Fuel Cut Off


Home Up Ham Barclay Bld Tower Motor delay B/U Gen Fuel Cut Off



About three weeks ago I received a desparate call from my son.  The 05 ranger died on a busy 4 lane road.  He safely coasted into a parking lot the symptoms were cranking no start.  The first thing I had him check was the fuel pump cut off switch found under the dash on the passenger side.  Once he pushed it the engine started.  

Periodically with out any pattern the engine would die or not start.  Pushing the button restored function.  But you had to really push on it multiple times to get the engine to start.  Today 12/15/12 the engine died again in the drive way.  Twice it died and would not start.  We decided to remove and inspect the switch.

We found a burned connector seen below.  I ordered a new switch and connector totaling around $200 to be pick up next week.
