Does a 2004 Lexus LS430 have a fuel cutoff switch? If so, where is it located? Thanks.
Country: United StatesMake: LexusModel: LS430
The car shut down during a rear-end accident, and I was wondering if it could be due to a fuel cutoff switch.
No there is no fuel cut off switch . What is the issue you are having?
As I stated above: "The car shut down during a rear-end accident, and I was wondering if it could be due to a fuel cutoff switch."It was started after the accident and then ran thereafter. Just wondering how/if the collision could have caused the engine to stall.
The vehicle runs now correct.Anytime you are hit in the rear the fuel pump will shut down as will the ignition switch its not a fuel cut off but built in safety feature.
Thanks so much for the info. How exactly does that feature work and where is it controlled from in the car? Is it integrated into the airbag system, for example, which monitors vehicle acceleration?
Yes thats correct its integrated through the srs control unit impact sensors as well as the ECM.
