There is a fuel shut off relay in case of an accident, so the fuel pump doesn't keep pumping gas into the fuel lines in case of a fire. Sometimes there is a way to reset it yourself, but if I am not mistaken that year model, the dealership has to reset the computer. You might want to check to see if the relay has blown. The relay is usually located around the gas tank. It might be a good idea to take it to the dealership to have them check the car just in case there was damage to the fuel system.

Where is located the fuel pump relay on ford windstar 2002

.Here's a picture of it.1999-2003 Reset Button location
The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear corner of the vehicle. Remove the cover and it is behind the thin "foam" covering inside the compartment towards the rear of the vehicle.

It has a red button on the top of the switch, make sure the button is fully depressed. If it is and the vehicle still won't start check fuel pressure at the rail (there is a port on the rail which is under the hood on the engine) with a fuel pressure gauge. If the pressure is ok (about 30 psi) the problem is most likely not fuel system related.
The emergency fuel pump cutoff switch, also known as the inertia switch, cuts power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident - even a slow speed one - any sudden "jolt" can trigger the switch.

Ford has a inertia switch that cuts power to the fuel pump during an accident. Check your owners manual for the location of this switch.

Does a 2004 Malibu have afuel cutoff switch and where is it

The only "cut off" switch would be your oil pressure sending unit. It's a safety feature in case your car was in roll over or accident that fuel pump shuts off when oil pressure drops.

Reset fuel pressure shut off 91 tempo

Early 90's Fords also had a fuel cut-off switch usually located in the trunk, that would switch off in an accident to prevent more fuel from going to the engine. The problem with the switch is if you hit a bump hard enough, it will trip the switch. So if you not getting fuel, try finding the switch and make sure that it's on.
Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

Car won't start.

it sounds like you have to push your fuel cut off switch, the switch could under your hood or in by the dash somewhere.have a look at your owners manual it will be in there or you can ask your local dealer where the fuel cut switch is on your car.
