If your vehicle was equipped with this safety feature, and if once you fill the tank with fuel, pressing the switch does not enable you to start the vehicle, it is possible that running low on the fuel has clogged the fuel pump pick up in the tank with tank debris from the bottom and/or the fuel pump impeller seal has been damaged due to inadequate cooling which occurs when there is little liquid fuel left in the tank. The bottom line is, if you still have a no start condition after filling the tank and pressing the switch, it is recommended that you request a no start diagnostic during which the responding certified mechanic will runs the necessary tests on the fuel system to see if you need fuel system repairs, possibly including fuel pump replacement. If you have additional concerns, please let us know and hope we can help you with any needed repairs.

2. Remove air cleaner assembly.
3. Disconnect the oil drain tube from the crankcase vent oil separator.
4. Loosen the air cleaner outlet tube clamp and detach the air cleaner outlet tube from the turbocharger.
5. Remove the bolts, the crankcase vent oil separator and the air cleaner outlet pipe as an assembly.
6. Remove and discard the crankcase vent oil separator press-in-place gasket. (To re-install, tighten to 13 Nm (115 lb-in).
7. Disconnect the PCM electrical connector (BE SURE BATTERY IS DISCONNECTED FIRST!) and retainer. Disconnect the in-line electrical connector and position the engine wiring harness on the engine.
8. Remove the pushnuts and the glow plug module heat shield.
9. Disconnect the high-pressure fuel injection pump electrical connector and detach the retainer from the glow plug module bracket. Disconnect the glow plug module and the exhaust gas recirculation temperature (EGRT) sensor electrical connectors, detach the wiring retainer and position the wiring harnesses aside.
10. Remove the nut and position the ground strap aside. To install, tighten to 13 Nm (115 lb-in).
11. Remove the engine wiring harness bolt. To install, tighten to 13 Nm (115 lb-in).
12. Remove the heater supply tube nut. To install, tighten to 13 Nm (115 lb-in).
13. Remove the bolts and the glow plug module bracket. To install, tighten to 13 Nm (115 lb-in).
14. Remove the nut and position the transmission fluid indicator tube aside. To install, tighten to 8 Nm (71 lb-in).
Warning: Do NOT disconnect the glow plug electrical connector before dislodging the seal from the valve cover or the wiring harness may be damaged.
15. Using an appropriate tool, dislodge the glow plug wiring harness seals from the valve cover.

Warning: Contact with exposed fuel injector wiring, if energized, may result in electric shock.
Use care when working on or around energized fuel injector wiring. Fuel injector wiring supplies HIGH VOLTAGE to operate the fuel injectors of course, you disconnected the battery though.
22. Disconnect the fuel rail pressure (FRP) sensor electrical connector.
Warning: Fuel injection equipment is manufactured to VERY precise tolerances and fine clearances (think space shuttle). To prevent fuel system damage, it is essential that absolute cleanliness is observed when working with these components. Always install fuel system caps on any open orifices or tubes.
23. Remove the FRP sensor. To install, tighten the FRP sensor in 2 stages.
Stage 1: Tighten to 7 Nm (62 lb-in).
Stage 2: Tighten an additional 40 degrees.
24. Bleed the high-pressure fuel system.
If you feel like this job may be too overwhelming or run into any issues, consider YourMechanic to get it done. One of our mobile technicians can come to your home and replace the fuel pressure sensor at your own convenience.
