Fuel cut off near the injector pump?
or faulty ignition switch.

Should be fairly easy to trace as these can run with no power.

I believe cut off is in or on the injector pump. Can the cutoff be accessed without removing pump?

Lift pump fuel cut off. Trace fuel lines back to pump and check all electrical connections there.

It is most likely s broken or fallen of wire on the injector pump's shut off assembly which shuts the fuel of to the injector tubes.
If you look at the injector pump it should have a lever that says push stop and most likely red that is over ride switch to turn the car off,
These parts do play up and can cost a lot to fix.
I ended up using a choke cable on mine and just pulled it out when I wished to turn the ute off.
