Sounds like you may have a bad starter relay, possibly shorted out..what you want to do is locate the relay, under hood on one of the inner fenders, follow the positive battery cable to find it.you should only have power from battery cable connection.pull the small red and black wire off, and test for power on that wire with key on, test while wire is fisconnected.you should only have power there when you try to start the engine. Get back to me after you check this

Having a no crank no start so click issue in a 1994 murcery tracer. Need help please.


Do you get a clicking noise or a buzzing noise.

If its a clicking noise then it a power problem (battery, cables)
If it a buzzing noise -- need new solenoid (between battery and starter).

The starter wont stop running after car is started


Can be caused by a few different problems:

1) Ringgear/pinion gear worn, causing them to remain meshed
2) Starter axle shaft worn causing pinion to not retract
3) Electrical fault causing soledoid to remain engaged

First, disconnect main lead on rear of starter (large wire from battery to starter) and try the key, using the test lamp to confirm that the signal wire (small) is only live when the key is in the start position (when key springs back to on, it should go dead) If so, then problem 3 can be ruled out

Remove the starter motor from the engine and inspect the starter pinion gear, check for wear on the pinion gear, if it has scalloped enough to catch and not be able to retract, check ringgear on flywheel.

Inspect pinion axle shaft, depending on starter motor design, it may have multiple axles, the main place to check is where the pinion slides up to engage the ringgear, bad wear on that shaft can cause the pinion to become stuck engaged.

Last test is to fire up the starter out of the car, and see if the pinion fails to retract after the solenoid feed is stopped.

I suggest check the position 17, 20AMP for Cigar Lighter (page 277 and next for FUSES)...

This and other details can find it in your Mercury Tracer Owners Manual.

Hope this help (remember rated this post).
