Question about 1988 Mercury Tracer
OK, first, I think it may be the alternator. If you charge the battery overnight, the engine should run for about an hour before it discharges again.
I don't think the coolant should affect the wiring.
There may be a fuse panel for the high current fuses in the engine compartment. It should be 30 amp or higher.
Does the generator/alternator/battery light come on when the key is in ON position?
What engine? 1.9L or 1.8L?
