Where is the inertial fuel shutoff located on a 1999 Mercury villager van?

It is called the inertia switch or fuel pump cut-off switch

The fuel pump shut-off switch is

located in the driver's foot well,

switch is accessible through an

opening in the kick panel.

Use the following procedure to reset the fuel pump shut-off switch.

pushing in on the reset button.

return the key to the OFF position.

How do you test the fuel pump for a 1997 mercury villager 3.0.

There should be a spout on the upper fuel rail of the engine. It would look like a valve stem on a tire. There are pressure gauges available through the Tool Loaner programs at places like Autozone,Advance, or Oreilys.

But if you just suspect it is not coming on, then check the Inertia switch and push on it to reactivate the circuit. It is located on the dirver's side above the kickpanel.

Your inertia switch (AKA fuel shut-off switch) is located behind the left side of the dash, above the kick panel (pictured below). You have to manually flip the switch back down to reset it.


I hope this helps you.

Where can i find the fuel shut off switch?

That switch is in the trunk on the drivers side of the left Quarter panel. You should see 1 or 2 openings in the carpet. As you may also have Air suspension, the two switches are usually mounted side by side. Some models just use the Inertia switch, which requires the top button to be pushed to reactivate it.
