fuel pump reset process?

Don't currently have any issue with this - but it occurred to me that I have no idea how to reset the fuel pump!

Can anyone talk me through this?

I don't think it can be (or needs to be) reset.

What you on about?

Re: fuel pump reset process?

I think you just press the big black button (which is somewhere around the centre console). I've not got a Sei with me at the moment (and I'm too tired to search through the factory manual).

The owners booklet shows something on the centre console - but I've had a damn good poke about under my dash and can't find anything that even vaguely represents it....

Re: fuel pump reset process?

it is bolted on a bracket to the back of the bulkhead, behind the centre of the dash / centre console.

Re: fuel pump reset process?

To begin pumping the fuel again in the event of a crash. The cut off stops fuel from leaking if pipes are split so there are no large explosions.

Luke.
Thanks nmrmak thanked for this post
