when the button is pressed down. the system should be working normally. you should have no reason to "reset" the inertia switch, unless you have jumped the car in the air, been in an accident, or hit the switch with a hammer.

how about you start off by telling us what is wrong with your car. what makes you think that your inertia switch is bad?

anyone else replying to this thread is taking up pointless space and wasting their time... Until the OP posts what his problem is... this thread is utterly pointless

Well, it could go bad. You need to check continuity, and check for voltage at the switch.

I tripped the inertia switch on my Lincoln Mark VII (virtually the same vehicle mechanically as 86-93 Mustang) when I repaired my rear cowl. The repair involved a whole lot of hammering right over the switch. When I was done, no start. Hotwired the fuel pump relay, started right up. Checked the inertia switch, sure enough it was tripped.

At Menards a guy had the trunk of his Gran Marquis stuffed to the gills with stuff like plywood and 2x4s. When I came out he was spraying starting fluid into the air cleaner and it was firing. I walked over, pushed the switch, it started right up.

It might check out fine when the car is sitting still. The problem is when you're driving & they get shook up a little. They get over senitive sometimes when they're old/bad. That's how mine was.

Fuel pump running? If not, hotwire it. If it starts, work backwards from relay.
