No , Cadillac's do not have a fuel cut off switch , not like ford with inertia fuel shut off switch . GM vehicles have fuel pump relay , located in the under hood fuse box , in most case's . What model Cadillac do you have ? The PCM/ECM - engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay by supplying battery voltage to the control side (coil) of the relay , closing the contacts inside sending battery voltage to the fuel pump. The computer won't energize the relay if it doesn't see a input from the crankshaft position sensor .
All GM products have this same way of controlling the fuel pump. Watch this video on how to test the relay an electrical circuit.

SOURCE: Have a 2003 Suzuki XL-7 involved in an accident.

I don't know the Suzuki but hopefully I can point you to where most vehicles put the switch so you can get rolling again......

Inside the back near the hatch on either side you should have removable panels. Check inside both of them and hopefully you will see it. On most vehicles it is on the passenger side.

Good luck!

Finding Automobile Repair Manuals Online
Example Questions that can be answered by this FAQ:

Is there a repair manual for my 1983 Toyota Tercel online?
Can you find me an electrical schematic or diagram for my truck on the Internet?

Many of our patrons are interested in saving money by repairing their cars themselves. They know from experience that repair manuals and diagrams can make their work a lot easier. When their local library doesn't have the manual they need, they decide to see if they can save a little more money by finding a free copy of the manual or diagram on the Internet.
Unfortunately, these materials are almost NEVER available on the Internet for free! The reason for this is that the people who publish the manuals and own the copyright aren't about to give the material away free--they want to get paid for their work!! Also, many of the manuals are so large, it would be very costly to place them online and store all the Web pages or provide access to them from a database.
The Internet, though, has a large number of web sites where you can buy service manuals and schematics from bookstores, publishers, and other collectors. Here is just a sampling of what sites are out there:

Chilton Repair Manuals (
Factory Automanuals (
Haynes Publishing (
Vintage Books ( ( (

You may also want to check out Yahoo's category for Automotive Booksellers, or more general on-line bookstores such as
Don't forget that public libraries are also great places to find such manuals -- many libraries have them in print or on cd-roms. They may also be able to get the manual or diagram you need from another library if you use their Interlibrary Loan Service. Not every library offers this service, but it never hurts to ask if they do!
Finally, there are many web sites out there where you can at least ask an automobile expert for advice.'s Automotive Advice category is a good starting point for finding these services.

Location of fuel cutoff switch in a 2003 nissan 350z

There is no fuel cut off switch. The electric fuel pump only operates for a few seconds when the ignition is switched on and will only remain on when the engine has been started. If the engine is not started and the ignition is left on the computer will cut power to the pump.

If you want to cut all power to the fuel pump you have to remove the fuse for the pump or remove the relay that covers the power circuit to the fuel pump.

I recently tipped over in my 2003 ford escape. I got someone to flip it back on it's wheels, and it started back up and drove it home, but when i went back later, it wouldn't start? What are the...

Most likely the fuel pump is not running because the crash sensor, aka the fuel pump cutoff switch, has tripped. They usually have a reset button on them and are located by the in line fuel pump.

2003 4.6 f150 wont start replaced fuel pump, filter engine cranks computer reads all systems fine

When you turn on the key to Run, do you hear anything? There is an Inertia cutoff switch which kills the power to the fuel pump. This switch is usually behind the front kick panels and has a reset button that you push. It is a safety switch and can sometimes trip if a doorslam or impact is felt by the sensor.

There can be a Fuel pump relay in the black powerboxes, but there is no Code, so it should be okay. If you have a gauge to measure fuel pump pressure, check to see if the fuel pump is working by measuring pressure at the fuel rail.
