SOURCE: fuel cut off switch for 1990/91 ford escort 1.9

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.

SOURCE: 1991 ford escort gt car will not start car was

Possible inertia switch if veh is equipped, let me get this right though, the light came on when the veh stalled??? didnt they all come on???? warning lights i mean???? try pouring a lil gas into the throttle body and then turning over with the starter, if this works and makes it run for a second then your veh is not getting fuel. if its not getting fuel, then there is no fuel pressure. If there is no fuel pressure there is either a leak that you would almost have to see, or the fuel pump is not running. One way to tell if the pump is not running is to have someone turn the key to the run position while you kneel at one of the rear tires of the veh. you should hear the pump come on for 1- 3 seconds, kind of a whining sound, but slight. If its coming on, but the veh still wont start without adding fuel ,that still doesnt mean that the pump is good, but will eliminate the inertia switch. reply and we go from there...

SOURCE: 1994 ford escort gt won't fire

Overall, the best car I have ever owned, hands down. I am the original owner, and have close to 250K on it. I'm not religious about oil changes every 3000, but I get to them eventually. There's plenty of power in the manual trans 1.9 engine, I can pull steep grades with a full load of passengers & luggage running in 4th gear. I'm on my 5th set of tires, 4th windshield (darn rocks), 3rd water pump (they go after about 120K, easy fix tho), 2nd radiator (replaced at 210K), 5th timing belt. Those are all pretty minor, even expected things. The engine, manual trans, A/C, suspension, body, interior, all have been rock solid.

SOURCE: does the fuel inertia switch

Since this trips to prevent fuel from pumping in a collision, it is made to be manually reset. The device on a son's Ford used to trip occasionally on our rough easement. On his car it was located behind a panel in the trunk.

Where is fuel filter


The last picture below is a picture of The fuel pump inertia switch for a 1997 Ford Escort. it is located inside the trunk immediately below the hole in the trunk side trim on the drivers side. You first should disconnect the electrical connector for the inertia switch. Then start engine and let run till the engine stalls as to relieve the fuel pressure. Make sure to reconnect it after finishing the replacement of the filter.

Engine won't shut off '91 Escort GT


Check the fuse box is not full of water.
Thet suffered from leaking windscreens, and it filled the fuse box.
If not, you are looking at a faulty ignition switch.
