Where is fuel pump switch located


THEY ARE USUALLY LOCATED IN THE TRUNK, SOMETIMES BEHIND THE SIDE PANEL.(not sure what side on your car, but check both sides, they are usually on the passenger side, but not positive on your saturn) IT WILL HAVE A RED (usually red) RESET SWITCH, SOMTIMES THEY DO GO BAD, BUT IF THE CAR HAS BEEN IN A WRECK, OR EVEN SLIGHTLY "BUMPED" IT CAN TRIGGER THE FUEL TO STOP, AS IT IS A SAFETY FEATURE FOR WRECKS TO SHUT OFF THE FUEL.

Done a overall repaint on a 97 catera. It wasnt wrecked. Removed the bumper covers, hood, decklid, all lights and the mirrors (which required removing the inside door panels) dissconnected the batt. first...


some chey aka caddy cars and trucks have airbag sensors in the doors any time you see wires sheathed in yellow they are for air bags or sensers. be disconecting them it will trip the light in the dash. you can take to the dealer to be reset at 100 bucks roughly or look on ebay or google for companies the reset the control module. granted you have to take the module out of the car and ship it to them. but that is around 50 bucks. i have done both ways.

Reset fuel pump after a wreck


on some of the escorts, there is a red button, that is in the trunk area, located on the right upper side, this is a fuel pump reset button, it allows the fuel pump to activate, and pump the gas from the tank to your engine, i believe that the sysytem is designed to shut off the fuel in the event of an accident, so that is why it has to be reset. hope this information helps you out.

Fuel pump fuse?


You won't hear the fuel pump come on with the key switch because they are engineered to NOT pump unless the engine is running so that you don't set yourself and the world on fire if you get in a bad wreck. Some units fire with distributor pulses and ALL will have have a wreck reset device that you can not find so far.

Perhaps that is what was wrong with the first pump? The wreck reset device is inertia triggered to forever kill the fuel pump until manually reset or replaced, you MUST find it where ever it is. It might have been damaged electrically by the first pump? You possibly have a computer failsafe in operation preventing you from starting your engine until the RESET device is reset properly?
