There is a reset switch. Another term would be the inertia switch. It is located in the trunk area, passenger side behind the carpet cover. It is black with a red push down button and has a two wire harness connector going to the bottom of the switch.

GENERAL INFORMATION

This switch shuts off the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Once the switch has been tripped, it must be reset manually in order to start the engine.
The inertia switch is located on the driver's side of the vehicle behind the kick panel near the driver's feet.

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF .
  2. Ensure that there is no fuel leaking in the engine compartment, along any of the lines or at the tank. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  3. If no leakage and/or odor is apparent, reset the switch by pushing the reset button on the top of the switch.
  4. Cycle the ignition switch from the ON to OFF positions several times, allowing five seconds at each position, to build fuel pressure within the system.
  5. Again, check the fuel system for leaks. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  6. If there is no leakage and/or odor of fuel, it is safe to operate the vehicle. However, it is recommended that the entire system be checked by a professional, especially if the vehicle was in an accident severe enough to trip the inertia switch.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  2. Remove the driver's side kick panel.
  3. Unplug the connector on the inertia switch.

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.


FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

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

will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device

intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been

involved in a substantial jolt.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

2. Check the fuel system for leaks.

3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by

pushing in the button on the switch.

4. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds

and return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
