Inertia switch is easy to reset. It should be in the passenger side well of the trunk behind the lining (carpet like cover). I think there's a reset button on it like a GFCI outlet in your house.

I have a 1999 Ford Taraus and it starts reving the engine yesterday. It was turning about 2000 rpms while sitting still. Now it has reved down when first started but it will then start revving up and down...

Could be the MAF sensor. I would try scanning for codes, although sometimes the MAF sensor does not show up on scanner. sounds like the MAF to me.
