No power to fuel pump. This happened once before, had to tow it home. At home it started right up. This time the pump just won't start. I found switch on firewall, passenger side, but I don't know if that is the cut out switch for pump or not

Great Truck, used for many years as reliable transportation then converted to a plow truck. I replaced the fuel pump and it ran for a month. One day, it just said NO. Troubleshooting i realized the fuel pump does not pump gas anymore, and labeled under the hood is the fact that the truck has a fuel shutoff switch that is hidden... The only thing the user's manuel is good for is to stand on if you need to reach something high. i Cannot locate the shutoff switch, and looking online doesn't help either. No one knows.
