    Hi Deborah,

    I believe you are asking about the resetting the fuel pump shut off switch.

    see pages 108-109 (diagram on pg 109) of your owners manual. You can download the manual for free from Fords Owner Support site... or click here to download in pdf format: http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WOW...

    Copied from 108-109 pages:

    The fuel pump shut-off

    switch is located on

    the left side of the

    trunk behind the trunk



    After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not

    start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been

    activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to

    stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has

    been involved in a substantial jolt.

    1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.

    2. Check the fuel system for leaks.

    3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump

    shut-off switch by pushing in the reset button.

    4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a

    few seconds and return the key to the OFF position.

    5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.


    I hope this helps

    98 Mustang Fuel Pump

    There is no reset switch for a fuel pump, there is a inertia switch or rollover switch designed to turn off the fuel pump in the event of an accident or rollover. this forum says its located in the drivers side trunk area and has an access panel, the button needs to be pushed in, if doing this doesn't work then you may need a new fuel pump.
