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.

SOURCE: Turn signal stopped working 1990 Mercury Cougar

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

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

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.

I have 2000 mercury cougar the clutch just started where i can let clutch out all the way dont even stall out how do i check fluild in it


If the fluid was low the clutch pedal would go to the floor and stay there, so that is not the problem. You most likely have a worn out clutch, completely worn out. The clutch fluid reservoir is under the hood on the firewall next to the power brake vacuum booster.

Noise when making a slow speed tight turn. 1999 mercury cougar already replaced right front wheel bearing


noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.

I am working on a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the hood latch won't release when the handle is pulled. I can hear something moving under the front of the hood when the lever is pulled but nothing happens. ...


yes you have to go into the chamber from underneath with a crow bar or similar tool to release the hood latch. once opened check the cable and the latch and with a little luck a few squirts of WD40 is all that will be needed.
