You need it towed to a repair shop to have it properly diagnosed

If you only have $100.00 forget it & more on to something else

My 1990 mercury cougar wont start

To start the car, the brake pedal must be depressed to activate the brake pedal switch. In my experience, adjusting the switch has not worked. If this switch is the problem, replacing the switch is the fix.
