I've had this problem twice (2 different trucks). Both times it turned out to be a bad ground in the engine compartment. Look for a loose/broken wire near the battery. If you find one that doesn't have a home, ground it to the negative battery terminal and see if that fixes your problem. (The wire that I'm referring to serves as a ground for the fuel system, and the pump won't run if it's disconnected. If the wire isn't secured somewhere away from the fan, the fan can catch it and break it.)

Hope this helps.

Do you know what the fuel pressure is at?

Try this. While somebody cranks the engine over whack the bottom of the fuel tank (about dead center) with a rubber mallet. If the vehicle starts replace the pump. The fuel pump is kept cool by the fuel in the tank. Running the tank dry is hard on the fuel pump.

How many miles do you have on it? The fuel pump is in the gas tank, I have a 97 explorer and around 75k miles the fuel pump went out. After talking with other Ford truck owners this was pretty common. Its not a cheap repair unless you are willing to drop the tank yourself.

Where is the fuel pump?

the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. under the hood in black box[main fuse and relay panel] before you replace the pump, i suggest that you check fuel pump relay. or have you been hit from rear? you may need to reset the fuel pump shut off switch. you will find the reset switch in rear of car, look for a pop out panel on the left hand side when you open the trunk. push the switch in [like a reset switch for old t.v. push it in and then try to start the car before you replace the fuel pump please! but if you know for sure that the fuel pumps bad, drain all the gas out before dropping the gas tank. this will save you alot of trouble. also disconnect the positive cable from battery before you do anything!!!!!! hope this helps, merry christmas. and as always,if you need further assistance, please repost your question and an expert will be happy to assist.

Not getting fuel in my 1987 ford ranger

I believe those had an inertia switch as well on passenger side near center hump, up close to firewall at or near end of carpet, that may have tripped as well. Push plunger down to reset.
