FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
This device stops the electric fuel pump from
sending fuel to the engine when your vehicle has had a
substantial jolt. After an accident, if the engine
cranks but does not start, this switch may have been
activated. The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in
the driver’s footwell.
CHANGING THE TIRES
Your vehicle is equipped with either a temporary spare tire
(with jack and tools) or a temporary mobility kit, which is
located under the carpeted floor panel in the trunk. The
temporary mobility kit contains a sealing compound
(seals most punctures caused by nails or similar objects)
and an air compressor to re-inflate the tire. Do not attempt
to use this kit to repair large punctures or damage to the
tire’s sidewall and/or wheel. The mobility kit provides
temporary sealing that will allow you to drive up to 120
miles at a maximum speed of 50 mph. After sealant use,
the Tire Pressure Monitor System sensor and valve stem
on the affected wheel must be replaced by an authorized
Ford dealer. NOTE The sealant canister repairs only
one tire. See your authorized dealer for replacement
canisters. For complete details on how to change your
tire or how to use the temporary mobility kit, please
refer to the Roadside Emergencies chapter in your
Owner’s Guide.
