Key broke I off in the ignition of my 99 mercury tracer how do I manually unlock steering column?


You can't There is a pin that engages to lock the steering column that is activated by the turn of the cylinder...You must remove the steering wheel ( a big task considering you have airbags) to disengage the locking mechanism and replace the cylinder...You are best to get a locksmith that deals with automobiles.. They have tools that can extract a broken key...It is far better than having the steering wheel and locking mechanism removed. (It is not cheap!()

Coolent fan runs all the time mercury tracer 1995


If the car has sat over night and when you turn on the ignition, if the fas run from the point the motor starts, then they are not on from overheating and this usually means a bad coolant temperature sensor or temp switch.

How do I switch my broken ignition in my car to a flip switch ignition


Why don't you just buy a new ignition switch and put it back together the way it was originally designed instead of "rigging" something that will probably end up burning your car to the ground?

The entire switch, tumbler and mounting bracket assembly is available from AutoZone. 1997 Mercury Tracer Ignition Switch

Looking for the starter relay in a 1998 tracer


1998 Mercury Tracer is equipped only with a 2.0L MFI SOHC SPI engine (Multiport Fuel Injection, Single OverHead Cam, Split Port Induction). This vehicle does not use a starter relay. Power from the ignition switch goes through the Clutch Switch (manual transmission) or the Neutral Safety Switch (automatic transmission) then directly to the solenoid at the starter. The solenoid is serviced only as part of the starter assembly. (SEE PICTURE)

My 1991 Mercury Tracer won't start when I turn the key. No sound at all. The lights go on and my radio works.


drop the steering column and see if the ignition switch has come apart, very common and had a recall for it. You can also call the ford dealer and give then the cars VIN and they can run it and see if any recalls are open and need to be done.
