The inertia switch is either in the trunk or by your right foot on the passenger side in the plastic kick panel. It is a red button that needs pushed down. You need to see if it is not getting fire or fuel.
Is the plastic kick panel,on the inside or the outside of car?
The car has great spark
Inside by your right foot on front passenger side.
Check all your fuses. The fuel pump may have died. Get underneath the car and smack the gas tank with a rubber hammer in the center with the key on. See if it kicks on. It will need replaced if it does.
Hey,thanx,4ur help,u have good Idea's,I did pull apart the r/s kick panel,but no shut-off switch,can u think,of other place? Thanx again.

Finely found,was on the l/s,but its ok poss.bad fuel pump,Thank-You again,For all your Help.
glad to help
I had this problem, changed fuel pump 3 times. The inertia switch l/s kick plate was good. Spark is good, No Fuel pressure. the pump doesn't prime. at all. plug in lines are all good, the fuel gauge responds to change in levels. However fuel pump does not engage pressure. Took it to fire stone they said, it is a bad ground. that means it is the ECM. the tow company said i should check the ground to the tank, before replacing the ECM. But where is the ground to the tank?
