Normally impact shuts this switch. If simple ops triggers it ~it's probably like a house breaker that tripping over and over weakens it, to the point that it doesn't take a surge anymore. sounds like a weak switch. replace it. fairly easy. otherwise the impact switch (when you get into a fender bender) may be sticky.... Google locations of these and you're 2/3 the way there....... SC

If you are talking about the inertia switch, it has a weight inside and is supposed to trip if the vehicle is in a wreck. If it is tripping under normal conditions, you may need to replace it.

Where is the fuel pump inertia switch on a 2004 excursion?


The fuel shutoff, or Inertia Switch, should be located behind the passenger side front kick panel.
LOOK on the right cowl panel right in front of the door and below the instrument panel. It is simply a button, that you push to reset, and get the fuel pump pumping fuel again.
see illustration.

Can't add gas without the pump kicking off


Most cars today have a vent line coming out of the tank to let air escape as you add fuel, it usually terminates right at or near the filler cap. If this line gets kinked or clogged, the air can't excape as you fuel and the air push back is just like the tank is full, which is why the pump keeps cutting off.

The fuel pump kicks on sometimes but in the middle


Your fuel pump is failing - time to get a new one.
The part can cost $150 to $300 depending on where you buy it and what brand
The labor is free if you do it yourself. You need to get the gas level low and then drop the gas tank to get access to it (the opening it on the top of the gas tank - don't think suburbans has access panel under seat/floor).
Mechanic/dealers will charge several hundred dollars.
If you do this yourself, you can get a free loaner tool at Autozone to remove the locking ring. The tool is brass with a rubber hammer (don't want to make a spark has you tap the locking ring). And get a new seal ring. Google "change fuel pump" or even "change fuel sender unit" for details. Add Suburban to see if you can find a write specific to your vehicle.
