Start with making sure the fuse N (20 AMP_ located in the under hood fuse panel is in place and not blown. if the fuse checks okay then go to the inertia switch and see if you have key on engine cranking power on both wires at the switch. Check this and let me know the results and we can work from there if need be.

The Enfield fuse is good one wire has nine plus volts while cranking the other wire has less than 1 volt
Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Both wires should have battery voltage, unplug it and place a jumper in the connector and then crank it again and see if the pump will run.

I already jumped it with a paperclip it did not work
Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Power to the inertia switch comes from the EEC relay and runs through the inertia switch to the fuel pump relay. What is your voltage at the red wire to the inertia switch with it unplugged?

12 + volts with key on not cranking
Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Okay that indicates you have a large voltage drop, plug it back in and go back to the fuel pump connector and unplug it and with a helper check the cranking voltage on the pink/black power feed wire to the pump.

The highest number I saw on the multimeter was 9 point something
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The car is on jumper cables because the battery died would that have anything to do with voltage drop
Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Not as long as your reading 12 volts on the red wire at the inertia switch, get your battery charged back up and recheck it at both side of the inertia switch and if its still low move to the pink/black at the pump with it unplugged.

Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

I have been paid nothing and you are not charged as well until you rate the service. If you do not need the help I can stop for sure.
