It is on the right hand side of the engine below the bonnet, it is black in colour and it is hidden below a pipe that comes from the air filter bracket to the turbo. from South Africa with Love. Tumelo Lekalake.
While the probable answer is that the fuel cutout has been trigggered by some external shock, Another case where the light comes on is when the ignition switch has shorted. Open in the switch may not cause the same light. Shorted switch can cause the starter to become engaged anytime the gear selector (auto) is in park or nutral.Other shorts in the ignition switch can dump direct to ground without energizing the starter. A battery draw test would show voltage draw in this case but isolating voltage draw on modern cars is very hard with aftermarket or factory valet and alarms engaged. I don't know, but I had that once and had to find the button to reset it so I could start my car again. The button is in the trunk, on top on the right wheel well. Push it and your good to go...Maybe. Can the ignition switch still be bad even if it doesnt engage the started anytime, but its starting and the Fuel Cutout is lighted only when starting?
It's the timing belt. Plain and simple. Had the same problem . Changed the cam and crank sensors, the computer and the ignition coil pack. Trust me it's the timing.
not always and can be as simple as plugs and wires
It's not always the timing. Mine did the same thing, it turned out to be a loose primary wire to the coil. Apparently this isn't an uncommon problem.
The intake gaskets are known to leak around the 65k-85k mark, and while you're at it, you might as well replace the timing belt and water pump.
The Camshaft position senor dies on these cars. It is a $50 dollar part that can easiy be replaced in the front of the engine.
when it dies the cars stalls while running and restarts but runs poorly. It seems to be a fuel pump problem but acts like a car with 5000000 miles on it or a worn camshaft. Change the sensor and itll run like new..
the filter is against the fire wall. loosen the clamp holding it in place... then, there are two clips holding the fuel line to the filter.. one on top and one on bottom.. these can be popped out with a flathead screwdriver.. it is then just pulled apart from the two pieces of fuel line..
Fuel filter is located in the firewall-drivers side.
