No, but you can bypass it, there is only 2 wires to the cut off switch just hook the 2 wires together and this will bypass the switch.

1993 Buick Roadmaster keeps on blowing fuel pump/ecm in-line 20 amp fuse. Car stalled out in a parking lot, would not start, no fuel. Changed fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay.

Please help as I cannot afford to take car to shop and presently working


You said the fuel pump is disconnected at present and the fuse still blows so I am thinking you have a dead ground in the fuel circuit maybe a wire is pinched after the fuse and before the pump. Check along the frame for this and make sure all of you ... Cars & Trucks

Fuel pump wont shut off. It sounds like it goes thru normal cycle and it is like it shuts half way off when turning car off. I pulled tank and pump did find a short, I fixed it, BUT, after hooked battery back up it seemed to work fine, turned car off was sitting in it, "ok i dosed off for about 10 minutes", then all of the sudden it just started running AGAIN! have a switch temporarily rigged to the fuel pump fuse so i can shut it off manually. Do you have any ideas?? Oh its a 1988 nissan 300zx


Check the fuel pump relay. Unplug it the next time you have this problem and check for power (12vdc +)at all of the four terminals--only one should have power when the key is off. If this is the case the trouble is probably the relay itself. If tw ... 1988 Nissan 300ZX

I had a customer buy an 02 cavalier from me. About a week later they called me saying that their car wouldnt shut off and they couldnt turn the key back. To get it to turn off they turned the steering wheel all the way to the left and it shut the car off. I have replaced the ignition switch and now cant get the car to start. Did this disable the fuel pump? What the best possible fix at this point? Thank you

Now I've gone ahead and done all necessary repairs but my car still will not start or even make any noise at all for that matter when I turn the ignition.. I
