1991 Mercury Tracer won't start - NEED ELECTRICAL DIAGRAM

My '91 Mercury Tracer won't start whatsoever. It doesn't even try to turn over. For no reason it died then miraculously started three days ago, drove fine all weekend, then died and now won't do ANYTHING. We replaced the battery and still nothing. We've eliminated just about everything from the ingnition coil, starter, etc. The fuse box is reading that I'm only getting power to half the car.

Any ideas? Suggestions? Does anyone know where I can get an electrical diagram? It's not in the owner's manual or general books AutoZone has. HELP!

1993 Mercury Tracer backup lights won't light even after replacement. Must be a fuse. But fuse box deoesn't have a label for the backup lights. Must be connected to another fuse. No owner manual....

Go to and register for free. Registration will give you access to manuals for your car, one of which will have a diagram of the fuse panel with an explanation of each fuse.

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.

Sadly even if you hotwired it you wouldnt be able to drive it far. The steering wheel would lock up and you wouldnt be able to turn. However you can call a locksmith who can cut you a new key usually right in your own driveway. Normally they dont charge that much as long as you dont ask them to come over at this very second.
