Of all the punctuations (and words) that you left out of your post that makes it very difficult to read and understand, what made you think those two particular commas were important enough to include?
It sounds like you are looking for some technical information. Try Kia Global Information System

Fineline...
Don't worry about the proper "punctuations (and words)"...We know you're frustrated and need help.
I googled "fuel shut off" and found this as quoted below.

"Mounted to the inside of the passenger fender by the air filter housing. It's a black circle switch. Just push the center of the button."
Guest 4 months ago

And one on a 2003 Sorento posted to this forum.. by "KIAMECH" he's rated as expert.
http://www.kia-forums.com/2003-2010-...ia-switch.html.
"Yes there is, and it's located on the passenger side inner fender, under the hood. If it was tripped, push down in the center of the rubber that waterproofs the switch."

It sounds logical as my 2006 KIA spectra has one located in the engine compartment mounted on the strut tower BUT on the driver's side. It is black and has a black rubber "boot" (like a baby bottle nipple) over it. You just push in on the center of it and that resets the shut off.
Post on my model Spectra on the web...
"There is a shut off fuel switch on the 2007 Kia spectra. It is a rubber covered button mounted at the top and rear of the left shock tower. Press down on it to restore the fuel flow. "
If the Spectra has one the more expensive Sorento should have one as manufacturers tend to skimp on lower end models NOT higher end ones...

If you don't get a good answer on this forum...give us a few days and don't mind the perfectionists trolls.. We are here to help not hinder...

DID AIR BAGS DEPLOY? WAS THE SRSCM REPLACED? SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM CONTROL MODULE IS LOCATED UNDER CENTER CONSOLE TOWARDS DASH. JUST A THOUGHT....KPS
FROM KGIS
The supplemental restraint system (SRS) is designed to supplement the seat belt to help reduce the risk or severity of injury to the driver and passenger by activating and deploying the driver, passenger, side airbag and belt pretensioner in certain frontal or side collisions.
The SRS (Airbag) consists of ; a driver side airbag module located in the center of the steering wheel, which contains the folded cushion and an inflator unit ; a passenger side airbag module located in the passenger side crash pad contains the folded cushion assembled with inflator unit ; side airbag modules located in the front seat contain the folded cushion and an inflator unit ; curtain airbag modules located inside of the headliner which contains folded cushions and inflator units. The impact sensing function of the SRSCM is carried out by electronic accelerometer that continuously measure the vehicle’s acceleration and delivers a corresponding signal through amplifying and filtering circuitry to the microprocessor.
SRSCM (SRS Control Module)
SRSCM will detect front impact with front impact sensor, and side impact with side impact sensor, and determine airbag module deployment.
1. Self diagnosis: SRSCM will constantly monitor current SRS operation status and detect system failure while vehicle power supply is on, system failure may be checked with trouble codes using GDS.
2. Airbag warning lamp on: Upon detecting error, the module will transmit signal to airbag warning lamp located at cluster. Airbag warning lamp will indicate driver SRS error. Upon ignition key on, airbag warning lamp will turn on for about six seconds.
3. Trouble code registration: Upon error occurrence in system, SRSCM will store DTC corresponding to the error. DTC can be cleared only by GDS. However, if an internal fault code is logged or if a crash is recorded the fault clearing should not happen.
4. Self diagnostic connector: Data stored in SRSCM memory will be output to GDS or other external output devices through connector located below driver side crash pad.
5. Once airbag is deployed, SRSCM should not be used again but replaced.
6. SRSCM will detect whether passenger put on seat belt by the signal from built-in switch in seat belt buckle, and deploy front seat airbag at each set crash speed.
7. Side airbag deployment will be determined by SRSCM that will detect satellite sensor impact signal upon side crash, irrespective to seat belt condition.
8. SRSCM is sensing the vehicle rollover by using the rollover sensor. SAB, CAB, BPT will be able to expanse if mechanic moves the SRSCM during IGN ON state. For this reason, disconnect the battery negative cable during the SRSCM repair procedure.
9. Check for the normal operation of SRSCM after repair procedure.

thanks so much no all the airbags were good the deer mainly blew all the plastic up on the support and threw the hood up into the winshield. The main wiring loom was pinched on the left side poping the relays and what wiring that was damaged was repaired and this is on a 2011 which I tried all the other spots on earlier models and nothing. go back over i replaced the ecu relay in the main fuse box which powers up sensor fuses and the stop tail fuse and also a module fuse under the dash, those were the only 2 problems that I have found which before replacing I had zero cranking and after I replaced them I now have crank when i step on the brake along with gear indicator in the dash which allows me to disengage out of park. The main problem I think we are having out here in the middle of KS is no one has worked on them and the dealership hasnt had to trouble shoot as well so minus us calling a bigger dealership maybe on the west coast we are flying blind

Here is another idea to throw out there would, could it have anything to do with the immobilizer either the key FOB got corrrupt , of course we are dealing with push button start and a sympton if I read it right on kia global is crank no start (due to a no fuel request) on a damgaed immobilizer
