Open the "glovebox" storage containment, press the tabs located on each side and allow it to fully open. Locate the inertia switch a Breaker type switch which opens the electrical circuit to the fuel pump On detection of impact! press the switch to reset... Now start the Ford / Rocam. Regards

If the vehicle was in an accident, the impact switch was possible which is located on the left side under the dash activated and switched the fuel pump off. On the left side under the dash there is a hole to gain access to this button. Press the button down and it will click into place. You should be able to start the vehicle
