Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

Open Question

My 1997 cougar XR7 will not start. Acts like it isn't getting fuel. I change the fuel filter and check the shut off switch that is in the trunk that is suppose to shut off the gas if you are in a wreck. So now I'm thinking fuel pump?? or is there a relay switch for the fuel pump????

1989 Cougar, XR7, Supercharged-- I have zero fuel pressure. Is it most likely a relay, a fuse, or the fuel pump?


This sounds like the Inertia switch is tripped. This switch is either in the trunk or behind one of the kick panels. This is a resettable switch that cuts power to the fuelpump in a collision. Often a bump of the correct frequency will trip this.

You also have a fuelpump relay in one of the Powerboxes. The sequence is such that power goes to the relay and the wire from the relay goes rearward to the inertia sensor in the trunk(Or kickpanels) which acts like a breaker and then the power goes to the pump.
