Exclamation Need help with a 93 escort 1.9L

I'm trying to get a 93 escort 1.9l running again. The car will start and run as long as the key is in the start posistion, but as soon as you put it in the run position it dies. There is no noise from the fuel pump, but there is fuel in the rail. The filter is clean, and I ran battery power and ground directly to pump and the pump runs and puts out good pressure. All relays and fuses are good. The fuel shut off switch tested good, as well. I messed with the ignition switch and it started working but then a few hours later it stoped. replaced the switch but still nothing. Ran jumpers to the fuel pump to make it run and then started car but it still would not stay running in the run position. Need help to figure this out car needs to be running tonight.

Just the fuel cut off light. Car is non obd II and I don't have a way to pull any codes. So far it has me, my dad, and his friend, who owns his mechanic shop stumped. Only thing we can think of is that the replacement ignition switch isn't good. Gonna excahnge it for another one. If that doesn't work I'll have to take to the pro's to sort out.

OBD 1 reader is 30 bux, but you can use a paperclip and watch the check engine light flash if you want,LOL. Other than the wiring to the ignition switch being faulty, I would recommend maybe setting up a push button start, with a seperate accessories on/off toggle.

Sorry I didn't post an update sooner, but I did find the culprit a few days ago. There is actually a breaker underneath the dash, that was tripped. It's not in any wiring diagrams that I could find, and the mechanic that was tryin to help me said there was nothing about it in his computer data base either. I was about to give up then gave one last look under the dash and noticed a fuse looking thing thing with a button on it. Pulled it and it looked ok, so i put it back in, pressed the button, and the car started right up. lol, I felt like an idiot.
