look under floor mat in trunk and you will find a small door above the fuel tank. Open this door and using a slotted screwdriver turn the valve head 90 degrees clockwise or 1/4 turn. Then pump gas pedal 4 times, click your heels and turn ignition key.

Where is the reset button for the emergency shut off valve for the gas line

After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.


If your vehicle is a wagon, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located behind the service panel on the right side of the cargo area.

Use the following procedure to reset the fuel pump shut-off switch.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in on the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON 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


Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this).

If I am parked on a slight incline and open the trunk, the trunk opens, then immediately fall shut.

Trunk has 1 or 2 gas charged struts that hold it up.
They do wear out over time , and are replaceable.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire, 2200 4cyl. My neice ran in the ditch about 30 mph and damaged the radiator. I replaced the radiator and the car will not start. I pullled a plug wire and it has spark, pulled...

Look for the crash sensor that shuts off the fuel pump, usually located in a hard to reach spot in the trunk, push to reset it. Check your owners manual, it will tell you where if you can't locate it by sight.

1985 Mercedes 300D vacuum problem

Hello, Your vacuum was probably shut off at the yellow valves located near the accelerator shaft at the firewall. Lines from these valves supply vacuum to the door lock system and storage tank. If the engine would not shut off with these connected. one or more of the door lock servo's are leaking. You have a servo in each door, one on the gas lid and one controls the trunk lock. You can pull up the front floor mats and use a hand held vacuum tester to start checking to see which servo is leaking.
As far as your vent problem, you problem have a bad climate control servo or switchover valve.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241
