Fuel Safety Shut Off Switch --- is only on Ford Products
& only opens in a serious accident,so diagnose the circuit
that blows the fuse
Don't keep replacing it,that's silly
Diagnose the fuel system if you know how ,have the proper
knowledge & test equipment & possibly wiring diagrams,
otherwise take to a repair shop & explain

Fuel pump relay sound bad. Under the hood in the fuse box is the location of the relay. Look under the cover for the diagram to locate it faster. Hope this helps. Please keep me posted. Good luck

SOURCE: 2001 S-10, Blowing "ECM Batt" fuse after running for about 30 min

that fuse feeds power to fuel pump relay circuit that feeds pump could be defective pump,or damaged circuit wires that shorts out! and not a good idea to put higher fuse in circuit could cause more damage to circuit! but i know when your stuck, u do what it takes,so inspect circuit related to fuse,

SOURCE: i have a 1990bmw 325i. i turned the car off one

im not 100% sure if this vehicle has onebut some cars have a neutral safety switch. My jeep had one go bad. If you shut it off, it wouldnt start back up, you had to wait about 45 minutes. Sometime it would start it placed in neutral.

At times it justs starts to sputter and run rough and then die

hello Dennis. (no miles stated)
what engine, 4.0L I6 2.5L? I4
ever tuned it up? all spark and filters, the 60k mile, ever?
this post is random engine stalls?
so does it stall hot or cold or both
does it stall moving, right foot planted, cruisng
or only parked, or only as you come to a stop
do dash lamps/gauges or? go out before the stall? (look)
CEL off running.. ok, no DTCs stored if USA car. is it?

my guess is this stall can happen hot or cold engine.
location not in klondike (location not stated, so wild guess.)
hot stalls, ?
1 lets say coming to a stop. is very common EGR sticking open
2 never tuned up, ever or even the last decade?
3: ISC/iIAC sticking closed, jeeps love to do that any I4 , its a big issue. the idle stepper motor cone gets gummed up, clean it.
i clean both my jeeps, I4 ISC like 100 times since 1988.
4: bad TPS. but usually it throws DTC'S for this. if driven hard)

some I6' have no EGR valve. PCM has no EGR pins.!
you can monitor DC power at the CIG lighter, to see if power drops
at stall, easy, 13.3v to 15v is normal or ALT system is dead..

make sure the Automatic shut down relay is not being shut down
by PCM (DB/YL wire) goes to 12v is shut down, 0v is not.
the PCM can cut the ASDR for may reasons, oil pressure or battery overheat,? many, best it to find out of this RELAY is dropping EFI
off LINE. IT can .

lets do stalls.
i see tachometer drop below 800 RPM hot .
i try to save the stall, ISC stuck closed, and my right foot
opens throttle instictively and i save the stall.
easy, that is loss of air. see why?
on mine the stupid, ISC/.IAC works like this
the PCM remembers to ISC positions (stepper)
one cold start and one hot start (a secret i learned)
it then looks at water temps and guess (math) at a best start position.
if it used hot ISC for a COLD start the engine will want to flood due
to valve mostly closed, from last hot shut down,.
so floods, use right foot 10% ,

so i cant comment on what it might be until you state (displacement)
the engine temps. at fail
the operational mode, parked, stopping or between 5speed mt shifts.
or what?
if it fails parked in drive way.
or only moving or only coasting.
stalls on the fly?

im online at and there are 16pages for PCM only.

this car the PCM controls the Alternator, (a software reg)

now another tack.
the car in usa, as OBD2, i connect my scan tool
and log, i drive and log. car stalls
i drive home ,play back my logs, and bingo
i see what happens at the stall, all sitting at my desk.
warm and dry.
lost comms,?. is DC power lost.
Pending DTCS
real live DTCS
some DTCS auto clear, at die.
some PCMs will reset the CKP or CMP sensor or spark failures.
so can only be seen live. (watching, 1 more secret)

now Bar stool answsers (any EFI car)
ever tune it up, ever do the 60K>? if not why not now?
lost spark, see if spark is being lost at stall, (at all plugs)
bad fueling, (too high or low fuel pressure at stall)
loss of air (ISC/IAC failed)
EGR (if there) stuck wide open,

if the engine runs perfect at most times, its probably ok
so is bad spark or fuel
spark is first. but not if never tuned up.
fueling is last to check , as PCM cuts fuel with spark failure sensed.
bad fueling can be bad injection or total loss of air supple , at idle.

I am having periodic problems with my truck stalling when I go to shift down to first when coming to a stop. It just stalls out then won't start & floods. After letting it sit for 15 - 20 min it...

It is possible that it is coincidence. Check if after revving it would stall after when your truck is in neutral or in park. This is to isolate the problem if it is the engine when in load or the transmission.

Is this a manual transmission? If there are shifting issues it may be the clutch. Other than that have the fuel pressure tested. The fuel regulator may be faulty or there are leaks or bad lines on the vacuum hoses.

2000 Celica GT-S. Engine 'bucking' anywhere from idle to wot

locate the mass air flow sensor. it's located inline with the air intake. it should be right after the air filter. disconnect the plug and see if the car runs better. also, when tapping on it lightly on the sensor with a screwdiver handle and the engine skips, could also indicate a bad sensor. these sensors will not always set the check engine light. suspecting the fuel system is also a possibility

I bought a 2000 Mustang GT with 12,000 original miles. It came from a collections and we use it for crusing once a month or so. Recently I was driving it and after I shifted into second gear, the engine...

I have a 2000 gt that sits for long periods of time and I have to keep it on a battery maintainer or it goes dead. It's caused by parasitic loads. (radio clock, alarm system etc.)
Sounds like a fuel delivery problem?
You may want to check the fuel system reset, it's located in the trunk on the drivers side behind the carpet. I've had to reset mine before because the car wouldn't start after a long period of storage.
If that dosen't solve the problem, you'll have to confirm you're getting fuel to the injectors, all you have to do is connect a pressure gauge to the schrader valve which is located on the front of the left fuel rail.
If you're not getting fuel it may be the electric fuel pump.

1994 chev. S10 4.3

There is a sensor device, on the right side of the engine block near the front, for the oil pressure that has two parts to it. It is used to control the oil pressure guage on the dash as well as having a switch which has wiring going to the Electronic Control Module, and this ECM input has a software time-out safety feature. After the engine is started, if the indicated oil pressure goes too low or is lost, the voltage to the fuel pump is shut off. This is desired in the case of a crash. This event will cause the engine to quit. On my manual transmission vehicle the ECM will reset if the ignition is turned off for a couple of seconds. It sounds like this oil pressure (aka sending unit) sensor is not working properly, causing the fuel pump power to be removed.....(probably intermittently). About $20 and a few minutes to change if you can get your hands down in there.
