Well there is no shut-off fuse, but there is a 20amp fuse that powers the auto shutdown relay and the fuel pump relay.
It should be in the fuse box in the engine compartment, and the location should be in your owners manual.

SOURCE: 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

Should be throttle body injected,if so in the gas tank. If it's carburated it's on the passenger side of the engine about mid-way down the front on the block,under the alternator.

SOURCE: Where is the asd relay on my 1990 dakota?

ASD is in the engine compartment fuse block.

The pump relay should be there also. Check your fuse panel in the truck though.

Fuses, Relays & Circuit Breakers The fuse panel box is to the right of the glove box with the glove box door opened or beneath the instrument panel (dashboard) on 1989-93 models.

Pull out the fuse panel for access to the blade type fuses

1995 dodge dakota 4x4 turns over but will not start, all relay switches are good, new rotor and distributer has been replace but the wire that goes to the fuel pump has no power, but fuel pump has been...

Most vehicles are equipped with what is called a fuel power inertia switch. It is a basic component that shuts down the fuel system during an accident to prevent fuel from being an factor during sensitive times. You may have to find and flip or replace this switch. I do not know the location of it on this particular model off hand, but if you consult your service manual you should be able to locate it quickly.

NOTE: on most vehicle it is located under the dash near the glove box. On some near the fuse box. On cars it is commonly in the trunk.

Would like to see where fuel pump is located and if there are fuses or safety switches i need to check before i change pump 1997 dodge dakota

The pump is in the fuel tank. There may be a fuse, check both inside and outside fuse panels. A quick way to check if its working is to take the fuel cap off, put ur ear to the fuel neck and have somebody bump the starter. Most of the time you should be able to hear the pump run for a second and then shut off.
