What is the Location of the Fuel Pump Relay on a Ford Pickup?

by Farrah Jean

The fuel pump relay, a small electric unit which automatically opens and closes the fuel pump valve, controls the fuel intake of a Ford pickup.

Location

The fuel pump relay of a Ford pickup, also known as the fuel shut off switch, is located in the passenger foot well, behind the behind the kick panel and inside the fuse panel.

Purpose

In addition to controlling the flow of fuel to the engine, the relay also keeps the electric fuel pump from functioning after a collision, minimizing the chance of fire igniting after an accident.

Prevention/Solution

After a collision, the fuel pump relay switch is automatically activated, preventing the vehicle from cranking. The fuel reset indicator will be lit on the instrument panel. Once it has been reset, the car will start.
