The inertia switch is in front of the passenger seat, bolted to the fire wall, hidden by the carpet on an 89 and behind the kick panel on the 99. 99 should have a picture that looks like a gas station pump with a line thru it. pull panel off, push big red button. on 89 its the little grey button on the top.

Got power to fuel pump but it is not working after putting new one on.This is a 2000 ford ranger.

have you checked the fuel shutoff switch that fords have, owners manual should tell you where and how to reset it, also if you have power you could still have a bad fuel pump relay or a bad ground wire to fuel pump, hope this helps you.

Truck died going down the road replaced crank sensor coil pack and timing chain spark is red not a blue color could it be the ecm truck cranks but wont start

If it is indeed a spark issue. You might have to replace the Ignition Module. On the other hand... check the throttle body to make sure that it is getting fuel... if it's not, you might just need to replace the fuel pump.

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road

fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump

1992 ford ranger 3.0

i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.
