Question about 1999 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

Battery I have a 1999 mercury mountaineer and today the amp guage just shot up. After that the abs and battery light came on. The car was working fine though and a few miles down the road, the guage went back down but the 4 wheel drive selector light kept blinking every so often. What could be the problem?

Sounds ike my 1999 merc mountaineer wants to start, but then clicking noise. someone says can knock it in place with screwdriver and hammer...is this true?


A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, then the cables, then voltage at the starter. The starter gets voltage from the battery and from the key switch to energize the solenoid.
Fords need at least 10.5 volts and 200 amps to crank the starter. A battery can have a dead cell and show 12 volts but no cranking amps.

1999 CHEVY SILVERADO WARNING LIGHTS KEEP FLASHING


I had something similar happen to my 2006 and it was a short in the fuse box itself. It cost me about $500 in all from the dealer, but you may be able to just get a used one at a junk yard and back then I don't think you have to have the dealer reprogram everything. Good luck.

The abs light came on and air conditioner started blowing hot. After work the batt was dead. Jumped it and guages were dead for about 30 sec. About 10 miles later abs light went off and air got cold again....


It sounds like the engine is running on battery power only.The engine of today`s technology needs the alternator to have enough ignition to run on,lights and computer,etc,will be affected by low voltage,and amps.The alternator is not charging,look for a charging fuse to see if it is blown.If the fuse is fine,replace the alternator,and have the battery recharged on a slow 2 amp charge so it will recover it`s loss of deep cycle amps.This will prolong battery life and alternator.If I can help let me know.Let me know the out come.
