How often do these things just switch off or need to be reset. I went to the store today and the truck was running fine, then come out and no start. so i look in the haynes manual do some diagnostics and what not, everything checks out fine so i do the reset thing and bam it starts up? what can cause this? i thought that was if the truck flipped or whatever so it wouldnt dump fuel out. so does this mean the switch is going bad or what?

Has it only done it once? If so, i don't think i woudl worry about it. Worse case is that you'd have to jumper the switch until you got a new one. Not sure how to test it. Anyone have any ideas?

Could it be that someone "tapped" into you in the parking lot while you went inside????

naw i dont think so. would that cause it. i called ford and they said a bad fuel filter could cause it but i cant see how. all i know is it wouldnt start, and then i popped that up it started then died, and i pushed it in and it started up. i came to work and havent looked at it since i am hoping i make it home.

Not possible, no one rides in the passenger side. well i went and it started fine. i cant tell if someone bumped it or not. but it is working at the moment.

I was also gonna say maybe somebody bumped you. Is there any chance you kicked it getting out of the Bronco?

93 and up i believe are on the passenger side, under the kick panel.

It's main priority is to cut power to the fuel pump upon impact, i would vote that someone bumped you just enough not to damage your bumpers, but enough to make the switch do it's job

I just got this mental image of a guy bumping the Bronco while it's innocently sitting there idling and the look of puzzlement on his face when the truck just shuts off. :toothless

Now that you mention it, there was an army fukker that was really eager to help out. he wasnt there when i went in. maybe that ass hat hit the ole bronco. but shit there is so much damn body damage that i cant tell. asshole. its alright though he was in a jeep i will be pulling him out of the ditch sooner or later

I'd bet against the bump in the parking lot theory. I've hit a lot of stuff with my bronco and never tripped the switch. My old rangers switch just randomly switched off one day, so I think it's just old age
