Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

If your confident the fuel pump is not spinning then use a test light and check for power on both sides of the inertia fuel cutoff switch while cranking the engine. If power present on both sides then replace the fuel pump. The switch is located behind the passenger side kick panel. If no power let me know and we can proceed from there.

Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 2 years ago

If you are cycling the key to on the power will only be there for 1 second. This is the normal time out for the relay with no rpm indicated. Please check again and watch for brief one second power or continuous while cranking the engine. Also make sure you are on the pink/black wire

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
