I just changed my speedometer wire on my transmission, I put my car on ramps to do it. When I took my car off the ramps to test ride and see if it works the fuel pump wouldn't turn on. \R\n

You sure you didn't pinch/damage any wires underneath-If not check if the inertia switch is tripped-start here

I checked all of my wires and none of them were damaged or pinched, but when I tested to see if my inertia switch was getting power it was getting power, by the way it wasnt tripped what could cause the inertia switch to not get power
