Where is fuel shut off relay switch on a 2004 Chevy Aveo it won't start after minor accident

Doesn't have a inertia fuel shut off switch ! An the fuel pump relay wouldn't have anything to do with it because of an accident . Check out video on youtube crank's but doesn't start an run > I'm assuming that when you turn the key to the start position the engine spins but doesn't start an run ? Check for spark to spark plug's , buy a fuel pressure gauge an test for fuel . Video's on youtube for that also .

Where is the shut off switch on fuel pump located

Were you in a accident? No. Then hit the tank in the middle. If it starts, replace the fuel pump. Make sure you have gas also. In thirty years, I have never replace an inertia switch. I've reset a few, from accidents though.

You likely tripped the Fuel Shut-Off Inertia Switch.
The inertia switch is located behind the trim on the right-hand
side of the vehicle, forward of the front door post, below the
fascia. Pull open the small panel in the trim to reset the switch.
Resetting the switch
To avoid the possibility of fire or personal injury, do not
reset the inertia switch if you see or smell fuel.
If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the inertia switch as follows:
Press the button!
If the switch was activated by the accident, you should feel it "click" when you reset it by pushing it.

Happy Motoring!

How to open compartment fuel switch reset 2005 ford fivehundred

There is nothing wrong with the fuel safety
shut off switch

It is only on ford products & there in case you
were in a very bad accident it would open &
shut off the fuel pump

You could be in an accident & that doesn't
mean it will work of the impact doesn't trigger
the switch

You listen for the fuel pump while cycling the ignition key
You check fuel pressure with a gauge on engine fuel rail
You can test as well as turn on fuel pump at the relay

Think you need a repair shop for what ever the problem is

I got in an accident and now the car won't start. is there a fuel safety reset switch somewhere?

Ok neither one have you have owned a fiero, there is no fuse box under either hood, and the ecm is in the center console! The fuel pump is run by the ecm and the fuel pressure switch to check the fuel pump apply 12 volts to the aldl connector inside your center console. all you have to do is take the little black cover off of the console where the cigar lighter is at. There are only 4 wires its the one that is farthest away from all the others. If you hear the fuel pump turn on then the fuel pressure switch is probably the culprit. I would get some schematics and check wires though. Odds are since it was in an accident there are probably some screwed up wires.

Whats the purpose of fuel shut off 94 mazda progete

The emergency fuel shut off switch is present to prevent gas fires in the event of an accident. It is an impact switch and disengages power to the pump after an accident. There has been situations where an accident caused fuel lines to break, the key was still supplying power to the pump, and a car fire resulted. This switch prevents such fires. Thanks and please rate.

2003 Cavalier, fuel problem after accident

there is no fuel pump cut off switch on this car, it is possible the fuel pump module was damaged from this accident, u will have to have the fuel pump circuit tested for faults before replacing the pump, don't guess, this is an expensive repair
