Most often times the fuelcut out switch is located in the trunk behind the felt on either fender wall, however sometimes depending on the model it also can be located under the drivers seat.

2008 impala cranks but won't start

Theres only two possibilities why a car doesnt start...its not getting fuel or fire. Start by turning the key to the First click before trying to crank it up. Leave the key in that position and lean your ear toward the rear or the vehicle before the driverside rear tire and listen for a faint humming sound. If, you hear this sound, your getting fuel (that would be your fuel pump). That would me your not getting fire... check plugs and wires for loose fittingor cracks and replace

Can a rear in collission cause a car to shut down

Yes it can. There is a fuel pump shut down switch that interrupts the power to the fuel pump. When you are hit in a crash, it shuts down the gas to avoid a fire if there is a leak.

No firing coming through the coil and fuel pump is not working both are related

It suggest checking the fuse and relay to the fuel pump. You might consider changing the coil. on a 6 cyl 4.0 or 4.7 the replacement part at PEP Boys should be E 239 BDW. About $130.00 bucks. Good luck Vicky.

When i hit a bump my 95 grand cherokee shudders but only when i'm only pressing the gas

your fuel pump is in the gas tank in the rear of the truck. It sounds like it could be a loose connection on the fuel pump sending unit. That's ware I would start looking at first. If that's not it you need to have pressure test done on the fuel pump. If you are having trouble starting the truck every now and then, this a good sign your fuel pump is starting to go out. Good luck!

Where is the fuel pump located and what type of problems would this cause? on an 03 kia spectra

most newer cars it is located inside the fuel tank generaly when a fuel pump goes out its just done no more running occasionally, you will get a fuel pump with a short in its wiring and it will intermitantly not run such as i hit a bump it quit and later on it started and ran until the car was jostled again and once again quit this on is rare, but a possibility to check your fuel pump with no tools, open your fuel cap and listen carfully while someone turns the key to the on position when the key hits the on position you should hear a buzzing for about 3 seconds, if you hear this the fuel pump is working if you dont you may have a dead fuel pump good luck

I was driving into town, stopped at the stop sign at the end of my street, and when I hit the gas off the stop sign, the truck died. After 10 minutes or so of trying to start the truck, it fired up. Every...

It still could be the fuel pump. Sometimes they don't just quit outright. Go to the vehicle. Reach through the open driver's side window. Turn the key forward to the run position. Listen toward the rear of the vehicle for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a humming noise that should last a couple seconds and stop. If you don't hear anything it's your fuel pump.
