Icon5 Fuel Shut off/reset switch on 99?

Im going to replace my fuel filter after class and my haynes manual says there is a "switch" behind the glove box that has a reset button on it and it tells me to disconnect the switch and run the truck till it stalls, to remove pressure in the system. I pulled the glovebox down and i didn't see anything with a reset switch.
Anyone know what they are talking about? or if someone knows what fuse i can take out of the fusebox or relay under the hood that would be cool too.


Thanks

You're talking about the inertia cutoff switch, right?

Mine is close to the passenger side kick panel, but it's not behind it. It's next to it, I think I had to pull back the carpet a bit. It's about same size around as a AA mag-light and has a red reset button on top. I just disconnected the wiring harness from it and let the truck run till it died and then gave it a few more cranks for good measure.

Lay on the floor and follow up next to the kick panel. You will see it. I don't think they were behind the actual kick panel on any year but I could be wrong.

Its on the floor right where your right toes would be. Its covered a bit with the carpet.

All you need is a key to push the plunger up. Start the truck and let it die. You should be good to go then.
