Under your hood you will be looking for a main fuse block. It is a small, fairly accesible block that is about 8" x 4". The box will have tabs on it that have pull or push printed into the plastic. Do as read, and pop cover off. Only problem with the wonderful world of Ford (Mercury is made by Ford) is they never index the location of the fuses and relays. Either way...the relay is under that panel. Without a diagragm you can check by having someone turn the car over to the "start" position and put your hand over the relays until you feel the one that clicks at the time of cranking. Don't let the clicking of the fuel pump relay fool you....that will click when the key is in the "on" position

I replaced the starter on a 1994 Mercury Tracer now I am getting a continuous hot feed when the key is in the on position. Need help troubleshooting the problem

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 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 should only have power there when you try to start the engine. Get back to me after you check this

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)
