Default Inertia switch...

hi all. i'm working on a 1998 E350 with no owners manual and i can't for the life of me find anything on here OR google that will tell me the location of this switch.

alternatively i would like to know which of the relays is the fuel pump relay.

they are in a ] shape and if looking straight down at them from the front there are two on top, one in the middle on left side, and two on the bottom.

lets number them 1 through 5 going clockwise.

can someone please help me with both inertia switch locale and fuel pump relay locale!


edit: 5.4 v8 to the best of my knowledge.

The inertia switch should be located at the passenger side kick panel up at the top of the plastic covering and just behind the top edge. You may not be able to see it , but you can feel it if you run your fingers over the top edge.

You can locate the fuel pump relay by having someone turn on the ignition switch while you are outside in front of the engine compartment . The relay will click when the key is turned on , run for two seconds and click again as long as you don't try to start the vehicle. You can do this with a few seconds delay between attempts as often as needed to locate the relay. It's that easy.
