Hello, looking to find where the inertia shut off switch is located on the truck listed above flex fuel. The initial problem I am having is the truck cranks over but no start. When turning the key I do not here the pump turn on. Every thing else works in the truck but no start. I have read in the manual that is has fuel shut off and the procedure you do afterward which is turn to off and then on and repeat if necessary. I have tried many times with no result. I have searched under dash for switch and cannot locate it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good evening,

The switch is located at the right kick panel by the right front door. You should be able to see it at the top of the panel and you can push the reset as well.

Okay, a little glitch. The manual shows one at the location I told you.

The wiring diagram does not show it. There was a note that said if the switch is not there, the fuel pump control module is what controls the pump. It is back by the tank.

My truck just lost power and died while driving on the highway yesterday. Got a new battery did not do the trick. Truck will turn over but not start, seems it is not getting fuel. Mechanic friend told us to try the fuel pump reset option and we kept pushing the button but not sure how to tell if it is resetting properly or if we need to replace the whole fuel pump relay or where to start with diagnoses issues.

The button should be down if down it is working. Check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it. Also since you replaced battery try resetting security system if no owners manual look online for your vehicle on how to do it.

Also I have read some things about the fuel sensor module malfunctioning being common in an f150. Located near the spare tire, do you know anything about this?

I do not see any tips on this as normally if they go bad most mechanics put a tip in out manual with it. It would need to be scanned for codes by a mechanic to see if it is bad anyhow. If you spray choke cleaner into intake and truck starts it is probably a fuel problem but you would want it scanned prior to putting a module on it just to verify it. They cost anywhere from about $60 to 160 at rock auto, more at a dealer and a little more at a garage.

In the passenger compartment, on the passenger side, below the dash, behind the right kickpanel.

So if you are sitting in the paseenger seat and take your right ankle and move it to the right you'll be kicking the kick panel that you need to remove.

Engine Performance problem
1994 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

i have an automatic 2 wheel drive 1994 ford f150. I was going home one evening when my truck just died on me. I thought of everything it could have been but I just didnt work checked all my fuel pumps, lines, everything. I asked a mechanic buddy of mine from my home town what he thought it was and he said to check the fuel inertia switch, although he couldnt tell me where it was through the phone he told me to go buy a haynes repair manual book. I looked through that book backwards and forwards but never could find it. So could you tell me where miine is located?

If you have a console in the truck, it will be on one side or the other forward nexe to the firewall. If no console, it in the kick panel on on side or the other up next to the firewall.

The truck will not start. When I turn the key on the fuel pumps run for a few seconds and then shut off. I tested voltage, grounds, and resistance at different pins on the EEC computer plug. Everything checked according to fordfuelinjection. Com. When ground to the #6 pin of the EEC test plug the fuel pumps run nonstop. So, I replaced the EEC computer and am having the same result. The fuel pumps continue to shut off and I don't know what else the problem could be. Please advise. Thanks.

Hthe fuel pump is only supposed to run for a few seconds and turn off.

It gets the pressure up and then turns off untill you get a response from the ignition ssytem to turn it back on.

Is the fuel pressure building?

I say no because I can take the fuel line off on top of the tank and it still does the same thing. I read that with the fuel line off it should continue to pump, is that wrong?

Well unles your vehicle has a sensor rigged on the fuel line for pressure that cuts out the relay then no there is no way disconecting the line will do that. It turns on primes the rail and turns off should turn off when you hear the relay click off. Its located near the air cleaner box.
