Most probably a fault in the switch, remove the light and the wires, use a muti meter on the terminals and move the switch to see if it is working, if not replace the switch

Generally you will turn the key counterclockwise to the lock position. This will shut off the vehicle. If you have a push button start try pushing the start button.

If you are referring to a dome light try pressing up un it or look for an on off switch. Radios can generally be turned off by Turing the volume knob counterclockwise, pushing the power button, or pressing a power button.

Hope that helps.

My 5litre 1997 vs commadore drives for about ten minuites then the engine light comes on and the ignition cuts restarts after this a problem with my immobiliser and how do i deactivate it?

No, it's not an immobilizer problem - an immobilizer would simply cut the power to the ECM or lock it from the start and the security light (not the engine one) will flash (not remain permanently lit). BTW the immobilizer reset works for 120 minutes, not 10.
No, you have a bad contact in the wiring of the engine : the engine heats up, the contact's metal parts expand and break contact so the sensor powered by that contact shuts down and the ECM detects that as a fault and shuts down the engine. Have the error codes read, it will tell you which is the faulty sensor - find it and fix its contacts.

2002 Escort wont start after crash. No logical reason. Is there resets or sensors?

There is a fuel shut-off switch that stops the flow of fuel in an accident to prevent the occupants from becoming crispy critters. I believe it is in the trunk on Fords. Just push the button in to allow fuel to get to the engine. I'll check to see if I can find the exact location. Back in a few minutes.

A little bright light is now on on the dashboard which reads "power." It is unclear to me what that means. I don't have a manual.

This is the overdrive switch. From what I understand this switch can be shut off when you do not need power to climb ect.
When you shut off the switch you resume normal drive operation with better fuel economy.
If you have no control over when this light comes on you will need to have a OBD II reader plugged in to check for codes.

The theft system light comes on in my 99 chevy malibu how do i fix it

On line there are instructions for cutting the anti-theft wire. Very easy to do, but you have to leave car run while you do it. You have to pop radio out and it is a yellow wire behind it. I cut 3 different yellow wires and re-taped them until I found it. Anti-theft light will always stay and never shut off. I did this 4 months ago, and so happy that I did. Very easy fix.

It will not start /what does fuelcutoff mean

all fords come with a fuel shut off switch, when cars get older they seem to be a little more tempromental. If you look in your manual under fuel shut off switch it will tell you where it is located in your car, all you need to do is reset it by pushing the button and you should be ok.

This switch is made to cut the fuel from going to the engine when in an accident. I don't know exactly where it is on your model but i believe it is in your trunk.
