Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
My 1999 cougar dies while im driving. It blows a 20 amp fuse located in the fuse box under the hood... i replaced the fuse and it lasted 2 months..now it wont last 2 minutes.. i know it has something to do with the factory alarm or ignition having a short and i would like to know how to find the short myself..is this possible? if so how do i do it and what tools will it require?
If it is a short, you can lift the carpets in the trunk, or remove the front bucket seats and lift the carpets in the interior. it may also be a bad voltage regulator in your alternator, in which case you will need a new alternator. you can test your voltage with a voltometer, and see if your alternator is producing more than say 15 volts while running.

The main ABS/Traction Control fuse (same systems) is located under the hood in the power distribution box on the drivers side, the fuse u want to check is a large maxi fuse #51 a 60 Amp Yellow fuse.
