check all of the fuses 1 for the fuel pumps specialy,and check the fuel pump relay,if those 2 are good then the pumps might of went bad.Also check for an emergency fuel shut off switch,it will most likely look like a red push button.consult a manual as to where it might be located,or call a ford dealer and ask to talk to 1 of the mechanics as they have great shop manuals,or you can pick a manual up at any auto parts store for around 12-20 dollars.

I have had to change the inertia switch for poor connections. Ford has updated some of the switches and harness. Quick test is to unplug it and jump the connector to eliminate it. There is a fuel pump relay that acts up as well. Fuse 14 is the pump fuse in the engine comp, the relay is by the coolant bottle, there is also a fuel pump driver module on GT 4.6L located under the trunk. Or maybe the pump. When you want to diagnose it I can help you through chat or phone.

Good Luck

How do you reset a fuel pump in a 1998 chevy s10 truck 2.2 liter engine, 2 wheel drive? The truck hit a curb going pretty fast and now when you turn the key on the fuel pump does not come on. Is there an...

No, no reset for an S10. There would be a fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse/relay block. And also a 10 or 15 amp fuse for the pump at this junction block as well.
Check the fuse, then find the tank electrical connector, pull it apart and find the gray wire -the fuel pump wire. Clip a test light lead to ground then put the tester probe into the gray wire terminal on the harness side of connector. Now have a helper turn the key to start and crank the engine over. The test light should light up if your electrical circuit is working. Before you drop the tank to investigate the fuel pump (it probably needs replacing), check if the ground for the pump is alright. Maybe when you hit the curb, you jarred loose the ground connection.

Ingene cranks but wont start. checked fuses and relay are ok, fuel pump has no power.

open the bonnet/hood then if you look on the passenger side of bulkhead next to inner wing there is a fuel emergency fuel pump shut off switch it is square and has a press button also on top usually rubber coated it may be red or yellow in colour ? try pressing button then try starting ? this switch is auto operation and switches off power to fuel pump in event of impact /accident so lessens risk of fuel leakage and possible risy of fire ? have had these trip out with older vehicle by simply dropping hood closed worth a try ?
