The fuel pump shut-off switch is
located in the passenger’s foot well,
behind the side kick panel. There should be a hole to depress the reset button.

My1998 explorer just quit it won't start i got new


The 98 explorer is equipped with a power surge system to protect internal vehicle wiring, what this means is that if there is a short in the vehicles wiring the alternator will disengage. A way to tell if it is faulty wiring is to pull all the fuses out of the fuse block and try to start it if the engine turns over the problem is internal wiring. If not then you have to put all the fuses back.

Turns over, won't start


Make sure you hear the fuel pump run for a coupla' seconds when you turn key to on.You might need to push the fuel pump inertia reset button(for collision purposes,it shuts off pump).
Next check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail feeding the injectors.It's like a tire valve,but it has pressurized fuel so be careful, and check only a cool engine with the switch in `run' position,engine not running.

While starting my 2002 Ford Explorer sometimes it acts as it is flooded and will not start unless I put my foot all on the way down on the accelerator. I believe that this started when I came out of store...


well theres two things that could be happening. first would be the most obvious and to say the fuel pressure regulator is bad. simple test for that would be to pull the vacuum line off of the fuel pressure regulator, and check for fuel in the vacuum line, if so it needs to be replaced. if not the next answer would be if you take lots of short trips without getting the engine warm, the engine will actually flood. its because the EFI tells the injectors to stay open longer and to dump more fuel in the cylinder just as a choke on a carb would do, and if you shut it off during this time it can actually flood the cylinders with fuel.

Fuel pump relay


In the fuse box, (under the hood), lower right corner. C1051....if you think its bad, there are others like it in the fuse box you can swap with. If the fuel pump doesnt work, be sure to check the INERTIA SWITCH. I cant tell you how many fuel pumps are replaced because no one checked that switch. If the Inertia Switch is good, have someone rap on the bottom of the fuel tank while you are cranking the engine over, if it starts then, the fuel pump is bad.

Recently heard that a 2003 ford explorer sport trac had a anti-theft swith/button on floorboard that when activated will not allow vehicle to start. Where is that located? thanks


don't know about anything like that. I know Ford did put the emergency fuel shut-off switch on the passengers side floor up under the dash just behing the carpet on Rangers and were sometimes unplugged by passengers with long legs. It has a little red button on it that pushed down. Check to see if you have something like that. Maybe it shuts off when the anti-theft alarm is activated and has to be reset.
