Tip & How-To about 2002 Mercury Villager
I am not 100% sure of this fix for all Villagers, but, I had for sometime a sometimes intermittant electrical problem it would come and go with no particular method to its madness, it effected various components in the Van, one day it might be my wipers door locks, or windows etc. even the starting system, then one day I got what looked like a complete disconnect from the electrical systems, nothing worked , no lights, no horn, no clicking relays, no dash lights, no power to the fuses, no ignition switch nada, as it turns out there in a part of the Positive post that has a Red protective cap over the post, with wires coming out of it, well it appears that it can develope a disconnect to a point where no current passes through it and it is quite invisable to the naked eye, I took the Red cover apart conected it directly to the bolt on the POSitive post and everything started working and knock on wood its been two weeks without a problem, just thought I would toss that out there.
