Headlight switch. Very common on these cars. The knobb that you pull to the left of the steering wheel is the switch that needs replacing. Make sure that the harness on the back isn't melting. This happens on car with factory fog lights or cars that had aftermarket fogs installed without a relay. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 mercury cougar and my odometer stoped wporing so i got two off wrecked cars and it still will not work can it be the wires to the odometer


If your 95 XR7 odometer stopped working the most common problem is the plastic gears. They get so hot the surface shows bubbles that weaken the gears and eventually cause the gear or gears to break and the odometer stops working. The odometer part of the speedodometer has a small electric motor which drives a 16 tooth cam gear also called carrier gear (POD) which then drives a 20 tooth internediate gear which drives the odometer and trip odometer. These 2 gears need to be replaced. I also have a 95 XR7 and had the same problem and I got the replacement gears and did it myself. If you go to www.odometergears.com they have picture instructions and you can also order your replacement gears.
