Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar
The noise continues even when you stop the car Already changed the hub bearings, made no difference. Doesn't do this all the time.
Well, I would say open the hood and see what is making noise. Not sure what a honning sound is. There may be an electric fan that is on a thermostat and may keep running when the car is off. There may be an electric fuel pump, but I would not think that would keep running.
An old mechanics trick to track down noise is to place a metal rod against the flap in the opening of your ear, and position the rod against moving things to track down the source of mechanical noises. Try something like a 3' brass rod 1/4" diameter from a local hardware store. The noises are transferred by conduction up the rod to your ear, and you can hear the engine quite precisely while it is operating. You could even listen to it when it is off to track down your persistent noise.

I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.
