You could tie the two wires together once you cut them from the switch.BUT i would not recommend this because the switch is a safety feature .Besides the switch is not that expensive :)

95 Ford Taurus wagon 3.0. bumped in the rear and car died immediatly. Cant find the enertia switch. Found some kind of black box inside the drivers side rear quarter panel, but it has no reset swetch.



The emergency shut-off, fuel reset, or inertia switch - all referring to the same thing - is typically located in the back right corner of the vehicle.

Sedan: Open trunk lid, look to right side near fuel filler port, pull back the trunk liner to expose the switch.

Wagon: Open hatch, look to right side near fuel filler port, open access panel.

Recessed into the top of the switch is a red button. If tripped, then push down until it resets, or clicks back into the on position.

to test the pump & fuel pressure at the motor

Where is the reset button for the emergency shut off valve for the gas line


RESETTING THE FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.

If your vehicle is a wagon, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located behind the service panel on the right side of the cargo area.

Use the following procedure to reset the fuel pump shut-off switch.
1. Turn the ignition 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 on the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition 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
