What does a "Fuel Reset" switch do, which is next to the front passenger seat?

5 Answers


It resets your fuel pump. If you get into an accident like I did with my minivan, you hit the reset switch and everything resets, radio, clock, fuel pump, ect.

bit confused here though, cuts fuel in case of an accident? And/OR It also resets radio, clock seems but odd, as it says "Fuel Reset".
