G.M.s do not have a reset button.You will have to see if your getting fuel or spark at the plugs.What you can do if you don`t have a fuel pressure tester is spray carb.cleaner into the throttle body and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds.If it does then it is more than likely the fuel pump.If not then check to see if you are getting spark at the spark plugs.Make sure and check more than one plug.If no spark then check cap and rotor.If those are good then check to see where you could be loosing spark at the ignition coil or the module.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2000 explorer won't start cranks OK, drove it to the store with no problems got back in won't turn over to start.

Try some starting fluid, if it wants to run then you need to check the Inertia switch. The location of this switch is behind the passengers foot kickpanel.

There is a Reset button that you push and it will reconnect the fuelpump. Please rate my info. You can try the Reset without testing with starting fluid but the fluid verifies fuel starvation as the problem.

I hit a deer with the front of my 1993 splash and it shut off and wont start now

You will need to reset the fuel shut of switch, this is setup to shut fuel off in a crash or impact, all you need to do is locate it and push the button down, the button is located on the top of the switch and use finger to push it and then restart the will need to look on both sides of the truck, start at the driverside left kick panel this is the panel that your left foot would hit if in the driver seat, its the side panel on the floor area check for a hole or look behind the panel if its not there look in the pass/side panel good luck, good day

My truck won t start tow guy mentioned of a kill switch in vehicle i also read about in manual almost seems as if no gas is passing

vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump circuit breaker,or 'crash switch' that shuts off fuel pump in case of an 'incident'. consult owners manual for exact location & procedure.usually a button is pressed to reset.

It will not start up and say running .I have to pump the gas to make it start up but it still shut off.I have already tune the truck up .It feels like a fuel problem.I was looking for the fuel pump...

The inertia / pressure switch should be located behind the passenger side kick panel. Once you find it, push down on the button, if it goes down, try to start the truck. If the button did not push down, lightly tap it with a small hammer or screwdirver just hard enough to trip it ( it will pop up,and you will hear it ), reset the button and do this 3-4 times then try to start. Sometimes a bit off dirt or whatever gets in there and blocks that contacts.

Does the electric fuel pump come on when you turn the key? It should make a buzzing noise for 3 seconds or so.
