There are a lot of place I looked at that people say Ford is the only manufacturer that has them They are mistaken ..click on the images so you can see them However..your question, the inertia switch does not cut power to the fuel pump, it doesn't work that way, an impact equal to that which will deploy air bags shuts off fuel to help prevent fire
