I don't have my manual right now, but check in the back compartment, right or left side behind a panel, or up front behind one of the kick panels.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay switch not working/ fuel pump emergency switch?

If the pump is making sound, then the relay must be ok.
It could still be weak, but you could tell with a pressure gauge.
(Harbor Freight sells a gauge kit cheap.)

But make sure the ignition is working first, by spraying in some starting fluid.
It is even sputters, then you know the ignition is ok.
If not, then check all the fuel injection connections.
The the temperature sensor and mass air sensor.
Use an ohmmeter, and check resistance against the norm.

How do you turn the fuel pump shut off button back on a 99 Ford windstar


  • The inertia fuel shutoff switch is located behind the driver side scuff panel. An access hole is in the scuff panel to access and reset the fuel shutoff switch.
NOTE: In the reset position, the button can be pressed an additional 1.59 mm (0.0625 inch) against a spring. This is a normal condition.
To reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch , press button on top of inertia fuel shutoff switch .

I have a 2006 ford f350 and the fuel pump isnt working is there a shutoff switch


Yes. The switch is usually located around the passengers kickpanel. There should be an access hole to press the button on the switch. Sometimes the part is just above the carpet and sometimes you have to remove the kickpanel. If you are unable to find this switch on the passengers side,then look on the drivers side kickpanel.

Under the hood is a Powerbox. The shutoff switch (inertia switch) gets its power from the Fuel pump Relay after the Ignition is turned on. If resetting the shutoff switch does not help, your fuel pump Relay may be bad. On some Ford models, the horn Relay is the same Relay used for the fuel pump. This would allow you to swap and test before buying a new Relay.

FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shutoff switch may have been activated. The shutoff switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, remove the cover plug in the trim and reset the fuel pump shutoff switch by pushing in the button on the switch.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.

The fuel pump shutoff switch is located in the passenger's foot well, behind the kick panel. The reset button is accessible through the recess in the kick panel.

Replace the cover plug in trim after reset procedure.

Fuel Pump Circuit Operation When the ignition is switched to the ON position, it turns the EEC Power Relay on. The EEC Power Relay provides power to the EEC-IV processor and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse, current flow is through the fuel pump relay and Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) switch to the fuel pump. The IFS switch is a safety device used to shut off the fuel pump in the event of a collision. If the IFS switch is "tripped," it must be reset by depressing the white or red button on the top of the switch. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, the fuel pump will operate. If the ignition switch is not turned to the START position, the PCM will shut the fuel pump off after approximately one second. The PCM will operate the fuel pump when the ignition is in the START position to provide fuel while cranking.
After the engine starts, the PCM will continue to operate the fuel pump unless the engine stops, engine speed drops below 120 rpm, or the IFS switch is "tripped."

System Diagnosis Note: Grounding the FP lead at the DLC will allow the pump to run continuously with the ignition switch on.

1999 lincoln fuel pump


My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?
