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.

I have a 1991 mercury tracer. It runs good in park but has no power in drive. What could be the problem?


Sounds like a loose connection or a short somewhere in the wiring harness. Exaimine the wiring with a good light.

Ignition turns off immediately after turning. wont hold in run is there an easy fix or bypass? 1991 mercury marquis


They get real sloppy the ignition switches on most older fords.....unhook your battery then put the key in the run position and on the bottom of the steering column there is a small hole that is acceess to the release pin for that ignition swich ..you need a small screwdriver of lung thin punch to push that in and your ignition switch just comes our .
Go to the local wreckers or dealer and get a replacemen ........Keep in mind the key will be different from before so make sure the used one comes with a key

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.
