it hasn't got one of these fancy-shmanzi security enablers, does it? This could have the high-pressure fuel panic button, located drivers footwell which shuts off all fuel on a collision to stop high pressure fuel spray in an accident. These fords are famous for this inconvenience in the name of safety. When you say checked butt off switch, did you mean this 'panic fuel shutoff?' cause this is going to be my only guess, which should have you back up as fuel pressure is restored. perhaps you hit the wrong button.

Check the electric wire coming from the petrol tank that powers the pump in the tank under the bakkie,could be disconnected before it gets to the fuse box

...well maybe, but there is a "panic button"...think that is red and about 1/4" in diameter...may be under the dash on the left side of the kick panel~...you can't miss it~

You need to find your relays...they may be hidden behind the Fuse box. If so..remove the fuse box and make sure all the relays are properly pushed in.


The inertia switch for these Bantams is behind the left side panel on the 'A' pillar . They is a hole in this panel and a button. Press the button in. These bakkies are equipped with the manufacturers PATS security system so there is no need to install another system.
