2005 Ford Escape, changed spark plugs,

inertia switch,  and power in at the fuel

My vote is for the control module being toast or perhaps a poor ground or corrosion on the terminals. Have you already tried to clean the contacts?

Cleaned,the contacts....another test I did was to measure voltage at the fuel pump...with the connector unplugged, I get battery voltage out of the two top pins, nothing from the bottom two..key on, the voltage drops...

The voltage dropped to less than a volt on that test
