    sounds like maybe a fuel cutoff switch but your description was vague and cutoff as well...more info?

96 chevy cav. 2.2 died after hitting a bump,wont start,but if i hold pedal all the way down, sounds like it is firing on one cylr. but wont get running


Probably something got loose after hitting the bump.
Check the fuel pump, maybe a fuse got loose or burn, or maybe there is no electricity running to the fuel pump.

After a bump it dies and now it wont turn on gas meter not working and no spark it just cranks on my jeep grand cherokee 1996


There should be a reset for the fuel tank. It is a safety switch that they have added to stop fires from rearend collisions. Not sure where it is on your vehicle. Look in owners manual or call dealership.

Car stalled out and died. Cranks, but wont start all of the sudden.


On an incline that you stopped on, dont under estimate that if your low on fuel it may not be picked up by the fuel pump, or your fuel pump may have went out. If you run low on fuel often or up & down hill on low fuel will cause your fuel pump to burn out premature, they even say not to run less than a qrtr tank to be safe, but todays cost in fuel usually people wait till the last minute (gallon) which puts a strain on the fuel pump as the gas cools the motor and incline and decline in roads will mimic a low tank. What doesnt make sence is you sprayed starting fluid which should have fired for a few seconds, which brings you to spark issues, check you coil pack plugs and wires, most likely coil pack over plug and wires should still fire even if a plug or wire goes bad, but the coil pack controls the power going to the wire then plugs.

Were is the fuel safty shut off on a 95 z71


There is no fuel safety shut off switch on any vehicle except a ford. If you have no fuel pressure check for power to the pump. If there is no power let me know and I'll get you more info. If there is power than your fuel pump is likely gone bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

CAR DOESN'T START, I HIT A BUMB AND THE CAR SHUT OFF, WHEN I TURN THE KEY NOTHING HAPPENS, RADIO, LIGHTS COME ON


Some vehicles have a fuel pump cut off switch that shuts all power to fuel pump in case of an accident. It activates by inertia...meaning that a severe "bump" will activate switch, thereby cutting off the fuel pump. If your vehicle has that switch, hitting that bump may have activated switch. If you do have that switch, reset it by pressing in the reset button.

Few months ago had fuel pump assembly replaced. Not the pump but the assembly. Location is behind the rear seat above the fuel tank and actually its in the tank but can be reached by removing the rear seat...


I would say that you are on the right track , I think that maybe when the work was done on the fuel pump assy the mechanic may have pinched the power wire and hitting the bumps has caused it to short.you will have to take the seats out again (sorry).You need to look for a damaged wire or evidence of arcing .Hope this helps.
