You just press down on the button, usually at the top.
Can you hear the pump run in the fule tank, for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON? Then it shuts off if engine des not start.

check the wiring connector at the bottom of the cutoff switch is it burnt? use a 12 volt test light (avil at any parts store for around $6) to see if it lights up in and out of switch while cranking.

Try checking the autoshutdown relay uner the hood in the fuse cluster. If you look there should be another relay with the same number on it try switching them see if it works. If it does start after switching relays you have a bad relay and replace it, if not its not the autoshutdown relay. There should be a fuse for it as well labeled fuel pump, check that as well.

How can you tell if the inertia switch is reset? I can still see a red line in the switch.


The fuel pump inertia switch button will be flush with the switch housing when activated. Just need to depress the switch till you hear a click. You can also test the switch by giving it a sharp tap with your hand. It'll trip the switch when you do.

If the engine cranks but does not start after a collision, the fuel pump

shut-off switch may have been activated. The ''Fuel Reset'' indicator light

involved in a substantial jolt.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
