Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Hello, Thats definitely why the fuelpump is not working. I would try a little WD40 on the switch. If you unplug the connectors and remove the switch you may be able to tap the switch and get the button to move.
There really is not much inside the plastic, just a magnetic ball and a lightweight spring under the button. When you press down on the button it simply makes contact with the magnetic ball and pulls it up to the contacts inside the switch. Your spring may be broken and if that is the case you would need a different Inertia switch.
If the button is just jammed, try removing the switch and turning it upside down and tap it. You can use a knife blade to dislodge the button. Spray it with WD40 and see if you can work the button back into shape.
