Hi

It should be by the drivers door foot-well.

If its not that, could be the cam sensor.

Good Luck !

Please give me a FixYa rating.

Hit pothole real bad no damage to car checked all fuses battery it's self has spark but car is unresponsive when I try to turn it on what do I do now jaguar xk8 convertible 1998


In the 1999 Jaguar xj8 there is a fuel cutoff switch on the passenger side right hand panel to the right of the feet. Reach over the top rear of the small panel and find a soft flexible membrane on the top of the switch and press it until it clicks.if that doesnt work,there is a fuel pump relay in the trunk fusebox that might be the problem. 1998 Jaguar XK8 fuel safety shutoff Bing images

I have no power going to the fuel pump


one thing to check is the inertia switch. it kills power to the fuel pump in case of an accident, or sometimes a large pothole. it can be reset once you locate it.

Hit a hard pothole with 2003 Jeep grand cherokee laredo. Immediately stopped. Fuel pump inertia switch?


Never heard of this switch in the fuelpump circuit. Remove the fuel cap and listen if you can hear the pump when you switch ignition on. The pump will run for 3 seconds when you don't start. Hitting the pothole can have dislodged many things, from relays and connectors to a line.

How to reset fuel shut off 2000 pontiac montana


There is not a resetable fuel cut off switch on your vehicle. Ford is the only manufacturer that uses these.

If you do not think you have any fuel pressure that you will need to check for power to the fuel pump. If you hit the dog on the drivers side you may have damaged the wireing harness to the fuel pump.

Fuel safety shut off location


The Cobalt does not have a fuel shutoff, or Inertia Switch, so there is no reset button. Why are you looking for this? Are you having fuel problems?

1996 ford escort died when i was driving right after i went over a small pot hole and will not start. It was low on gas..could iy be the fuel filter


Ford vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump cut off switch that will shut power to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. By hitting the pothole, there was probably enough "force" making the switch mistakenly shut off the fuel pump. The switch should be located in the trunk either on the left or right side. Locate the switch and press the reset button. If it clicks when pressed, then the switch was activated. Try starting the car. If it starts, then that was the problem. I own a 1997 Ford Escort and the same thing happened to me...the pothole caused enough "force" thereby the switch took it as an impact. I hope this helps you out.

if fuel is being delivered,look for an ignition problem (module,relay,distributor). you need 3 things to fire up an engine 1 compression 2 fuel 3 spark

View safety shut-off switch


The button is located between the passenger door and passenger seat near the door post. You can't miss it. Its larger than a quarter and has a black rubber boot covering it.

I have a 2000 Leganza and i hit a large pothole which immediately caused the car to shut down! is there a safety swith or reset on the fuel system? what else might have caused this? Thanks Jim


just like a ford truck it has a relay switch to shut down the fuel when it has a hard impact to lessen the possability of a fire. I am not sure where it is located but you should be able to find it in your owners manual
