Here is the location of the inertia switch(Fuel cutoff switch), there should be a red button on top of the switch and you need to press down on that button to reset the switch. it is located behind the passengers side kick panel, hope this helps.


The Inertia Fuel Shutoff Switch C203 is located near the passenger kick panel.
