Do you mean the crash cutoff switch?? If so bypass it and test if engine keeps running then replace it. Hope this helps, let me know.

'93 Ford Probe Fuel Pump Collision Switch released

You must add at least three gallons of gas/petrol so the electric pump will prime properly. Be aware that when you run out of fuel/petrol you can damage the pump, the tiny fuel tank mounted pump requires the fuel it runs in for cooling and lubrication, so when you run out of gas it is damaged to some degree, this shortens the life of the pump and in some cases on high mileage cars (or cars that are run out of gas on a regular basis) the pump may not restart. The reset fuel pump button is only activated by a vehicle crash exceeding 3 times the force of gravity, so running out of fuel doesn't trip that switch.

The gas tank gets to a quarter tank and the car stops also done came across the mileage

well the fuel gauge is wrong for sure which usually results in the float on the fuel pump being bent when put back in by technician or someone who is not careful when they put it back in for sure happens all the time the gauge says one thing but its out of gas.but if you have not had fuel pump put then when the fuel levels gets low the pump gets hot and kicks the reset thus shutting the fuel pump.and the on board fuel miles to empty are never correct usually they will run 10 to 15 miles after the miles 0 anyway they are almost never correct replacement of the float should remedy the problem but unfortunately the assembly has to be changed fuel pump and all cause it all one.

Just got my 2000 VW New Beetle with 3/4 tank of gas. Drove it 36 miles and its below 1/2 tank. Could it be the gas that they put in? Or something wrong with the car itself?

On just about every vehicle I have ever seen, the fuel gauge will move faster from 1/2 to 1/4 (I never let a tank run past 1/4. Bad for the fuel pump) than from full to 3/4 or 3/4 to 1/2.
Do a mileage check. Fill the tank until the pump stops, reset your trip or note your odometer miles. Dive a few days or a number of miles. Fill the tank again until the pump stops and not the amont it took to fill. Note the number of miles you put on and do the math.

1 thing is to make sure you have the right size fuel pump for your engine. A ****** put a 2.2 pump on my 2.5 as soon as this was fixed the gas smell stopped. a new carburator also might do the trick....unfortunately i have had to replace almost every part on my sundevil good luck with yours

We are fixing a crown vic to be a enduro car (racing on dirt track and crashes) we need to strip the whole car. we stripped the whole inside of the car and unplugged wires.. the fuel pump would not come on...

I know I have taken the fuel line off of cars to pump fuel out of tank and it only pumps soon as you turn key on for a couple seconds. And while your cranking it. But keeps pumping while it is running, I think it is the relay that keeps it running. Not positive. Did you hook it up the same as it was? How about the fuel pump cuttoff switch? If you hooked it up to part of the system, like the ignition, but it isnt connected to the computer through another wire that turns the relay on while it is running, then that may be it? Just trying to help. But I know if your racing You should have some sort of cuttoff on it just in case some hatter slams you into the wall and blow up. lol Good luck and have fun

Could the fuel reset button cause me to use a lot of gas

No, the fuel pump inertia switch only stops the fuel pump from working. If the fuel pump is working and the engine runs then the inertia switch is working as it should. It has nothing to do with gas mileage. Make sure your air filter is clean, and all cylinders are firing properly. If the plugs and plug wires have over 75,000 miles on them, then replace them. Also replace the fuel filter every 50,000 miles.

Inside the cabin strong gas smell after fill up for approx 50 miles. 2003 Honda Odyssey 85k miles.

do you have the same fuel economy as before or does you gas last less miles than before. if you can smell gas whether the car is running or NOT that means you have a leak in your fuel system if it was not a leak, you would not smell it when not running . first thing is check under vehicle after overnight parking and see if there is fuel on the ground if there is , this will give you a starting point where to look for gas leak. Plugged, dirty or poorly connected fuel injector; Leaking fuel filter or fuel filter connections; Punctured or damaged fuel tank; Loose or poorly connected fuel pump; Gas in gas can in trunk.

Fuel pump irregularity

Sounds to me like you got a faulty pump. To be sure, put a fuel pressure gauge on the engine and see if the pressure drops.
