Check the coolant level in the radiator when it is cold.
**Actually the check coolant light indicates the reserve is low. When facing the engine with the hood up...look to your left and you should see the tank. Fill that to the fill line and then run the car until the thermostat starts to pull the coolant...add when it gets low and until it stops taking fluid. Do not add directly into the radiator unless the reserve tank is empty.
Check bulbs Check Fuse Check stop light switch
you have a fault code on emission systems
On a ( 1996 ) Mercury Tracer , the " check engine " warning light is at theBOTTOM of your instrument panel under the right hand side of the fuel gauge ( under the " F " )

A fuel cut-out in a Mercury Tracer 93 is a sensor which will check the fuel level or can prevent the flow of fuel and thus a car cannot move. When this happens, the fuel cut out light will come on.Ê
For a 1999 Mercury Tracer : In the passenger compartment fuse panel The panel is labelled " CIGAR " and will be a 20 amp fuse
Assuming it is the same as the 1998 Mercury Tracer : The fog light switch is on the turn signal lever , next to the head light switch * you probably need to have your head lights on low beam
Very few cars have a low coolant light but will have a overheating light. You can be sure it will look like water or a thermometer. Why not just raise the hood and check the coolant level.
There is no change transmission lamp.
it sounds like your primary coolant fan has quit and when you turn your A/C on it causes your secondary coolant fan to turn on and then cools the coolant in your radiator!
Check the brake fluid level in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment ( the brake light also comes on if the parking / emergency brake is applied )
On a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer : The " check gage " light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is too high , the engine oil pressure is too low , or the gas gauge is at or near empty
the brake light switch is just above the brake pedal. I just bought one for my own 97 tracer yesturday and need to install it.
If your 1997 Mercury Tracer has a battery light that blinks on and off while the car is running, it most likely means that the battery is not charging. This could be an issue with your alternator.
You are low on coolant.
Check coolant level in coolant recovery tank and radiator
if coolant is ok!! then check coolant sensor.
If it is just ( 1 ) lower brake light that is not working it is probably the bulb
Because the coolant is low.
This is the coolant level idiot light, Mercury messed up when they designed this and the light goes on when the coolant is well within tolerance. You can either replace the sensor with a new one from ford that has been redesigned, or you can top off the coolant to just at the Max line, or to just a little above, that should turn the light off.
It is possible that a check engine light on a Toyota Highlander will come on if the coolant level is low. Usually, though, there is another light that will come on that says 'low coolant' on some older Toyota's.
The coolant light is supposed to indicate when the coolant level is low. If you're certain that the vehicle coolant level is up, check the electrical connections and finally the sensor.
The leak could come from: hoses, punctured radiator, split gasket...you can put tracer dye in the coolant and search for the leak with a black light after you clean the engine.
Check your coolant first, if it's not low then replace coolant level sensor
On a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer : The " CHECK ENGINE " warning light is just to the left of the battery voltage gauge
