What shuts off fuel system when in wreck


This truck uses a high pressure fuel system, key must be on for the electric fuel pump, which is in the tank, to work. Fuel pump senses when pressure drops, so that it will shut off if there is full pressure, and engine not running. If there is lower pressure, such as a broken line, it will continue to pump, if the engine is running. If you're asking if it has a safety feature shutting it off in an accident, no it does not, except if the engine shuts off due to the accident, fuel pump will not work, unless key is turned off and then back on, and will then work for about 5 seconds and shut off, unless engine is started. If you're asking why the fuel pump doesn't work after an accident, it's most likely damaged, or a wire has been damaged, OR the computer maybe damaged (therefore telling it to turn on/off when key is on and engine running with key on and pressure is low, or at the right level to run the engine. Again, if you turn the key on and do not start the engine, fuel pump will work briefly for about 5 seconds to bring pressure up to where it can be started, then the fuel pump will work again when the engine is started (so the fuel pump isn't running with the engine off for very long.)

99 montero fuel pump relays


Fuel pump relays are designed to trigger the power from using the power system of the vehicle to a direct battery power connection. Relays save the sensitive power used accessories by not robbing the power from them and bypassing them to use the power right from the battery source.

For example, if a relay was not used for the pump, it would lower the idle on your car everytime it turned on. Having a relay allows the pump to run and not steal valuable voltage from the cars system. These fuel relays are also a safety device in case of a car accident. The car has shock sensors that react in a car accident and shut the fuel pumps off through the relays so the occupants do not burn in an accident. If these continued to run after an accident and fuel continued to be pumped at a high pressure rate, you can imagine what the consequences might be.

Relays make the route to the battery to run the item, more direct. Bypassing the cars needed power to run the vehicle.

Dodge ram fuel pump, Caused by frontal Accident?


this of course could have bent the fuel pump bracket inside the tank or damaged the wiring that supplies it power, stand by your guns, if it worked before the accident then it is accident related, I have had this kind of argument with a few insurance companies, and they always say no until u really pour it on, ask to speak to a supervisor, forget the little claims agent go over his head, it works, just be persistant..

Car won't start.


it sounds like you have to push your fuel cut off switch, the switch could under your hood or in by the dash somewhere.have a look at your owners manual it will be in there or you can ask your local dealer where the fuel cut switch is on your car.
