SOURCE: where is the fuel pump relay and the reset switch

Relay is inside the ICM (Integrated Control Module) right ahead of the right shock tower. The inertia switch should be in the trunk, on the right side.

SOURCE: How do I replace the feul pump on a 1996 Ford

Start this job by running the car nearly out of gas if possible. You need the car lifted at least on the side the tank is on. I use ramps on the front and rear tire on that side only. The tank is held up with a couple of straps. The fuel filler hose will be attached with a clamp that needs to be loosened. The fuel pump assembly is located on the top of the tank. You'll need to disconnect an electrical connection which will allow you to completely drop the tank. Once you've gotten this far the pump assembly usually just has to be turned as it is threaded into the tank. A replacement should be about $150 or so.

SOURCE: need help replacing fuel pump. 1996 ford

Disconnect the battery & any fuel lines you can and the same with electrical connectors first of all. Drain the tankwith a siphon pump if 3 gallons or more of fuel is present. It gets heavy to replace back in and dangerous too.. Have the tank supported now & remove the bolts from the tanks mounting straps. Drop the tank down about 6 inches and check for other connection that need to be removed
RFemove the center retainer to remove the fuel pump with the sending unit
I would replace both items since it is an older car and also replace the filter sock to the pump too
Reverse this procedure to install

Fuel pump dose not come on, hear click in dash


Ford products have a safety switch called an Inertia switch and it cuts the power off from going to the fuel pump. It is resettable with the push of a button on the switch.

The location of this switch varies even year to year. If you have an air suspension, they like to mount the 2 switches close together. Both would probably be in the trunk.

The other locations are behind the foot kick panels above the floor carpet or under the dash behind and below the glovebox.

You can go online and search the statement: 1996 thunderbird Inertia switch location.

They are meant to work by disengaging in a crash. A bump, trunklid slam, doorslam can activate it. If it activates once it does not mean it is defective or prone to do it again. The right vibration will trigger it.

Please rate my info.

I have no power to the fuel pump on my 1996 TBird. Where is the fuse for the fuel pump located.


Do this test first. With the drivers door opened in a nice quite area turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump operating for 5 seconds which is priming fuel to the engine. If not heard the engines oil pressure sensor is at fault. The third wire from this sensor links to the fuel pump to prime. When the engine reaches normal operation oil pressure range the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay for the pump to run. That relay stays on until you shut the engine off

Fuel filter location


Unless it's a 4.6 liter V8, it's on the passenger side about 2 feet towards the rear of the front tire with a metal guard over it on the frame, two bolts, just did mine.
