1993 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

As subject says I really really need the location of the fuel pump cut off switch in my 93 jeep cherokee with a 4.0 inline 6 or a close general area. I looked in the area but nothing on the cut off switch I know it has one but I just cant find it and I believe that is what is wrong with my jeep. Any other ideas on location?
Do you

There is no cut off switch like on a Ford car, There is a fuel pump relay though that goes bad, Here is a wiring diagram so you can see what Im talking about and fuse and relay box locations along with a guide so you can confirm the problem and get it fixed.

Jeep will not start after jacking up to change brake pads. Where is the emergency cut off switch?

It doesn't have one. That is found on Fords only.

Read the guides below, they will help you figure out the problem

We have the vehicle listed above (Country) that we have replaced the fuel pump on, but we are still not getting any fuel. Checked all the fuses and relays, and was told it is probably the cut off switch, but we do not know where that is located at. Can you tell us where to find it?

These cars do not have a cutoff switch it is probably the pump itself which is common. Here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when doing the job and diagrams below to help you see what it will be like for your car:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-an-electric-fuel-pump

Disconnect negative battery cable. Release fuel system pressure. See, fuel system pressure release. Raise and support vehicle. Remove fuel tank filler and vent hose at filler tube. Remove rear tow hooks (if equipped). Remove skid plate.
Remove trailer hitch (if equipped). Remove exhaust tailpipe heat shield. Disconnect fuel supply line at filter. Disconnect fuel return and vent lines at tank. Disconnect fuel pump module harness connector. Support fuel tank with transmission jack.
Remove tank strap nuts and move straps away from tank. Lower right side of tank while feeding fuel hoses through access hole in body. Remove filler hoses from tank. Insert siphon hose and drain tank. Lower and remove tank. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Please run down this guide and report back.

Yes, that was it. Took me awhile to drop the tank but the dirt inside was causing the issue. So I flushed it out and got a new pump for $230.00 on Amazon all fixed! Thanks for the guide.
