95 Ford Taurus wagon 3.0. bumped in the rear and car died immediatly. Cant find the enertia switch. Found some kind of black box inside the drivers side rear quarter panel, but it has no reset swetch.



The emergency shut-off, fuel reset, or inertia switch - all referring to the same thing - is typically located in the back right corner of the vehicle.

Sedan: Open trunk lid, look to right side near fuel filler port, pull back the trunk liner to expose the switch.

Wagon: Open hatch, look to right side near fuel filler port, open access panel.

Recessed into the top of the switch is a red button. If tripped, then push down until it resets, or clicks back into the on position.

After replacing the front bumper cover and rt h/l, the car cranks but wont start. the car was in a minor accident but ran fine until after we repaired it. we must be overlooking something, a sensor,...


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.

Won't start


Some cars have an inertial shut-off switch for the electric fuel pump. That switch is sensitive to impact and is designed to shut off the fuel pump in case of collision.

There is nothing wrong with the Inertia Fuel Shut Off Switch

It is down & closed, as it should be & you haven't been in an accident,forget it

What are you missing?

Fuel,Spark, MAF

Have to start testing, if the starter turns the engine over

94 Mercury sable does not start. had the battery and starter checked. Fuel pump is engaging, and just changed the fuel filter. Any ideas?


if fuel is being delivered,look for an ignition problem (module,relay,distributor). you need 3 things to fire up an engine 1 compression 2 fuel 3 spark

I tryed to start my 1994 sable 3.0, and it is not


try having someone turn the ignition to the run position while listening for the fuel pump to turn on. It should make a humming sound then stop. If not then the fuel pump or relay is probably bad. Could be the fuel filter if the pump runs but the car won't start. Do you also get a no spark condition? If so then ignition module is strong possibility of problem. Good luck

Car will not kick over


your car does have a fuel pump shut off switch. You can check your owner's manual. I found a copy of it online and they say it's on the right side of your trunk behind one of the service panels. the following info is right from the Ford manual.

Use the following procedure to reset the fuel pump shut-off switch.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by
pushing down on the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and
return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.

Lastly, start you car up as normal. If it still doesn't start, don't put stress on your starter, turn the key on and off slowly a few times, then try starting it again. If this doesn't work, something else may be going on.
