Ford products have a safety switch called an Inertia switch and it cuts the power off from going to the fuel pump. It is resettable with the push of a button on the switch.

The location of this switch varies even year to year. If you have an air suspension, they like to mount the 2 switches close together. Both would probably be in the trunk.

The other locations are behind the foot kick panels above the floor carpet or under the dash behind and below the glovebox.

You can go online and search the statement: 1996 thunderbird Inertia switch location.

They are meant to work by disengaging in a crash. A bump, trunklid slam, doorslam can activate it. If it activates once it does not mean it is defective or prone to do it again. The right vibration will trigger it.

Please rate my info.

Why the fuel pump don't run and the relay don't click when i turn the key on?


If you can't hear your fuel pump priming then either, the pump needs replacing or the relay. If you replace the relay and you still don't hear the pump prime then it's the fuel pump.

Fuel pump dose not run 99 ford sable


there is also a trianary switch in the cargo area (trunk) make sure this swith has not poped up just push it down if you hear it click it was probably tripped. If it tripped it may need replaced. These switches were used by Ford for many years to stop the fuel pump from running in the event of a crash. Also have you checked the fuse or the relay these are the areas to start before pulling the tank

2004 ford f150 wont start.take fuel pump out and jumped it ,it wo


fuel pump relay, or the simplest solution check the fuse block to see if you have a blown fuse. Most likely its the relay, but check the fuse block, under the dash and under the hood, maybe you'll get lucky. Good Luck.

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
