Question Inertia Fuel Cut-Off switch

Are these common to problems?
My Focus (#2) seems to be touchy.
If the car is running, all you have to do is slightly bump the panel
the reset button is behind, and off goes the engine.

(push the button in, it is all back to normal)

This could just be a bad inertia switch?

It almost sounds as if the switch is not mounted correctly. I had a Pinto that the switch came loose and this would happen. If not it could be a faulty switch.

Yes, the switch on the kick panel.

So if it is not mounted straight up-down it could be an issue?

Ill check it out tomorrow, see if it is looke or crooked, or even upside down lol
