Good morning,

There is no inertia switch for the fuel pump if that is what you are asking. That is for Fords only.

You have a relay. I attached a diagram of the fuel pump for you to view.

What is the issue with the truck?

Are you ready for this? Okay, my boyfriend broke the key off in the ignition my dad took a pic to try to pick out the broken key and pulled the key forward a little bit which made the electric or the security alarm system go off and so he got that stuck in the ignition. So a friend of mine cut the starter and ignition wires connected them to make a toggle switch and a push button. Then my dad went and put the wires back took the push button and toggle away and then got the key out we raised the key to a different key broken key so it's usable key at this point. It actually is turning the car over but not starting. The only thing I could think of is left to do is something to do with the fuel. I'm not a mechanic and I'm doing this pretty much on my own.

Okay, is there a security light, theft light or a key signal on the dash?

If there is, turn the key to on. See if the lights go out after about 10 seconds. This will tell me if it is a security issue or mechanical issue.

Can you hear the fuel pump run with the key on?

Okay, does the light go out when you turn the key on? That is important. If it does not then it is a security issue.

Okay, you need to test for spark to the plugs to be sure there is spark being sent.

Also, you need to test for fuel pressure.
