Can shift solenoid cause engine to crank no start ? Or can safety neutral switch cause key stuck in on position and no start will crank in 2003 trailblazer.

No, It can not do that, Any of the solenoids in the truck will prevent it from cranking. I would suggest checking the fuel pump. its simple to check, Have someone turn the ignition key on until the dash lights light up. (do not crank the engine). When they do that, you need to get your ear as close as possible to the fuel tank. You are listening for a whineing sound. It will whine for about 2 seconds only, this is normal and means the fuel pump is working. If you hear nothing.... the pump has failed.

Fuel pump switch overly sensitive is there a fix

You can bypass the inertia switch or replace it. Bypassing the switch is NOT recommended since it is a safety switch to cut the fuel pump off in case of a rollover type accident.

Can the Neutral position switch cause my land rover to die while in drive mode?

The 2000 Discovery with code p1590 is not neutral safety switch, this code 1590 is for the ABS rough road signal circuit malfunction .this is can be caused by a bad wire or sensor problem. The ABS is the anti lock brake system and will not cause engine to die out.

the problem you list is more of a signal loss for crank sensor or other sensor but most of the time a sensor fault that cut engine should set a code no matter how fast or often, so i would have to say it must be a fuel problem, the fuel pump stops pumping at times causing loss of power and then picks back up.

What scan tool are you using that told you this was a neutral switch? is this a small code reader?
I would let the dealer scan it with a real scan tool and see what is going on, when you say it dies while driving are you saying the engine shuts off and you need to restart it or is it a loss of power at which you can not give it gas or engine revs up but wont go?

1997 F-250 no power to the fuel pump. The fuel pump works. The safety shut off is down but no power in any of the 2 wires to it. changing the fuel pump relay has no improvemnt.

Check the fuse block. Use a test light and don't rely on just looking at fuses. But if the main ignition control unit went bad, it will also cut the power to the fuel pump relay. Autozone will check the main control unit.

Where is the fuel cut off switch for f 150 89 pick up

I think ( if I remember correctly) up by brake pedal on firewall area, or maybe behind kick panel on passenger side by right foot. Let me know if not, I'll dig a little if not.
