2001 Mitsubishi Montero Limited - Where is the inertia switch or fuel pump shut off switch located?

I know this may be a long shot, but I am trying to find where the inertia switch or fuel pump shut off switch is located on my Montero. The owners manual is in the Montero which happens to be broken down on the side of the road 30 minutes away so I don't have access to it right now. I have read through a lot of forums and cant find a direct answer.

No Inertia switch on Saturns! Check Fuel Pump Fuse Or Fuel Pump!

SOURCE: low gas pressure in 96 sunfire.

You have mentioned that you replaced the O2 sensor. The oxygen sensor is completely ignored by the engine computer while the car is starting, and doesn't come into play at all until the engine warms up completely. Are you sure you have a fuel pressure problem? If so, replacing the O2 sensor would not have any affect.

To be sure you have a fuel pressure problem, you need to measure it. This car does not have a fuel pressure test port, so you need an inline fuel pressure test gauge. To test the pressure, connect an in-line gauge and switch your ignition switch to the "run" position. (Do not start the engine.) The fuel pump should run for two seconds. During this time when the engine is not running, you should have between 41 and 47 PSI of fuel pressure. If you start the engine, the fuel pressure should drop somewhat at idle (maybe somewhere closer to 28-35 PSI). Fuel pressure is regulated according to intake manifold vacuum, so at idle, it should be fairly low, while at higher throttle settings, it should be higher.

From what I gather, your car cranks for a long time before starting. If you suspect low fuel pressure, a defective fuel pump relay could cause that condition. The relay is located in a relay/fuse box under the hood on the driver's side of the car. If the relay fails, the fuel pump can still be energized by the engine oil pressure switch. This switch closes when engine oil pressure reaches ~4PSI. If your engine is not producing 4PSI of oil pressure while cranking, or if it takes a while to reach 4PSI, that would explain your problem.

2001 montero limited randomly wont start after setting a while starts fine


Check your gas cap and fuel pump. If you can start it after loosening the cap and putting it back on, your fuel pump is starting to die. It can't pull the gas out of the tank. When you release the cap, you let air in and release the vacuum in the tank.

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.

mcdevito75 here, It could be slow fuel delivery to the engine, Have your shop change the gas filter and check the fuel pump pressure.
