Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

2 Answers

Sears did a computer eval on our car and gave us codes only

They hand wrote the codes and said to google them to find out what they mean. I did that and am not able to find out what is wrong with the car. 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 6 cyl. Computer codes given are: PO155, P1132, PO141, PO161, PO135, P1152. I would love the site to look these up. Do you know where I can get the answers? If not do you know the answers? Thanks CSF Litchfield, Maine

    Dear countrycurt0,

    I don't know how this site works but I just now checked my responses. I have not rated anyone. Somebody else must have if that is possible. I am thankful for anyone that takes time out of their life to help someone else. No matter what the outcome. I am sorry that someone did this to you. I will try your site. I never even tried the wrong one. Thank You for your help. I will fix the rating if I am able since I didn't do it to begin with.

    God Bless

    Make that

  • Curt Downs Nov 15, 2008

    I am not sure why you gave me an 'inappropriate' rating. You asked for a site where u could look up the diagnostic trouble codes, and that's what I gave you. If you are having trouble with the site. let me know. I gave u the wrong site at 1st, but sent the correct one within a couple of minutes, hope u will consider changing the rating, or let me know why u felt it was inappropriate.

  • Curt Downs Nov 17, 2008

    You requested a site to look up codes, the one I use is You said u would 'love the site to look these up', Please change the rating, as 'inappropriate' is an inappropriate rating. This is a free service, all we have to indicate our track record of answers (and our time spent answering and researching info), is the rating of the asker, more than half of which don't take the time to rate our response. So, how about rating chev junk, he gave u the code descriptions, and how about changing my rating to something more appropriate, we would like to help again if u need us.

  • Curt Downs Nov 22, 2008

    thank you VERY much for fixing the rating mix up. Let me know if u need any more help on the cougar problem (is it resolved?). Let me know if I can help out now or later. Curt

Touble codes po506d p1400 on my 2007 izusu i290 what do they mean

the first one is wrong, wrote down wrong.
P0506 is idle speed too low. (vast causes.)
Cold Start Emission Reduction Control System
1400s are caused by 506s. so 506s is it.

id not take a kid toy to zoned, but what eva.
they mean what the FSM says they mean,, factory serv. manual
did you even try to google them/?

so why is engine idle too low.
  1. Gross misire.
  2. too lean or too rich fuel mix.
  3. ISC stuck closed.
  4. EGR valve stuck open,.
  5. bad spark plugs ,ever consider doing a full 60k mile tune up?
  6. air leaks to the induction on MAF based engines,
  7. low compression on one or more cylinders.
  8. i can list 41 more. but why? we just do the test , quickly and cause is found.

the real scan tool can monitor many live engine parameters.
and see if all is working good. we do that, first.
eg: are all sensors reading right?

B1395 code firing loops interconnection fault what does it mean

gee, you didnt say which controller gave that.
Air bag
A/t controller
eg; who told you that, or what, and more important where where you plugged in? DCL cab 16pins?

its in the FSM, the factory book, every step, to the solution
or here.

working without book on your car, is very hard.
each car has differences, major.
the old days of near same motor and carb, are gone.
the B1xx, the 1 means manufacture specific code.
that too means, its only in the FSM>
in fact that code is no good, google has zero hits.
that cries, WRONG code.

What does diagnostic code 62AAA mean?

Try Google

Never saw a code like that

Doesn't look right & it has to
be manufacture specific & a body
or ECU (computer) code

I think your best with a professional scan tool ,
to get enhanced euro codes,not generic

That is no generic code

1997 getting code P1776 & PO700 What does this mean

The code 700 is a notice that there is a problem with the trans control module, and code 1776 could be a problem with the low-reverse solenoid inside the trans. Code 1776 can trigger the code 700.
The solenoid would need to be tested.
