The manufacturer of Ford's OEM Gas Caps....http://www.stant.com/index.cfm

I think they're the biggest OEM supplier of Gas caps as well.

It will also come on for the inertia switch. If the inertia is switch is activated your truck wouldn't run. In that case all you need to do is reset it, located at the edge of the carpet in passenger foot well.

If interested you can activate it with a small screw driver of your key. Just pop the red plunger up.
