How to Reset a Fuel Pump Shut Off Switch
- Locate your car’s inertial trigger or airbag control module.
- Push the button on the inertial switch; it should be clearly marked as the fuel pump reset, and may be in a contrasting color to the case.
Where is the fuel pump shut off switch location?
Look for the fuel pump switch or inertia switch. This is a small box with a plastic button on top and an electrical connector at the bottom. On some vehicle models, this will be located in the luggage compartment. Look on a side panel for a small, round button which you can pry off with a small screwdriver.
How do you reset a Ford fuel pump shut off switch?
To reset the switch:
- Turn the ignition to the off position.
- Check the fuel system for leaks.
- If no leaks are apparent, reset the switch by pushing in on the reset button.
- Turn the ignition to the on position.
- Wait a few seconds and return the key to the off position.
- Make another check for leaks.
How do I know if my fuel cut off switch is bad?
Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Fuel Pump Shut Off Switch
- Engine suddenly stops while driving. One of the first symptoms of a potential issue with the fuel pump shut off switch is an engine that suddenly stalls while driving.
- Switch that trips for no reason.
- No start condition.
How do you know if an inertia switch is tripped?
if it tripped,then the button will pop up and all you need to do is push it back down until it clicks/stays down. it’s rare for the inertia switch to fail,but possible.
What does the fuel pump reset button do?
What does the fuel pump reset button do? This safety feature is intended to shut the fuel pump off in the event of an accident, but can sometimes be triggered by a pothole or even by sudden brake application. These switches are generally designed for a quick reset, but some models may require a more involved approach.
What would make my fuel pump not work?
If the fuel pump is not coming on, and the fuse and relay are good, then it may be possible that there is a problem with the pump or the fuel pump circuit. If it is not then there may be some sort of wiring issue before the fuel pump relay, perhaps a wiring issue or other problem with the ignition switch.
What would make a fuel pump not turn on?
If either due to a faulty crank sensor, or ecu, the crank sensor signal is not being read, the ignition and fuel pump systems will not power up. Also, a faulty ignition module can create the same issue. Check for signals from the crank sensor and other sensors.
What would cause a fuel pump not to get power?
If you there is no power to the fuel pump or the relay, then there may be a possible electrical issue with the vehicle. If there is an issue with the switch or the circuit, perhaps a wiring problem, then power to the fuel system may be cut off.
Where is the reset button?
Alternatively referred to as the reset switch, the reset button allows devices that utilize it, such as a computer or peripheral to be rebooted. Usually, the button is on the front of the device, next to or near the power button.
Can you bypass fuel shut off solenoid?
There is no need to ‘bypass’ the solenoid electrically — if it is open internally it will not draw any power. But you do need the solenoid plunger to retract so fuel will flow to the engine for the diesel to start and run. You can either replace the solenoid or convert to a manual shutoff like on the 330.
What does a fuel cut off switch do?
All modern fuel injection cars are equipped with an inertial fuel cut off switch that shuts off the power supply for the fuel pump if the vehicle is in a collision. This prevents fuel from being pumped in case of the fuel line damage during an accident.
How can I reset the fuel cut off?
This is similar to an electrical circuit breaker in your home which can be easily reset by pushing the button or pulling the leverage down. All modern fuel injection cars are equipped with an inertial fuel cut off switch that shuts off the power supply for the fuel pump if the vehicle is in a collision.
How to replace a fuel pump shut off switch?
There are several engine light codes associated with the fuel pump shut off switch: P0005, P0006, P0007, P0087, P0230. Step 1: Turn the key to run position. Locate the reset button to the fuel pump shut off switch. Press and hold the reset button for about 20 seconds.
Where is the inertial fuel cutoff switch located?
In later years, Ford moved the switch to either the right or left kick panels in the passenger compartment. Once you find the inertial fuel cutoff switch, resetting is as simple as pushing the red reset button. Why did Ford stop using the inertial fuel cutoff switch?
