SOURCE: fuel pump relay switch not working/ fuel pump emergency switch?

If the pump is making sound, then the relay must be ok.
It could still be weak, but you could tell with a pressure gauge.
(Harbor Freight sells a gauge kit cheap.)

But make sure the ignition is working first, by spraying in some starting fluid.
It is even sputters, then you know the ignition is ok.
If not, then check all the fuel injection connections.
The the temperature sensor and mass air sensor.
Use an ohmmeter, and check resistance against the norm.

Fuel shut off switch location on a 74 alfa romeo spider 200


Does the fuel pump run? The inertia switch, if tripped will prevent the fuel pump from running. If the pump runs but the car doesn't start than it's likely a problem with the fuel pressure regulator or the bypass internal to the pump.

What does the fuel shut off button look like on a 97 ford contour


I see it's been some time sense you posted this question. The Fuel Shut Off Switch is inside the panel beside your left foot on the drivers side. If you are having trouble starting the car sometimes but not all the time the Fuel Shut Off Switch is not the problem. If this switch is tripped you will not get fuel because the fuel pump will not get power from the relay. If it were me I'd replace the fuel pump under the back seat.

Starter turn the engine over but it does not start. it doesn't even attempt start.


When you turn on the key to the Run position you should hear the fuel pump go on for 2 or 3 seconds and then shut off. If you do not hear anything, the Inertia safety switch is probably tripped. This switch would be behind a panel in the rear cargo area. Most likely paired up with your Air suspension switch. There is a button on the Inertia switch which resets it. Push it and hold the button a second or so and then leave the hatch open.

Go try the Keyswitch and see if the fuel pump now makes the noise I told you about. If it does start you car. Then shut it off and replace the panels you removed and shut the hatch.

If this does not work you will need to determine whether the engine is getting any spark. There is also a pressure fitting for a gauge to check fuel pressure. Hopefully you will not need to go any further.

Does a fuel pump continue to pump fuel with ignition on when the fuel line is diconected from fuel filter The car wont start no codes found it has done this a few times this year it runs fine when running...


you have a bad fuel pump it's in the tank and only comes on in these conditions.
1. ignition switch turned to the run position turns on for two seconds.
2. same as above but when engine starts pump continues to run as long as engine runs. and the safety switch for blow out prevention has not been tripped.

Your problem is the fuel pump and fuel sock and the check valve in the pump. only one way to be sure and that's pressure testing. You hook up gage to fuel rail turn the ignition key to the run position look at pressure should read 40 to 50 psi and should hold for 1 minute, if you drop 5 pounds in one minute pump is bad and even if it started they could verify that the check valve is not holding pressure.
This is caused by the life of the pump by using gas with ethonal in it and your car was not designed for it, so it damages the pump and injectors and destroys the filter in the pump.

Fuel pump shut off switch


no it doesn't. the fuel pum has a relay that is located in the junction box under the hood if your vehicle is not starting because your not getting fuel check the relay. I use the a/c clutch relay to switch with the fuel pump relay if the vehicle starts just replace the relay if the vehicle doesn't start then you have a bad fuel pump...please rate
