Question about 1998 Mercury Sable
I ocassionally lose my complete electrical output very suddenly where my vehicle just dies instantly,and at other times when the electronic items inside start flashing somewhat weakly and the car loses all power and dies in about a minute, only to get them back sometimes when I have simply just pushed down on the Power Distribution Box to make sure everything was seated good. It will then operate for long periods of time before happening again. I've checked the connection going into the P.D.R.at the main megafuse,as well as the other connections,but can't find anything loose or corroded, and everything appears to be correct. Can't find any loose grounds and a fuse can't blow and then work again. Would a relay be capable of causing this,but still work the rest of the time? Seems to me that since everything electrical on my car is affected (or from what I can tell),and not any certain individual circuits,it has to be something major. Has anyone ever dealt with a problem such as this? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Try changeing the starter and positive battery cable on newer cars the main source of power runs to the starter and is distributed from there
