SOURCE: nuetral safety switch on 1994 ford f150

the neutral safety switch should be located near the base of the steering column. you may need to drop the column itself to change it. be sure to keep all screws and wires attached unless you need to remove them when working beneath the dashboard. you also need to be careful about the shifter cable that indicates where the shifter is when it moves. it is easily adjusted by loosening the screw that attaches it to position the indicator on the top of the column so that it indicates the correct position (ie indicates that it is d, not n, or r once you have finished.) the switch is easily removed, but also easily mis-aligned so the switch is in the wrong position. be slow and patient to avoid mis-aligning it during installation. it should be installed in the neutral position as it comes packaged and aligned that way.
hope this is of help.
it isn't difficult to do, but depending on how good you are at being a contortionist, you may want a mechanic to do it for you.

SOURCE: no power at fuel pump or crash switch

OK, you may have a dedicated pump for each tank, if so; DOES THE OTHER TANK WORK? If so, you have a problem with the switching system or second tank pump. You may have been testing the electrical, but remember: even a pump that works does not pump gas of there is a broken rubber feeder hose inside the tank. I would consider dropping the tank taht does not work and checking the pump and filter inside. Make sure key is on and test (usually the gray wire). Good luck.

SOURCE: how to replace nuetral safety switch on a 1989

It is a little tedious to do but look underneath the dash, at the clutch pedal. There will be a switch that wraps around a rod that goes from the clutch-pedal to the slave master cylinder. Take a look at the new switch. There should be a thin plastic cover that if you remove it. It will allow you to pull the switch off of the rod. Be gentle with installing the new switch, You can damage it if you force it in place.

Best to check out Web photos for the Inertia switch which has a reset button on it. This safety device is suppose to cut power to your fuel pump when the truck is bumped in an accident. It is a no cost fix. The part is usually around the floor kickpanels.

How to rest a feul safety switch

if you mean inerntia switch there should be a button at the top that will need to be pushed down. They also use oil pressure switches to control the fuel in case of an accident that stalls the motor. consult your manual as far as location to the inerntia switch.

Won't shift out of park unless brake engaged first

This is a common safety feature on most newer vehicles(90 and above). There are some older Toyota cars you can hear the safety lock click at the shifter when you press the brake.

Its there for obvious reasons, but the best is so that a child cannot put a a parked vehicle in gear by accident...and weve all seen people leave the car running before..and leave a kid in there.

My 1990 Ford F-150 suddenly quit running

Look under the dash, against the firewall. there is a little box. on the top of this box is a little button press the button for 10 seconds with the vehicle in the on position but not running position. That was the problem on my 1991 f-150, it is the first inertia switch. It is a safety shutoff incase the vehicle is in an accident or rolls, but a simple hit by the foot can trigger it.

If the battery is new.

If you jump start it but then it will not start after being run then the alternator could be your problem. Alternatively the ECU could be another problem.
