Where is the fuel shut off switch located
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your vehicle does not use an inertia switch that cuts off the fuel. There is a fuel pump relay in the fuse box in the engine compartment. If the vehicle was involved in an accident, the SRS system may have sent a signal to shut down the fuel pump relay. It would be best to test the electrical signals at the relay to be sure that it is getting a signal from the control module. If this is something that you could use a hand in diagnosing/repairing, contact a certified mechanic, like the mobile mechanics available at YourMechanic.com.
