John Bean picked up the FMC line. Been a several years ago but they got me a manual. As I look it does not have a schematic. I also bought a few parts from them.

Does a 2005 dodge durango have a fuel pump reset switch

Wouldn't that be wonderful... but NOPE.

But there are non-FMC reasons fuel-pumps DDR (don't-do-right).
AC Delco for example.

That's Ford & Lincoln (FMC) "inertial switches" were added which
SHOULD need to be reset... as the early versions of those SUV vehicles became quite nefarious for spending time with their wheels SKYWARD. After which... needing to RE-SET before FUEL was pumped again... seemed pretty clever.

Even so...
I think that problem was resolved to FIRESTONE TIRES.

(good idea though... both a known check point on FMC Vehicles).

I own a 2005 Ford Freestyle, all wheel drive. My car starts shaking when im on the highway and I reach 60 mph. My tires were bad so I just purchased 3 used tires thinking that this would fix the problem...

Problem could be either a faulty or out of balance tire. If the place that balances them for you is half decent they will be able to inspect and tell you if you have a faulty tire.

Fault finding

Do you have a new set of tires? If so, its very likely they are not properly balanced. If not, it;s likely that one of the wheel weights on one of your tires came off and your tires are no longer balanced. Try getting your tires balanced and see if the problem goes away.

Steering gets really sensitive at highway speeds. Hit a bump then car likes to shake left and right.

Sound like out of balance tire or a separated tire or bearing but, the two most common causes are the ones. I suggest visit some tire shop and would like to have the tires inspected and balanced.

Some customers may comment on shaking/vibration in the steering wheel, floor or seat while driving at highway speeds (typically between 60-72 mph (96-115 km/h)) on smooth roads.

These specific vehicles may be sensitive to various rotating mass assemblies, especially if they are considered to be out-of-balance.

In order to correct this:
1. Visually inspect the tires and the wheels. Inspect for evidence of the following conditions and correct as necessary.
- Missing balance weights
- Bent rim flange
- Irregular tire wear
- Incomplete bead seating
- Tire irregularities
- Mud/ice build-up in wheel
- Stones in the tire tread

2. Set the tire pressure to 30 psi (205 kpa) COLD.

3. If the road test indicates a shake/vibration still exists, check the imbalance of each tire/wheel assembly on a known, calibrated, off-car dynamic balancer. If any assembly calls for more than 1/4 ounce on either rim flange, remove all balance weights and rebalance to as close to zero as possible.

Important: Some GM dealers may have a Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer. This will simplify Step 5 by not requiring dial indicators. If a Hunter GSP9700 machine is available, it may also be used to measure the radial force of the tire/wheel assembly. A guideline here is 18 lbs or less.

4. While on the balancer, measure wheel runout. If radial or lateral runout exceeds .020 in (0.50 mm) for aluminum wheels (.030 in (0.76 mm) for steel wheels), replace the wheel.

5. After confirming wheel balance and wheel runout, if any changes were made, road test the vehicle again.

6. If the smooth road shake/vibration still exists:
Important: The completed worksheet must be attached to the hard copy of the repair order.

Record Radial Force Variation readings if you have access to Hunter GSP9700 Wheel Balance equipment. Use the worksheet shown in this bulletin to record the readings.

If one or more of the tires have RFV readings in excess of 18 lbs, match mount the tires to get below 18 lbs. Readings of 12 lbs. or less are preferable for critical customer concerns.

If the RFV can not be reduced to an acceptable level, replace the affected tire with one obtained locally.

The screened tire program is no longer in effect for Bridgestone/Firestone, Goodyear and Michelin. Low speed screened tires are available from Continental General only, and only for the Buick LeSabre.

Road test the vehicle to ensure the shake/vibration has been resolved.

7. Replace both lower control arms on vehicles built prior to the VIN breakpoints shown. The new lower control arms may provide an incremental improvement to the vehicle ride. Customers who have become "tuned in" to the shake condition may still feel some shake in the vehicle after the new lower control arms are installed.
Refer to Lower Control Arm Replacement, (refer to the Parts Information table below for SI document ID numbers).


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice weekend.

Shimer in the front win i 45 to 50 it fil like its on the lift side

a vibration only at certain speeds usually indicates you need your tires balanced, of course there could be other issues that can cause the problem I.E. a bad tire, a bent rim but the company that you choose to balance your tires should inform u of any issues with your rims and tires while they have them off

Wheel vibrations at 75+ mph

Most computer controlled tire balancing machines which are in use today only balance tires to between 65/70 miles an hour. To get them balanced to a higher speed you might want to call a few auto performance shops and see if they balance tires to a higher speed. At higher speeds it takes very little in the way of an off balanced tire to really set up a vibration so shake.
