The cutoff switch is located behind the Kick panel on the Drivers side. It is below the hood release.
Just press the button and then try to start your van.

How do you test the fuel pump for a 1997 mercury villager 3.0.

There should be a spout on the upper fuel rail of the engine. It would look like a valve stem on a tire. There are pressure gauges available through the Tool Loaner programs at places like Autozone,Advance, or Oreilys.

But if you just suspect it is not coming on, then check the Inertia switch and push on it to reactivate the circuit. It is located on the dirver's side above the kickpanel.

Your inertia switch (AKA fuel shut-off switch) is located behind the left side of the dash, above the kick panel (pictured below). You have to manually flip the switch back down to reset it.


I hope this helps you.
