Question about 1984 Mercury Cougar
The car would not start it just made a clicking noise around the regulator. I tried to jump the car got it started but the lights started flashing. they would stop when I pushed on the breaks. the only wayl they would stop is when I disconnected the battery.

Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.

SOURCE: 1999 mercury cougar wont start
clicking usually sounds like a starter sometiimes when they start going bad it gets stuck that's why u only hear clicking, try tapping it with a steel bar or something it worked for me wen my car was doing that, and what u mentioned about the battery it might be that is not holding charge even if u try jump starting it

Hi I'm litoshop if you just put in a new tranny first check the neutral switch that is correctly adjusted then check if the starter is correctly installed check the thin wire that comes from the ignition switch and if everything looks ok then try to start the motor directly on the starter good luck if this information has been helpful please let us know thank you
