INERTIA FUEL SHUTOFF (IFS) SWITCH

Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) Switch

The inertia fuel shutoff (IFS) switch (Figure 76) is used in conjunction with the electric fuel pump. The purpose of the IFS switch is to shut off the fuel
pump if a collision occurs. It consists of a steel ball held in place by a magnet. When a sharp impact occurs, the ball breaks loose from the magnet, rolls
up a conical ramp and strikes a target plate which opens the electrical contacts of the switch and shuts off the electric fuel pump. Once the switch is open,
it must be manually reset before restarting the vehicle. Refer to the Owner Guide for the location of the IFS.
