Question answer recommended I purchase a manual. I was hoping someone had similar experience would know what wire to check or where on the fuse block or what relay pin I could jumper 12 volts to see if the pump runs. Fuse F10 doesn't exist in the fuse block by the radiator. The slot for F10 has no contacts and is a blank empty slot. Don't know which relay or what pin to check for continuity or inject 12 volts.
Do you

Vehicle is an 01 Taurus SEL - Key on, no fuel pump activation or sound. 12 volts is at the connector immediately beneath the spare tire that connects to is a small tubular cylinder about 2 inches long - 1/25 inch O.D. The other side of this electrical device has a fluid "T" connection - one being the output side that connects to a cavity (plastic rectangular box with two compartments) with fuel output line going to engine compartment. The other side of this cavity looks like the fuel feed into the cavity from the gas tank.

What is the funciton of this device? Is this cyllinder the fuel pump? The inertia switch checks OK and is not tripped. The voltage at the inertia switch connector measures about 6.6 VDC across the terminals with it disconnected.

Here's a P/N I found on this mystery electrical cylinder under the spare tire compartment (car underside and protected by a plastic shroud): FORD F7DE-9F945-AA - also, 1B4233-1. A Google search on both turns up porno sites?

Motorcraft parts search doesn't relate to either of those numbers.

Sure would like to know what this critter does and if it is the culprit. It has voltage on it but no action.

Thanks
