I think that year still had the inertia switch in it. If it is bumped hard enough it will shut the fuel pump off. This is in case of an accident. It does have to be manually reset. They are usually under the passenger side kick panel. The dealer should be able to tell you where it is at for sure.

What all safety switches are on a 1996 ford thunderbird


I think the only safety switch in the starting circuit (which just engages the starter motor to crank the engine over) would be the neutral safety switch. But if you have the anti-theft system, that will inhibit starting while honking the horn and flashing the headlights, too.
There is an inertia switch in the wiring to the fuel pump which could trip with a large bump, but it would only shut off the fuel pump, and not affect the starting circuit.

The neutral safety switch wiring would be found in the wiring to the Transmission Range sensor, which also needs checking.

Were is the fuel safty shut off on a 95 z71


There is no fuel safety shut off switch on any vehicle except a ford. If you have no fuel pressure check for power to the pump. If there is no power let me know and I'll get you more info. If there is power than your fuel pump is likely gone bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Stop running while doing 65mpr on freeway, first started dieing with fast left turn, got worse started dieing when i hit a bup in road, then started dieing with right or lift fast turns and bups in road,...


Check the Timing belt and the fuses. If you have installed anything that has wires that you connected into the fuse block check those to make sure one hasn't come free and shorted a fuse on the fuse block or Power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, and I know this is a long shot, check the oil level in the engine to make sure your bump is working and that the sensor is responding correctly. I had a sensor go out once and when the engine got low on oil it didn't register but when I made turns you could hear it and feel it with a lose of power.

Crown Vic wont turn over.


I would check the plugs around and on the engine. Also check to see if the inertia switch in the trunk was tripped, that cuts off power to the fuel pump in an accident.

Few months ago had fuel pump assembly replaced. Not the pump but the assembly. Location is behind the rear seat above the fuel tank and actually its in the tank but can be reached by removing the rear seat...


I would say that you are on the right track , I think that maybe when the work was done on the fuel pump assy the mechanic may have pinched the power wire and hitting the bumps has caused it to short.you will have to take the seats out again (sorry).You need to look for a damaged wire or evidence of arcing .Hope this helps.

hi its probably the fuel cut off switch. in an impact an enerchia switch will cut off the fuel pump. your local dealer will tell you where its fitted and its just a push of the switch and away it will go.

Engine cranks but won't start


If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.
