My fuel cut off switch seems to be stuck on my Ford Escort 1999. It seems like it's down, but won't pop back out. The car won't start unless I wiggle the wires a little, that are attached to the circuit panel or box? (not sure what it's called?) Then I'm able to start the car. I had the fuel pump changed, and this problem started after that. Should the cut off switch (red button) be down or should it pop back out? If it's the cut off switch... I'm trying to reset it, but the button is stuck


I believe it should be down and pop out to cut off the fuel. Give it a smack (not super hard but a good jolt) and it should pop out just like if you got in an accident or got hit. If the wires that you wiggle are the ones going into the cut off sitch ... Ford Escort

My fuel cutoff switch was going off two days ago and i could not get the car started.i let it sit for two days and went to go start and i was getting a strong gas odor from inside of the car it wasnt even starting the other day but now it did but a real strong gas smellthe car stero is missing but i was wondering if it is safe to drive the car i did not want the car to catch fire...it is a 92 ford escort do u think it is safe to drive


If you have tried starting it for a while , this can give off a petrol smell because if the engine isnt firing then the bores are getting floaded , the fuel cut off switch should only switch off for a reason ,, EG head on bump , part from that the s ... 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door

I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 4cyl. I am having a problem with my car starting. Sometimes it will crank over OK, but other times I will just hear a click, as if it is not getting good contact.

I recently purchased a starter relay switch but I am having trouble finding the location of the starter relay switch to replace it. Could you give me any help finding the location of this switch or any other help solving this problem

Recently I described for your expertise the problem of my 98 Ford Escort that was broken into, that had the ignition switch dismantled. We were able to trace some wires, start the car, release the steering lock with the key and got it home. However, the battery went down a week later, and the alarm came on. With a new battery, I've tried a number of suggested ways to start, but the alarm keeps blocking, though the power doors, etc work. Some say: "Lock the driver door with the key, then open!" S


You did a pretty good job of tracing wires, and getting your car home! You are to be commended!What you did was bypass the alarm system temporarily. It's a feature built in so that a mechanic canwork on the car, and move it. If a thief st ... 1998 Ford Escort
