what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

Comeing from a cougar expert seeing how I own three mercury dealerships called Holcomb, Holcomb, and Holcomb's if anyone should know the answer to this one it is certainly me. I do all the buying, selling, mechanics myself. Last time I had to fix this for someone I took a mental note. First you are going to have to look on the outside of the vehicle behind the drivers door. This is called a quarter panel but for you lamens it is the fender. You need to look for a round cutout in the rear quarter panel aka Fender. If you will take notice it has a small petrustion that looks like you could stick your finger in it. You will need to pull this hatch open once inside the hatch you will notice another security devise for keeping the full locked in safe. This is a gas cap which leads to a filler neck. You will need to insert gas through this feature and that should take cared of that problem. I am glad I could be of some service if you have any other questions please contact me at one of my many dealerships my number is 501-760-2300 and ask for the main man. David You have been a great pupil and I would love to teach you some more. Thanks

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.

My mercury cougar 2.5L 2002 dont start look like no fuel go to the engine. before check the fuel pump is any fuse o relay can I check?

Check a part called an Inertia switch. Do a Web search for photos and location which is usually in the trunk or in the front by the floor kickpanels. This part has a reset button on it and when pressed it will reconnect the fuelpump power.

the fuel rail has to be bled out. when you run a fuel injected car out of gas sometimes the fuel rail needs to have the air bled out before it will operate properly.

How do you reset the fuel pump shutoff switch 1995

If the Engine Cranks but Does Not Start or Does Not Start After a Collision Fuel Pump Shut-off Switch if the engine cranks but does not start or does not start after a collision, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been triggered. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

Once the shut-off switch is triggered, you must reset the switch by hand before you can start your vehicle. The switch is on the left side of the trunk...
