    My daughter drives a 2003 Mercury Sable and keeps losing power. The battery tests ok, she has had at a mechanic twice and they can't find anything wrong. It will just die, no power, lights, anything, while she is driving, or it won't start, no lights, no power locks, nothing will work. If she keeps trying it wil eventually start.

Changed alternator, belt and battery on 01 sable ls after driving for a short time air bag light and gas light come on and car

First thing is to see if the battery needs charging. If it has a full or near full charge, then maybe a loose or corroded battery cable connection is making the car seem dead..
You have to get the engine cranking at a normal rate or speed, to first see if it will start. If you get it cranking and it won't start, see if your fuel pump has failed. Best way to check that is to have the fuel pressure tested. No fuel pressure from a failed fuel pump is a major cause of a 'no start' condition.

Why does the head light flick while driving and the battery light flicker

Your alternator is not properly charging. This could be from a variety of reasons including a loose belt, so get it checked out soon. Hope this helps.

2001 mercury sable will run but won't charge and no batttery indicator light in dash will not light

If it runs you have one of 2 issues. 1. The battery is bad and the alternator isn't able to keep it charged (you will have to jump start it every time the motor is shut off). 2. Your alternator is bad and the battery is running the car (when battery is drained car will stop running) which is my belief as the battery light only comes on when the alternator isnt charging. Have the charging system tested at your local AutoZone/Advanced Auto parts store they normally do it for free.

What dose the idoit light that looks like a gear with a ! mark in the center of it mean? 2001 merc sable

It means there is a transmission electrical problem. There should be a transmission trouble code stored that will point you in the right direction.This will not always turn on the check engine light.
