    I have just replaced the battery in fall of 2008, and just repalced starter in my 2002 mercury mountaineer, which it was not, and it still will not start. It was running fine, then I parked it, when I went to start it up 10 minutes later it would not start.

Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.

    Try the starter, if you can find where it is tap it gently with a hammer. You might have a bad spot on the starter which will not allow the car to crank. If this is the case then you should obviously change the starter. We have to try and elimiate all the possibilities, it could be a bad cylinder where you put the key in which is not making contact, bad starter, or perhaps an electrical connection which is bad on the starter, you can also check those, make sure there is no corrosion on the contact points.

Its a possibility but I would think the fuel pump? That's where I would start. If it turns but doesn't crank then your most likely not getting gas.

2002 mercury mountaineer just dies while driving it has a brand new battery everything works but doesn't make a noise while turning ignition key


Have you tested for a failed starter or it's solenoid ,
after it stops & you have nothing ?

Could be your loosing throttle position, if a sensor or
ignition coil is bad,that will shut it down

Check for OBD Codes

Engine turns but wont start


check the key that year modle has a chip in the key and if it was around something magnetic it could have lost it's programing. If that is not it the there is a fuel rail with what looks like a air pressure valve. turn the key on and press that valve if fuel sprays out it is your key. If fuel doesn't spray the it is your pump
