The switch is located passenger side behind kick panel (in front of door on the floor) It is a electrical plug connector. You push in the tab and pull the connector out. basically exactly what luke already stated just adding a little more detail.

The reset switch is located at the front "a" pillar near where your foot would kick, sometimes called the kick panel for this reason.....the switch is called an inertia switch becuase it shuts off the fuel in the event of a collision, now im from australia, where the driver sits on the right and the inertia switch is on the left, it is behind the plastic panel, be careful not to break as you bend it back,,,,,,,good luck

Is there a fuel pump reset switch on a 1996 chev s10 and if so, where is it located?


the only manufacturer that uses an intertia switch for the fuel pump is Ford. This style of switch [needs to be reset after a collision by pressing a button.

GM does not use this type of system to stop the fuel pump.

If you know what your missing I can help you further (not power to the pump, power to the pump, low fuel pressure, etc)

Where is the fuel pump?


the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. under the hood in black box[main fuse and relay panel] before you replace the pump, i suggest that you check fuel pump relay. or have you been hit from rear? you may need to reset the fuel pump shut off switch. you will find the reset switch in rear of car, look for a pop out panel on the left hand side when you open the trunk. push the switch in [like a reset switch for old t.v. push it in and then try to start the car before you replace the fuel pump please! but if you know for sure that the fuel pumps bad, drain all the gas out before dropping the gas tank. this will save you alot of trouble. also disconnect the positive cable from battery before you do anything!!!!!! hope this helps, merry christmas. and as always,if you need further assistance, please repost your question and an expert will be happy to assist.

Where reset switch for fuel pump is located


I know there is not one on the 96 models. I fought a fuiel pump related issue on our 96. There are several sensors that must be working before the fuel pump will run. Start with the crankshaft sensor, then look at the camshaft sensor, finally there is a relay that actually runs the fuel pump. The relay should be under the hood with the fuses.

Dodge dosen't use reset switches on the fuel pump circuit. The only company I know of that does is Ford and Ford companies like Mazda and Jaguar.

Hope helps.
