1996 Ford F-250 mileage: 187,000. I was driving home and I stopped at a stop sign. Pulling through intersection and the truck dies. Rolled back and tried to start it. Nothing. It acted like it was flooded, but it is a throttle body fuel injection. Tried both tanks. I ended up having it towed home and assumed it was a frozen fuel line. That did not prove to be the case. Warming it up did not help and neither did replacing the fuel filter and electric fuel pump. Spray ether in throttle body and will try to run. Acts like its not getting power to fuel pump. No fuel pressure in rail. Neither tank feeds engine. Disconnected line fuel pump to engine block and no fuel found. All fuses checked. Is there a relay to be reset? Or a fusible link? Any other ideas are welcome.

An inertia switch controls the voltage to the fuel pumps. Resetting the button on top of the switch should get the power back to the pumps. The inertia switch is located on the firewall to the right of the transmission hump. If the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, then both pumps in both tanks must be replaced for proper operation. If your fuel pump is frame mounted, then this obviously is not necessary.
