The car shut off while I was slowing down at an intersection. I was able to pump on the gas and get it going again but at the next intersection it happened again. This time when I tried to start it nothing happened. It would try to start but would not actually fire. Like it is not getting fuel. Before I rip the car apart and replace the fuel pump I want to make sure there is not a fuel safety shut off switch that could have been tripped (if so, where is it?) Or any other easier fix? Save me!

First thing to do is actually check for correct fuel rail pressure, can you do this test?
