SENSOR LOCATIONS

1988 Mercury Marquis

Electrical problem
1988 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 139000 miles

We have stripped an 88 Mercury Marquis to enter in a demolition derby. We've been told it has a computer and sensors that could shut engine down during an impact or overheating or pressure, etc. Obviously there will be many impacts. Also would assume there are sensors that may shut engine down such as water overheating or engine oil pressure and heat? What sensors are on this car that could shut the engine down. (We already have bypassed the trunk sensor that shuts down the fuel pump) We need to dismantle all that could be affected by impacts or heat or pressure or ? We need to know the physiclal locations. Is there a schematic or detailed description of these sensors, etc?
