Where is fuel shut off relay switch on a 2004 Chevy Aveo it won't start after minor accident


Doesn't have a inertia fuel shut off switch ! An the fuel pump relay wouldn't have anything to do with it because of an accident . Check out video on youtube crank's but doesn't start an run > I'm assuming that when you turn the key to the start position the engine spins but doesn't start an run ? Check for spark to spark plug's , buy a fuel pressure gauge an test for fuel . Video's on youtube for that also .

Whats the purpose of fuel shut off 94 mazda progete


The emergency fuel shut off switch is present to prevent gas fires in the event of an accident. It is an impact switch and disengages power to the pump after an accident. There has been situations where an accident caused fuel lines to break, the key was still supplying power to the pump, and a car fire resulted. This switch prevents such fires. Thanks and please rate.

Does the hyundai have a emerancy fuel shut off and where is it


hi, i checked alldata, hyundai calls it a fuel shut off solenoid, i don't know what it does exactly, meaning, if it stays open normally, and in an accident it shuts off upon impact, or if it can be reset, or have to be replaced. i would try to disconnect, then reconnect. if that doesn't work, maybe you would have to replace. but check all of the fuses also, maybe theres one that controls another part of the systems that would not be labeled fuel pump or relay. it's even possible to have a bad fuel pump relay due to the accident, it could have jarred the relay inoperable, heres a pic of the fuel cut off/shut off solenoid, you may have to enlarge, hope it helps!
