      People around here don't get around much...
      Both my Fords have had this. it's a rollover/crash sensor switch that cuts the pump. Mk2s don't have this though. The fuel pump relay switches off when the engine stops turning as a safety feature.
      If your fuel pump isn't running, the relay, wiring, or pump itself is bad. In some cars, the ECU switches the pump on so the ECU might be at fault as well.

      I remember some jock *******s in high school that had 5.0 mustangs, we would walk through the parking lot and punch the area where that kill switch was when they were in class, then sit and wait to see how long it would talke them to figure it out

      That's a new one on me... Fails have them so they must be good and every car has the same.
      I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

      It's an inertia switch that kills the fuel pump and coil in an accident (basically a ball bearing hitting a t lever). Some are located up on the passenger side foot well (All this refers to older Fords). Our cars do not have these.
