Ford focus fuel pump not working

There should be a reset button on a part called an Inertia switch. This switch is located behind the front kick panels or in the trunk.

The Inertia switch is a safety switch used to prevent fires after a collision. But sometimes if the right Frequency is generated by closing a door, hood, or trunklid the switch will activate. Then power is cut off from the fuelpump.

Fuel pump not running

You will find a reset button on the Inertia switch. The Inertia switch may be in the trunk or behind the kick panels of the front seat floorboards.

The Inertia switch is a safety device which cuts off the power to the fuel pump after a bump or collision. If closing a door or trunklid hits the right frequency, the switch will cut the power. Just reset it.

Which location in the car is the fuel cut off switch

2000 BMW 3 Series is not equipped with a fuel cut off switch. The fuel pump is powered by the fuel pump relay, which is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (or, as BMW calls it - the Digital Motor Electronics Control Unit "DMECU").

The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the passenger's foot well behind the kick panel. Depress the button to reset, you will hear a click if it is the problem as it resets. it is only triggered by a collision exceeding 3 G's.

Where is the fuel cut off switch for f 150 89 pick up

I think ( if I remember correctly) up by brake pedal on firewall area, or maybe behind kick panel on passenger side by right foot. Let me know if not, I'll dig a little if not.

I want to make sure the fuel pump on my 2000 bmw 323i is shot...

Check your fuel pump relay and replace fuel filter. Check at fuel rail to see if you have pressure built up with key in ON position not running
