This is my original question...
I have a 1989 Mercury Tracer. It has been an awesome car up to this point. A few days ago it died in the middle of the road. I have replaced the fuel pump already. However it is not getting electricity to the new pump. I have spent 2 whole days looking for the relay. Can someone please help me? I have searched the engine compartment, fuse panel area, and in the center area of the dashboard. Could it be anywhere else? I truly appreciate any help offered.
I was offered this solution...
(I found an image of the fuel pump relay on this very site, here's the address:
It could also be the fuel pump shut-off switch (inertia switch).
The Inertia Fuel shut-off (IFS) switch must be manually reset.
The IFS switch is located on the RH side of the luggage compartment. Access is gained through a hole in the luggage compartment back lower trim cover
To reset the IFS switch, depress the button on top of the IFS switch.)
I had seen this posting prior to asking my question. However, this information is incorrect. I have completely taken apart the underside of the dash. It is not located where this diagram indicates. Please HELP!!!!
