I have a 1999 ford explorer Eddie Bauer, Can a fuel pump go out with out any warning. I let my explorer sit for a few months and it just cranks over. I put fuel in it. We put an pressure gauge to it and it showed no pressure at all. Could it be a fuse or the shut off switch.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check fuses and relays. The fuel pump relay for a 1999 Ford Explorer is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment.

The fuel pump relay is in location # 5 and the 20 amp mini-fuse for the

fuel pump relay is in location # 9 between the 2 rows of maxi-fuses.

Also, the fuel pump inertia switch is in the right front passenger area, by the

right foot kick panel in the corner. If the button on top is popped up and you

don't see gas leaking or smell gas, press the button down to restore power

to the fuel pump.
