It shouldn't go on and still start as I understand it. The fuel pump inertia switch it designed to shut the fuel pump off in case of a fuel leak or an accident. Inside the switch is a ball that is held magnetly rolls forward and engages a swith to stop fuel flow. It can be reset by by a button the top of the switch. It is located in the left rear of the trunk compartment.

if you are referring to a warning light on the dash that is for the fuel cutoff, then it means the fuel cutout switch located in the luggage compartment on the right side is tripped.

is the cutoff switch a normally open or normally closed switch ? If it a normally closed switch as it should be then the switch will need to activate with the ignition in order to supply fuel. There could be a problem with the fuel cutoff relay or a fuse. Also if you are using a non factory key then this might also happen.

A fuel cut-out in a Mercury Tracer 93 is a sensor which will check the fuel level or can prevent the flow of fuel and thus a car cannot move. When this happens, the fuel cut out light will come on.Ê
