You don't want to do that. The flow sensor controls the heater and chemicals. If the water flow stops, but the heater keeps going it can burn out, or melt the exchanger chamber.

Can I bypass the shut off sensor on my 1996 jeep

Did you mean fuel cutoff sensor? If you did then bypassing it can be dangerous as it is there to shut off fuel flow in case of a collision
so nobody burns up. A new one cannot be too expensive and you could get one from a wrecking yard if new is to high.

How to bypass a flow sensor?

im not sure why you would want to bypass the flow sensor , do you understand what it's purpose is?

anyways the tech side of a flow sensor is a little paddle wheel thats semi metalic plastic (dark) this brushes by a magnetic switch that a computer "counts" the switch open/closes as the wheel turns , faster the flow faster the wheel turns faster the counter counts , to by pass this you have to trick the counter to count up by a different means say like a drill chuck "it's metal" holding it close enough for the magnetic switch to "SEE" while turning is the trick

I receive Lo H20 message at an air energy heat pump. Probable problems?

This is pretty common for LOW FLOW through the heater. Most of the time, homeowners turn the bypass the water away from the heater and this reduces the amount of water flowing through the heater. Check the bypass to ensure that you have enough water flowing through the heater.
There is nothing else that will throw this code unless the flow sensor is bad altogether.
Once you have inspected your bypass, and the code reappears, you will need to have the heater inspected and possibly change out the flow sensor.

1991 toyota pickup dies when you release the gas pedal

There are couple of things I would check out that would cause this problem.

1. The Mass Air Flow Sensor. It measures how much air is going into the engine. Should be located on top of air filter box.

2. The air tube that goes from the Mass Air Flow Sensor to the throttle body. Check for leaks that would bypass air from going through the Mass Air Flow Sensor.

3. The Throttle Position Sensor. Located on the throttle body. This tells the computer what position the butterfly plate is on the throttle body. You control this plate with the gas pedal..

Mass Air Flow Sensor - 92 Buick Century

Remove it and clean with some carb cleaner and a Q tip. Be careful with it so you don't do any damage. 9 of 10 times this will get you running again! Since signal from there is variable low voltage, you cant really bypass it!

F20 error on vaillant eco28 combi boiler

F20 is a flow sensor error. Can be due to a defective sensor/ not correctly fitted, or you may have poor circulation, a big difference in flow and return temperatures, can sometimes make the boiler think it has a defective sensor, check good circulation through system, or if you have thermostatic radaiators valves on every single radiator, take 1 head off, as if you dont have a bypass fitted, it needs a radiator as a bypass circuit
