Question about 1991 Mercury Tracer

1 Answer

Ignition We have a 1991 Mercury Tracer that we lost the keys for and we've tried the opening the panel and using the 'screwdriver method' but that doesn't work. We want to hotwire the car so that we can drive it to a mechanic but don't know which wires to use and can't find a diagram anywhere that says which ones are the 'on' wires. Can you help?

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.
