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

To reset the switch:

1. Turn the ignition to the off position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no leaks are apparent, reset the switch by pushing in on the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition to the on position.
