Ford has that option only.. Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump operating. If not replace the engines oil pressure switch which runs the fuel pump upon turning the key to the on position. After the engines oil pressure is at operating normal oil pressure the computer shuts the circuit off the third wire from the oil pressure switch to off and
turns on the fuel pumps rehay to operate the pump.
I would replace both parts since the cost is inexpensive to purchase

No voltage to fuel pump 2002 saburban

vehicles have a safty device that kills the fuel pump in case of a roll-over accident so the fuel will not be poured on to the car and ignite. also, this fuel pump kill switch is used when you are going to remove the fuel pump to de-pressurize the fuel line by cranking the engine while the fuel pump safety switch is off. you can restore the power back to the fuel pump by resetting the fuel pump safety (kill) switch. some are located in the trunk, by the fender well, behind the carpet. some are located inside the kick panel where the front passenger sits. check your motor manuel for that vehicle or ask a parts person at the dealership for the location of the safety switch for the fuel pump.

Hello, Look in your trunk for a set of buttons on the side of the carpeted trunk. There should be a switch for the air-ride and close to it is a safety switch with a push button on it. You just press the button on the safety switch and it will reset. The safety switch is called an "Inertia" switch and when you get an impact, it cuts the power to the fuel pump to prevent fires.

Once in a while the switch will trip if a door or the trunk is slammed at just the right frequency to make the safety switch work. Nothing is broken, nothing to buy, just reset the switch.

I cant get power fuse back to my fuel pump the fuse is good what wrong

Check connection at oil pressure switch. The oil pressure switch is also a safety device that shuts off power to fuel pump incase if accident or rollover, Shut's fuel pump down when little to no oil pressure. If connection looks good, just replace oil pressure switch - they're inexpensive.

My jaguars its stoped

Look inside your trunk and there will be an opening cut in the side of the carpet. This will have a air suspension switch and a Inertia safety switch. The Inertia switch controls the fuel pump in case you get bumped or crash. Push the button on it for 3 seconds to reset this safety switch.

Second, if you have no lights or power to anything look at the battery connections. Their are dozens of things that can cause your problem, but I have given you the top two. Good Luck.

The fuel safety reset switch

Hello mwisterman11: I can help with your answer. GM does not use a inertia switch like Ford does. The fuel pump is controlled by a 20 amp fuel pump fuse, a fuel pump relay and the PCM. Look under the hood for the fuse box. Locate the fuse marked f/p-injr.This will be a yellow 20 amp.fuse. If it is ok locate the fuel pump relay in the same panel. Other then these two the fuel pump is controlled by the computer. If you crack a fuel line and turn the key on you should see fuel movement. Be sure to put a rag around the line to soak up the fuel. This will be a fire hazard.
Please rate the quality of the answer. This insures you received the correct requested. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger
