I have seen a flat tire cause those switches to trip. Usually on the passenger floorboard kickpanel or in the trunk on the sidewall. Take gascap off and have someone turn ignition switch on several times without starting while you listen for the pumps operation down the filler-neck. If no sound expect the switch is tripped or fuse blown or bad pump.

I have a 2006 ford f350 and the fuel pump isnt working is there a shutoff switch


Yes. The switch is usually located around the passengers kickpanel. There should be an access hole to press the button on the switch. Sometimes the part is just above the carpet and sometimes you have to remove the kickpanel. If you are unable to find this switch on the passengers side,then look on the drivers side kickpanel.

Under the hood is a Powerbox. The shutoff switch (inertia switch) gets its power from the Fuel pump Relay after the Ignition is turned on. If resetting the shutoff switch does not help, your fuel pump Relay may be bad. On some Ford models, the horn Relay is the same Relay used for the fuel pump. This would allow you to swap and test before buying a new Relay.

What is the fuel symbol for in the pass. side floorboard of my 01 focus


FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shutoff switch may have been activated. The shutoff switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, remove the cover plug in the trim and reset the fuel pump shutoff switch by pushing in the button on the switch.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON/RUN 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.

The fuel pump shutoff switch is located in the passenger's foot well, behind the kick panel. The reset button is accessible through the recess in the kick panel.

Replace the cover plug in trim after reset procedure.

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.

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

1999 lincoln fuel pump


My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?
