Fuel Reset Button

Question on the "Red" fuel reset button sitting by the driver's left foot.

What is it for? Is this part of the safety cut off system for the car? How does it work?

Nothing on the owner's manual that I could find....

 

Related topic: "There is a fire safety cut off system for the fuel pump, injector(s), and spark that is centered in the autoshutdown relay. Power will only be provided to those parts for about 1 second if the engine is not turning over just in case there is an accident which stops the engine. The ASD relay will close only upon a signal that comes from the distributor sensor to the engine controller which then will energize the relay. Without that signal, nothing in those systems will operate for more than 1 second. Thus you hear the fuel pump run for one second when the ignition is turned to run."

 

Thanks

Refer to page 161 (2006 manual) of the Mustang Owner's Manual.

 

This device stops the electric fuel pump from sending fuel to the engine when your vehicle has had a substantial jolt.

 

After an accident, if the engine cranks but does not start, this switch may have been activated.
