Hello,

The inertia switch is located below the instrument panel, to the right of the transmission hump. Here is a diagram (below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

Truck no start, but turns over, lack of gas, located collision shut off switch to fuel pump, will not reset, what next, have tried with key off and on,
have removed 2 wire clip and re installed, switch is located at carpet level
passenger side below heater housing, apparently the fuel pump is not engaging to pump mode, plastic button will not stay down,

was working fine forever, just would not start, so first choice fuel and shut off switch, was not bumped to my awareness.

I am having problems with a new fuel pump not priming. I have located a problem with EEC relay and am replacing it but, I also want to check the inertia switch. I cannot locate it. Does this model have one? If so, where is it?

Well you can just cross the connector with a piece of wire, but try pressing the button down, that is the normal position. If the button is up, that kills the pump.
