There is no cut off switch. Check all fuses and the fuel pump relay.

Reseting the fuel pump kill switch.

Before you reset the fuel pump, make sure to read all of the following instructions!!!!!


1.) Look for an access panel in the trunk, driver's side; it might even be labeled "Fuel Pump Reset".

2.) Open the compartment and press the red button. This should reset the pump.

3.) At this point it might be a good idea to "burp" the fuel tank. This will probably be the easiest thing you do all day! Just pop the cover and unscrew the gas cap, this will release any preasure built up inside the tank. As long as you're in a controled environment, go ahead and leave the cap open until you finish "Step 4". Otherwise "burp" it a couple of times while you're priming the lines.

4.) The next step is to prime the pump. In other words, make sure there is enough gas in the fuel lines to start the car. The easiest way to do this is by turning the key back and forth from the "OFF" to the "ON" position. *** Be sure not to turn all the way to the "START" position until you have performed "Step 4", at least 3 or 4 times. If you attempt to start the car before the fuel pump is properly primed, you will run a serious risk of burning out the pump. This could lead to even more costly repairs!!!

5.) Replace the gas cap before attempting ignition.

6.) Once you have reset the pump, burped the tank, primed the fuel lines, and replaced the gas cap; you should be all set! Go ahead and give it a crank, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gave you a picture below of part of the wiring diagram to the fuse panel and it has the wire colors as well. I could only give you that much because I can't post any pictures to large (size wise in computer size) so thats the best i could do for right now. It does look as if there may be a fuseable link in 2 places maybe more but i just took a quick look. If you need anymore digrams you can email me at with detailed info so I can send you the correct stuff. I doubt it's the ignition switch myself. i think you are looking at a wiring problem and i've only been doing this or 25+ years. Bet your kicking yourself for spending the money on the ECU. Sorry had to throw that in. Anyway i hope this helps you and good luck and feel free to write if needed.

From your description it sounds like either the fuel pump died or the fuel filter is clogged. Another possibility is water in the gas, which also swells the filtering media in the filter and essentially clogs it. Try removing the filter keeping as much fuel in it as possible then draining it into a clear jar from the inlet. If there is water it should be below the fuel in the jar.
If you are handy enough to use a noid light on the injectors, you certainly can diagnose the fuel pump.
Also check all of the fuses and find out if a rollover/crash sensitive fuel pump switch was used on you model.

Fuel pump switch overly sensitive is there a fix

You can bypass the inertia switch or replace it. Bypassing the switch is NOT recommended since it is a safety switch to cut the fuel pump off in case of a rollover type accident.

Fuel air mixture too rich on a 98 nissan pathfinder

My guess would be a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator problem, or a Mass air flow sensor.
The O2 sensor does not come into play until the engine has run for a couple of minutes.
Is the check engine light on ?

When the MAF on most vehicles reach a point of preventing the engine from starting, you can usually just unplug it and the engine will start. If that doesn't work-
You may want to try having the O2 sensor, ( Oxygen sensor ), checked. It works with other components of the emission system and can cause similar symptoms as the MAF, including preventing the engine from starting.

with out a doubt it is over fueling ,should be a small amount on heavey acceleration,on startup the is an overinjection feature to aid starting,If you go to a deisel injectionservice centre they can cut the fuel back .In the worst case scenario you may need the injectors serviced and unless it has doneone hell of a lot of miles the pump shouldnt need any more than adjustment.One thing you need to be aware of is they must have clean fuel , no skimping on filters---------happy motoring
