My car shut off suddenly. I do not need to replace fuel pump, but I cannot hear it. I was told maybe it was the fuel cut off switch, but do not know where it is located. I looked in trunk and under the backseat. Can you tell me where it is located please?

It is called an "inertia switch" and is used by Ford.

Your fuel pump should run for one second after turning on the ignition switch. If you do not hear that hum, why are you saying the fuel pump does not need to be replaced? Chrysler pumps almost always fail by failing to start up. GM pumps usually fail while the engine is already running.

Have you checked for spark? What about diagnostic fault codes? If you can get the car to an auto parts store, the people at most of them will read fault codes for you for free, otherwise you will need a code reader.

Hello Tiffkwan,

Here is a link to an article that features written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself, also I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning. Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one online from sites like Amazon.com. Once you have the codes please get back to us so that we can further assist you.
