Question about 1991 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I reset the fuel cutoff switch in a 91 ford escort and it still won't start so I disconnected the battery for 15 minutes and it still won't start. What else can I try and would a bad switch or fuel relay be the issue?

Yes a bad fuel cut off switch could be the problem, it just has 2 wires all you have to do is jump them together if the switch is bad and the fuel pump will run. I think you should take a look at the timing belt more then likely that is the problem.

My 1991 escort wont start. the fuel cutoff light comes on when i try, but ive already checked the switch above the right wheel well. it hasent been tripped yet the car still wont start.


If you push down on the red button on the fuel cut-off I bet you'll find it is tripped, and you just don't see it. The cut-off doesn't pop up a noticeable amount when it trips, but can still be tripped. If you find it hasn't been tripped, try disconnecting your battery for about 20 minutes to reset the computer. I've seen the cut-off trip in many escorts simply from hitting a bump on the road. Please let me know what you find.

The fuel cutoff switch appears to be jammed or not able to manual


It is not tripped if the red button is pushed down. The switch might just be defective. How many wires are going to the switch? And what colors are they?

U need to reset the fuel cutoff switch, that is what the light means. U didn't say what model, if it is a station wagon it is in the left rear cargo area trim panel, there is a hole with a plug in it, if it is a sedan it should be in one of the kick panels, also a hole, I think passenger side, if reseting the switch doesn't turn he light out then the switch is defective. this info is in the owners manual as well.

What does the fuel cutoff light indicate in a 91 Ford Escort?


the fuel shut off switch is in the trunk I believe. It comes on when the car is hit and the switch opens up to shut down the fuel pump to prevent a fire from leaking fuel if the tank is ruptured or the line is nroken. You just rest the cot offswtich by pressing the button. Your owner manual explains very well.
