Do the safety cut of switches go bad often? I think my husband might have already tried the bypassing of the wires, but I am not sure. The switch did seem to pop up when it wasnt supposed to. We are both totally puzzled over this whole Ford thing. All the switches and relays, etc. We do not have alot of money to try get it diagnosed, and are really in need of a running car. Could it be anything else, fuel pump related, I mean? Does anybody know anything about the black control box in fords?
