Fuel cut-off switch

WARNING: Failure to inspect and if necessary repair fuel leaks after a collision may increase the risk of fire and serious injury.

Ford Motor Company recommends that the fuel system be inspected by an authorized dealer after any collision.

In the event of a moderate to severe collision, this vehicle is equipped with a fuel pump shut-off feature that stops the flow of fuel to the engine. Not every impact will cause a shut-off.

Should your vehicle shut off after a collision, you may restart your vehicle by doing the following:

1. Turn the ignition off.
2. Turn the ignition on.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to re-enable fuel pump.

Note: If your vehicle has the push button start system, press the stop/start button twice to reactivate the fuel system.
