put an OBD-II scanner on there and clear all codes~

The reset button should be on the driver's kick panel...at least it is on Ford trucks of the vintage...crown vic may actually be near the tank or under the backseat~

Thanks. Yes, the switch is in the trunk on the left side. It will have a Red button on the top and yes, it will shut off the fuel pump. The idea it to have and impact switch that shuts the high pressure/high volume fuel pump off in the event of an accident. Pounding on the fender can trip them. I once hit a 5 gallon bucket at highway speed and tripped it.

Thank you to everyone . Reset the fuel shutoff switch. Car fired right up. I guess it's sensitive for a reason. Thank you great site

How do i get the fuel pump relay to pop back up i have a 2008 crown vic

I think you're talking about the Inertia Switch. The Fuel Pump Relay is under the hood and does not "Pop-up". The Inertia Switch can be tripped or caused to Pop-up by rapping it with a small hammer - the button should be down though if you want the fuel pump to run. If what you want is to disable the fuel system, I recommend unplugging the Inertia switch rather than striking it.
