we got a 89 f350 and we went up a huge hill.. hit a massive bump, and the truck stopped working. It was also stuck on the hill, even with clutch in or in neutral. It was icy and was able to push it back down, but once on level land it wouldnt start. I think it may be the fuel pump cuz we dont hear it pressurize when the key is turned over. Any ideas?

You must have knocked the F loose
F=fuel
O=oil
R=reverse
D=drive or dumbass

:cool:

Early injected fords had a safety inertia switch in them. It would shut down the fuel pump, if I remember right, in the case of a hard collision. The switch was usually located under the passenger side interior kick panel. Reset the switch by pressing the button back in on it, like a GFI bathroom outlet.

the fuel kill switches were under the driver side... it was a little box with a button on the top... company has one, whenever you let the e-brake out, it tripped the switch, fecken weird.

inertia switch on my older ranger is on passenger side, top of the floor mat under the heater core. should be around the pass side on your truck

On Fords the fuel cut off switch is in the passengers side kick panel.
Theres a hole you can reach in and push the button.

if it was the fuel shut off switch it would not start at all! it starts on level ground. I''ve got a 89 f350 also and it is very hard to trip the fuel shut off, trust me.

Well if its on the passenger side, whats on the driver side? because the ford at where i work has one on the driver side... its a 1990 2wd.

The switch on 86 and up fullsize broncos and F series is on the drivers side near the peddle assembly, its a red button. Under the pass side kick panel is the reset button for the electronic 4x4 comp, if you have the push button t-case.

Your wrong, the fuel switch is not on the drivers side on ALL F-series.
Maybe on Broncos but not ALL f-series.

My f150 is on the drivers side, rangers are passenger side.
According to all the Chiltons, haynes and ford websites the inetia switch is on the drivers side on full size in these years and as stated passenger on rangers.
If anyone can find different info or pics of a factory installed inertia switch in a different location maybe post it instead of argueing which does not help anyone actually locate the problem.

Ive got a 94 and a 02 sitting in my yard with the switches on the passenger side.
I sold a 93 that had it on the passenger side.
We are talking about the fuel shut off switch right?

They might have changed it but in my 88, 89 parts truck, and my 91 they are all on the drivers side. My 92 that i scrapped i honestly didnt look for it. But i know 87-91 are drivers side for sure.
And he was asking about an 89.

Funny you say that, i saw a carbed 460 in a 87 yesterday that is factory. Were they early 87 only or just certain engines.

check for power at the pump if you have power then change the pump.

...he already fixed it, it was just the little impact switch... pump is fine.
