The fuelpump cutoff is located (usually) in the right rear corner of the car (trunk, or the cargo area of a wagon).

Don't you need to get that "full" tank of gas out of it before the derby?

So, you're going to disable that, right? Everytime you get hit, it's going to kill the car otherwise. Heck, as a prank, go smack the quarter panel of a Taurus in a parking lot (not that I would ever do or condone such a thing), :)

well u have to run witha full tank becuase that leaves less room for vapors in the tank. remomber, vapors cause the fire not the acuall gass itself.


yes i am goin to eliminate it by finding the hot wire and bypassing it to the nuetral wire.

If you remove the carpet in the trunk, the inertia switch is on the left side. Remove the switch, and jumper or solder the leads together for a permanent solution.

Which reminds me...
Lucas, Vanessa needs a new inertia switch. I still have the old switch and connector. :oops:
For the record, I bought her that way.
