Question about 2003 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

2003 Mountainer location of OBD2 connection

My 2003 Mercury Mountainer has suddenly shown "check engine soon" light. This was after I had a normal oil change, air filter replacement and tire rotation plus replacing the Torsion bar ( car had 42 thousand plus miles), boot was beginning to crack.
Light continues to stay on, thru over four fill up's. Want to get a OBD2 tester and find out the codes to locate trouble.
Have checked under the dash as well as under the hood and the owners manual, but can not find the contact/connection. Thanks for any help you can give me...WMH

My 2003 Saturn vue just bought it used.Fixed lots of normal things Already. but check engine light stays on.security light on when cuts off.Driving.change oil soon. Already done.confused.worried


You need to get someone who has an OBD2 scanner to plug into the diagnostic link and see what the computer is saying the problem is. Sounds like you have an electrical short, but without a scanner, it could be many things and you would be guessing and searching like a needle in a hay stack.

The brake lights on my 2002 Mountainer will not go off


If your brake lights will not turn off, check it this way-Pull UP on the brake pedal. If the lights go off, you need to adjust the stop light switch, which is mounted on the upper brake pedal (it has an electrical plug in attached to it)

If you are referring to the Check Engine light then this indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. The fault code that has been set by the ECU will tell you where to look for the problem. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry, but do have this looked into. If you are referring to the oil pressure light stop driving the car until you get this repaired as it may be serious.

I have a ford transit 02 plate, with no user manual. today a indicator came on displaying the oil sign with a spanner next to it. is this a service light as the normal oil light was ok and didnt light up


Sounds like a service engine soon light. Check owners manual for reset instructions. On our 99 Mercury , you had to push a combination of buttons on the trip computer / fuel economy select buton.

Engine light comes on, computer resets but comes


drop in to autozone they will scan the code and let you know what it is. i highly doubt the clicking noise is related to light. if you have kids they may have dropped something into the vents... or something has fallen in.

Unable to communicat to the OBD2 for a 1999 Nissan Altima


Up to 99 or 2000 model maxima's arent OBD II. There is a OBD I connector located behind the fuse box cover inside the car. It is a grey connector.

Service Engine Soon Light


On all cars and trucks that are 1996 or newer they have a system called obd2 and the computer monitors anything thats plugged into it like sensors. The light is on because your computer has found a problem with 1 or more of them. If you want to know what area is having a problem you need to have the codes read by a obd2 scanner or code reader some auto part stores do this for free or oil
change store or mechanic shop
