1996 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles
I hadn't driven the car in awhile. When I tried to start it, it turned over slowly but wouldn't catch. The radiator fan kicked in & ran until the battery was dead. I was unsuccessful at jumping it with a battery charger/starter unit so I disconnected the battery & charged it for several hours. My load tester indicates it has a good charge. Now the key will not turn. Assuming my failed jump didn't fry anything I am guessing there is a reset that must be performed. I don't have the manual to look through so I need some help.
Thanks for your help.
have the same problem?
