Hello I will help you with your question,

The inertia switch is behind the plastic panel forward of the passenger door. Try reaching your finger over the panel in the slot provided and push the large button down into the switch. If it then runs the jar of the pothole triggered the switch which is intended to cut fuel in the event of an accident.

Please let me know what you find

Thank you
