FORD FUSION 2010 Fuel Pump Inertia Switch.

These switch's very rarely go bad . Check the voltage at both sides of the inertia switch . Don't BELIEVE anything without testing . Your Fusion has electronic returnless fuel system , a FPDM - fuel pump driver module control's the fuel pump .I'm looking at a fuel pump wiring diagram for your vehicle and it doesn't show a inertia switch anyway . Your best bet , have it towed to the dealer .

2004 mercury marauder. Y wont the fuel pump kick on???

Could be that the Inertia switch has cut it off. Check Websites with the term "2004 mercury marauder inertia switch" then add location to the search if the first search only generates parts.

This is a safety device and is a part which cn be in different locations depending on the year.

In addition to the Inertia switch, a fuel pump relay or a crankshaft sensor can do the same thing.

2010 nissan versa got in a collision. Wont crank over. Would the fuel inertia switch cause this?

Fuel inertia switch stops the fuel pump running in the case of a collision causing a broken fuel pipe which otherwise could spray a litre of petrol every few seconds and rather spoil someone's day.

Certainly a tripped inertia switch would prevent the engine from starting but I doubt it would stop the engine cranking, though I don't have up to date information on the model and there could be different safety regulations where you are.
The inertia switches are accessible and resettable so why not just reset it and try again. Your vehicle handbook will have the details.

An immobiliser stops the the engine cranking on some vehicles as well as stopping the spark and injection and often the fuel pump.
Bridging the battery positive wire to the solenoid to make the starter crank the engine won't be switching the rest of the stuff back on.

I need to know where is the gas ralay for a 1999 for winstar

The fuel pump relay ought to be in a Powerbox under the hood. You might investigate the Inertia switch to see if the switch activated. This would kill the power to the fuel pump and is a safety item. You can Search for videos and photos of the parts you want by creating a search using your computer. Title it with your Make and Model and Year vehicle and then add terms like location of inertia switch or location of fuel pump relay. Some mechanics post Youtube videos and other media for fixing vehicles.

Usually the inertia switch is behind a front floor kick panel and has a reset button on it.

No electric going to the fuel pump, or the shut off valve.

There is a safety cut off for the fuel pump. They call it an Inertia switch and it has a reset button on it. Usually this switch is either behind a front kick panel or in the trunk.

Look in your Web Browser for a topic like "1993 Festiva Inertia switch location" and for the part under "1993 Festiva Inertia switch".

Wiring diagrams are free at after registering your vehicle. But toggle to the bottom Help areas, chose the free categories as there are pay sites too.

Wont start it appears to be the fuel pump how do i know for sure that it is the fuel pump and no something else

If you have a Gas engine there is a safety switch called an Inertia switch. You should be able to hear the Fuelpump prime the system for 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to Run position. If you do not hear the Fuelpump, the Inertia switch has a pushbutton on it for Reset. Just hold the button down for 2 seconds, then try to start the truck.

If you still do not hear the Fuelpump there is a Relay in one of the Black boxes under the hood. There is also a fuse under the dash. The Inertia switch can be behind a Kickpanel. Check your Operators Manual.

If the inertia switch will not work and keeps popping then you will need to replace the fuel pump.
