SOURCE: Where is the inertia switch located on a 1997

One of the most common was in trunk, behind side panels, usually drivers side.There may even be a hole to poke finger through to reset. Some fords (trucks usually) have them up on firewall inside vehicle by brake pedal, right about where carpet ends, or behind kick panel by passengers right foot.

Location of fuel pump on 1999 ford escort

It's in the gas tank. Just make sure the fuel pump is the problem and not something else. Check for applicable trouble codes. There are some codes for the fuel pump driver module.
There is also an inertia switch, something to check.

I have a 98 Ford escort zx2 we thought it jumped time so we checked and it's fine has fire going to the plugs checked the starter and still won't start it turns over but won't start any ideals

Probably the Inertia switch. Try a little starting fluid and see if it tries to run. If it does start then you have a fuel problem and the power to the fuel pump is probably cut off at the inertia switch. This part has a reset button and the inertia switch can be in several places. Sometimes it is behind a front kickpanel or sometimes in the rear cargo area.

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.

1999 ford escort i have a fuel pressure problem no pressure car off at fuel rail low pressure ignition on car misses when excelerating

your fuel pump only runs for 2 seconds with the key on, unless it is running. Safety reasons. It runs during starting all the time, and all the time if engine is running.
check fuel pump relay in driver kick panel and inertia switch reset in trunk. Se owner manual for info.

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.
