engine air intake?

Yes. Unfortunately, it sounds like it is your fuel pump, and if it is, I believe it's located in the gas tank. Would be extremely hard to replace it yourself unless you have the proper tools, jacks, a lift for the car, etc.... If you decide to do so, write back and I'll provide step-by-step instruction.

I don't see where your car uses an inertia activated fuel cut off switch. Check the owners manual to verify.
