No, Chrysler does not use an inertia fuel shutoff switch like ford. There is nothing resettable or anything like that with the fuel system. You can disable it by pulling the ASD relay or fuel pump relay/fuse. If you have a problem, you can check your relays and swap them around to see if that solves your issue.

Hope this helps!

Hi... NO dodge don't use a Inertia fuel shutdown switch.
If you Have no fuel at the Injector, Check the fuel pump fuse and relay.
Or with a Test light check if there Power to the Fuel pump Connector.
To see if the pump work or not.

I hope this help on your question.. Thank you for use fixya....

If this is turning over and sounding like it is not getting gas and with what you state as checked out I would go next to the fuel relay. If you ran out of gas you will need to reset the fuel safety shut off. Still may have to do that anyway. Check your manual for the location of this switch.
