Hello,

Most often the engine fuel shutoff fuse or the wire to the shutoff is broken. Test the fuse first and then check for power to the shutoff solenoid with the key on.

If the fuse is good but, power is still not to the solenoid, the harness has damage to the 110-green wire to the fuel shutoff solenoid.

The light issue is strange, I can only assume the main B relay is not working. First, check the fuse panels with the key on and then off. Only one has power with the key off. If this is the case, then check the main relays. Check all of the relays in the engine bay. The four grouped together are the main relays and the B relay is the second one. I cannot tell which way to determine the exact relay so, you may need to check all of them.
