Default Fuel safety switch

A friend of mine recently hit a tree while swerving to avoid a deer. Needless to say some probs have occurred. We have talked to several people and they say there is a fuel safetyt switch which Needs to be flipped back on. All the research I have done says there is not one. Is there a switch and if there is where is it located?

Never heard of it. Doesn't mean there isn't one but don't ever remember anyone talking about it.

I owned a Ford Aerostar van that had one, it was an inertia switch behind the passenger interior lower trim panel. If the PT doesn't have one, it becomes trouble shooting to see which component is faulty, fuel supply or ignition.

Is the car showing any codes?

My Old F150 has one also, it is located on the firewall inside the cab around the area of the foot operated parking brake. This is commonly where the Haynes Manual tell you to disconnect to bleed pressure off fuel system before changing the fuel filter.

I don't have the Haynes for PT but see if they say it there, I can look it up in the factory service manual later when at home.

I believe all cars have this ... well at least all that have electric fuel pumps ... as a safety feature so that the fuel pump is de-energized in the event of an accident which leave the key in the on position and or engine running to prevent a spill and fire as much as possible.

Reply back if you have found it .... then I won't lookup ... if you haven't then reply back with model year so we can look up for correct wiring system.
