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.

I have a 1995 ford taurus it will turn over but wont stay running i think it's the fuel pump shut off switch?


There is a shutoff switch in the trunk. You can reset it by hand. It is designed to shut off fuel in an accident, but a good jolt on the road will engage it.
