Need to find fuel pump shut off switch for 1991 ford probe 3.0

The car died on wife. It has new battery. It turns over but acts as if it is getting no gas but has over 1/2 tank. Could it be fuses or switch? And where is switch for shut off? Any other suggestions?

    Same problem, The fuel cutoff switch does not seem to be tripped, pushing the reset does not click or respond in any way. The

    'fuel cutout warning light comes on when the ignition is on but the owners manual seems to say that it always comes on (I presume that it must go off when the engine starts if this is the case it is not of much use to me) The car has not been driven for 3-4 months so I thought that there might be water in the gas tank , I added fuel dryer fluid and more fresh gas Doesn't help. Where is the fuel filter located? Might be clogged. The problem is obviously that the engine is not getting fuel.

    I don't have a service manual. So I don't know where the fuel pump is located or the associated fuse.

It will be located in the trunk. A red push button switch. More than likely the problem is a fuel pump relay or bad fuel pump.

1989 Ford Probe engine stalls. Will run intermittent and run up to 5k RPM...then die. I hear fuel relay click under dash (replaced w/fuel pump, inertia switch & fuel rail regulator). Wiring? Air hose...


First, the power relay turns on engine computer. Then the engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay which in turn, turns on the fuel pmp for 5 seconds, unless the engine is running. If you have a new pump, check for spark right after it dies next time.

It shouldn't have anything to do with it. The fuel pump relay doesn't activate without the key being turned to the on or start positions so i can't be draining your battery.

On a 1991 F-150 the Fuel Shut Off Switch is located on the left and above where the steering column passes through the floorboard.

1. Turn the Key in the ignition to OFF.
2. Push the Red Reset Button on the Fuel Pump Shut Off Switch
Down.
3. Turn the ignition Key ON for a few seconds, Then turn it OFF,
Now try to start it.

Just bought 1991 Ford Probe lx v6 won't start


If you have spark and fuel (either via the injectors or spraying fluid into the intake), and still no evidence of firing, it suggests your valvetrain may not be working. If the valves can't open, the fuel cant get into the cylinder.

Do (or have done) a compression test. You may have a broken timing belt/chain.

93 Ford Probe won't start, possible fuel pump?


Fuel filters are cheap (less than $20.00 for the premium filter at Napa) and easy. If you've never changed it, you should do it anyway. It would at least make sure that it's not the filter if the problem still exists. On the bonus, you've got a new fuel filter.

1995 Ford Probe sputtering, dying. Won't start now.


This to me sounds like it could be the fuel pump but first I would check the simpler solution and make sure your alternator is good because if your started turns over fine but the car wont start the next part to check would be for me the alternator.
