On the 92 ford escort,where the fuel cut off button is located? If you run out of gas,has something to do with the fuel cut off button ?

NO. the reset button will trip if the car is in a collision, or hard bump or even if you slam the door too hard. its located in the trunk above the right rear wheel area. If you ran out of gas, the pump may have gone bad???

My 1994 Ford Escort won't start and it keeps showing a light that says, "Fuel Cut Out," I don't know what this means so I can't fix my problem. Can you help?

in the event of an accident, there is a safety cut-off switch the stops the fuel pump. there is a reset button normally located in the rear of the car and is marked "fuel cut-off reset switch". it's possible this switch tripped.

I own a 1995 ford escort. suspect that the fuse for the fuel pump is bad. Can't locate.

Fuse should be labeled as fuel pump or fuel injection. Fords also have a fuel pump relay, a fuel pump shut off button, reset, under dash by the hump, in case of crash.
Could be the pump itself.

No fuel is getting through to the engine.

possibly a new fuel pump is needed if this is the case its located in your tank and its best to buy the whole fuel pump assembly it makes changeing things much easier... also there is a fuel relay switch inside the trunk or hatch on the driver side behind a small removable panel. open and push the button to reset.

Fuel cut off switch for 1990/91 ford escort 1.9

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.
