Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
The dash light indicating that my power train has a problem came on yesterday. The car would start and shut off immediately. Normal?
You have a few options. The car needs a scan to tell you what is wrong. Your options are who and how you get this service. Since the car does not move, you need to either have someone tow it in or buy a scanner and do it yourself.
There are many possibilities and it is costly to guess. Sounds like the car is losing a signal from another sensor and shutting down. Could be a weak fuel pump which could be tested with a pressure gauge.
Please rate my info.

SOURCE: 2001 Sable will not start
I had the same problem, does the theft light go on, if so as it was with my car, the Key has a computer chip in it and it may be shot. I used the second key and it started right up

you have either the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is turned all the way up or a sticking door ajar switch.
Does the door ajar light in instrument cluster stay on?
If so then you can shoot some WD-40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close them firmly a few times and this will usually unstick them.

Take your chipped key in your driver side door lock. Turn in left and then right then left again. This should get it out of valet mode unless there is a button on the bottom of the dash. Your vehicle seems to be in valet mode which is why it is shutting down on you.
