SOURCE: Can you remove an inertia fuel cutoff switch on a 06 ranger?

Who cares if it is a safety system? my 05 won't even make it out of the driveway without the thing going off and killing my truck. All because I hit a pothole. If you know how, please tell us. I took it into the shop and the mechanic got 2 new switches from Ford and neither one fit. So either I am going to have spend another $1000 dollars because you have a moral stick up your you know what, or you could help us out.

SOURCE: How can you tell if the inertia switch is reset?

The fuel pump inertia switch button will be flush with the switch housing when activated. Just need to depress the switch till you hear a click. You can also test the switch by giving it a sharp tap with your hand. It'll trip the switch when you do.


FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

If the engine cranks but does not start after a collision, the fuel pump

shut-off switch may have been activated. The ''Fuel Reset'' indicator light

will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device

intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been

involved in a substantial jolt.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

2. Check the fuel system for leaks.

3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by

pushing in the button on the switch.

4. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds

and return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.

Fuel cutoff switch reset


You don't say which Suzuki model you have? However Suzuki don't have an inertia switch, the fuel pump is wired through the engine oil pressure switch, if the engine stops, then 'no oil pressure' so the pump shuts down. Hope that helps.

Where is the inertia switch located


The Maserati Biturbo inertia cutoff for the fuel pump is in the trunk on the upper right. Just follow the wires back from the fuel pump. There is a red button on top to reset. If it goes bad, just unscrew it and shake it vigorously to loosen the ball inside.
