Question about 2004 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Possible Electrical Short Or Module Malfunction

When my wife starts her 2004 Merc Sable, all of the warning lights in the dash stay on. I've driven the car for a few days as we swapped so she would be safe in my Volvo. The car runs fine and I've checked all of the connections, hoses and everything that is visible and I can find no problems there. I'm thinking that maybe its a malfunction in the car's puter or there's a short somewhere? Electrical problems in cars are not my forte. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

I have this same exact problem in my 2004 Mercury Sable. It seems that it causes scrapping noise in my engine though aswell. I have had it for a few months and I fix it but turning the car off after a minute or two and just restarting it. That seems to fix it but it's progressivly gotten worse.

Have a load test done on the battery for a failing cell. Check the condition and tension of the drive belt.. Head lights suggest a failing battery.

02 Merc Sable loses a little power and oil light flashes


Have you checked the oil level in the engine ?
The oil warning light is for low oil pressure - but it could come on if the engine is low on oil too.

The sideview mirror lights and windows have


I am pretty sure it is the body control module. My 02 sable is currently having a similar issue. On a random day my girlfriend took the car to the store, the car started honking when she went to re-enter the vehicle. never done that before. Later that night the left front turn signal will not shut off. the turn signal light on the dash stays on solid, this morning the bright light indicator was on solid and the turn signals worked perfectly fine until the blinker light eventually went back to on all the time. I disconnect the battery at night or if I am not going to drive it for a few hours. But I am 99% certain it is the BCM causing this.

My car over heats, but i get no warning lights on my dash. i have coolent and oil, but i still over heat.


Hi,

If there are no dashboard/warning indicators in an overheating situation, then the coolant thermal sensor is faulty and needs replacement.

A few things you can try to reduce overheating:
  • remove altogether the thermostat (not applicable in cold weather);
  • hotwire the radiator fan to be always on when engine is running;
  • check the: radiator hoses, radiator, water pump.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I had the brake light switch replaced by a local dealer. Cost was $140 and it fixed the problem. Have driven the car for two weeks since and no lights and all systems normal.
