Arlington, MA

my vehicle was hit in the parking lot at work and the lense on the driver's side rear light was cracked. i went to the local gas station to have the bulb replaced only to find that due to torrential rains, some water had seeped into the crack and the bulb had blown. replaced bulb and within two days the bulb was out again. i only noticed this because when i got into my vehicle to run to the store, my gear shift was stuck. i read the maintenance manual that came with my tracer and used the shift override button. i then took the vehicle back to the garage and ordered a rear light unit. this unit was replaced last friday august 25, 2000 and on monday, august 28, when going out on my lunh hour i found that the shift was again stuck, i pulled the fuse and, of course, the fuse was blown. that evening i took the car to the garage since i then noticed that i not only had a gear shift that was stuck, no rear lights, no interior panel lights and no lights on the shift panel. if i hadn't left work late, i probably would have been rear-ended by another car since i had no brake lights. i had difficulting getting the car into gear in the dark parking garage without the gear shift lights. this problem has made me very uneasy driving this vehicle around and i'm quite concerned about driving my children any where in this car. has this happened to other mercury tracers??? if so, has there been a recall for any electrical problems? please advise.
