Question about 1989 Mercury Tracer
Where do I find the fuel cut off switch in a mercury tracer? Does anyone have a picture of where it is?
Your owner manual will tell you.
here is for 96 tracer. don't have 89 but suspect same place in trunk.
In the event of a collision, the electrical contacts in the IFS switch open and the fuel pump (9350) automatically shuts off. The fuel pump will shut off even if the engine (6007) does not stop running. The engine, however, will stop a few seconds after the fuel pump stops. It is not possible to restart the engine until the IFS switch is manually reset. The IFS switch is located on the RH side of the luggage compartment. Access is gained through a hole in the luggage compartment back lower trim cover (40374).
To reset the IFS switch, depress the button on top of the IFS switch.

One of two places. Look in trunk bolted to fender well, you will have to pull back carpet. OR On passenger side kick panel under dash. Basiclly if you were sitting in pass seat it would be right next your right foot again pull back carpet.
either place the switch will be a push/reset button.

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.

Both tanks have their own pumps in it, one doesn't have to be working for the other to work. The fuel cut off switch is on the passenger side kick panel (where the front passengers right foot would rest). I'm not 100% sure where the relay is located on your truck but i think it is in the under hood fuse block. Are you sure it's a fuel delivery issue? Have you checked fuel pressure? Are you getting spark? Do you hear the fuel pump come on? If you've determined it is a fuel delivery problem and can't hear the pump turn on, using a digital voltmeter measure the voltage between the two thicker wires on the fuel pump connector. You should have battery voltage for a few seconds after the key is turned on and while cranking. If you don't, check the black wire for a good ground with an ohmmeter. If that's good you'll have to start tracing the power wire back and determine the fault.
