    Hi Charles - I'm not aware of a switch for Toyota. Only Ford products have an inertia switch for the fuel system.

SOURCE: the fuel cutoff switch appears to be jammed or not able to manual

It is not tripped if the red button is pushed down. The switch might just be defective. How many wires are going to the switch? And what colors are they?

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump shutoff switch located on a 1996 chevy silverado 1500 located

Should be on the passenger side kickplate below the glovebox and to the right. You may have to remove the plastic panel to access it or look for a small hole in it and feel around for the button

just press the button to reset it. Per your owner manual. Should only trip in an accident.

WHen you turn on the key, can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds. The pump is in the fuel tank. listen there while someone turns the key on. report back.

SOURCE: fuel shutoff switch switch location on a 1988 ford

The fuel pump inertia switch that shuts off the pump in the case of an accident or impact is located under the right side of dash I have also
found them behind the right kick panel. There is also a fuel pump
shutoff relay under the hood on the left firewall, and a relay on the
right fender apron behind a plastic cover. Hope this helps.

No power to fuel pump relay


There is an emergency fuel pump safety shutoff in case of an accident that will automatically shut fuel pump off so fuel does not keep pumping out at the scene of a crash. The reset button is usually in the trunk depending on what vehicle you have. Your manual will identify location for you.

I'm not familiar with JAG but MOST cars have a switch in the front and the back that is called a fuel shutoff switch. I am going to say you may have bumped the switch and it shut off the fuel pump. The switch on most cars is located under the bumper area or around the grill area. Your best bet is to go to the local auto parts store and buy a repair manual for your car and start looking the the electrical schematic section to locate where the Fuel shutoff switch is located.

Changed fuel pump i put a new battery in changed fuel relay switch and still wont start spryed startin fluid in air hose it will crank and imediatley die? what do i do i have tried everything people...


is the security light flashing when the key is turned on? if so you have a security issue and not a fuel pump problem. the ECM shuts off the fuel injectors so the car won't start. the ignition fire is still good so the car runs on starting fluid. check the light and then email me with more info.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.
  2. Remove two screws retaining inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  3. Disconnect wiring harness connector from inertia fuel shutoff switch and remove inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.
