SOURCE: 2007 mercury milan V6 Car wont start. Jumped it

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: mercury sable starting problem

You need to take off the distributor cap and it is a little plastic coated black box thing that is sorta half moon shaped and wraped around the center shaft of the distributer. Before replacing it take a hair dryer/blower and heat the little black box up to very warm. Replace the distributer cap as quickly as you can and then run and try to start the engine. If it sputters or even starts then that is the culprit. it may even keep running but it will happen again and again so you need a new one before you get stranded some place. I bought mine at a wrecking yard and you do have to buy the hole distributar. They won't sell you just the modualator. It should only cost you 30 to 50 bucks. If they want more then that then lkeep shopping. Mine cost 50 at the one place but they wanted 80. I told them pick a part wanted thirty and I would offer them fifty or wait. They took the 50. If you want a good laugh then call the dealership fo a new one. be sure you are laying down when you call.
You might find one on ebay too but again they are higher most of the time and you have to take your chances and wait for the thing to be shipped. Even if it doesn't sputter or start then it still may be the problem. They can completely go out but heating them sometimes gives them a boost. It is one of the biggest rip offs the auto industery ever came up with to replace a set of 7 dollar points. Let me know how it turns out. I hope I helped you some what, The Raz

Have 1995 Mercury Sable Ls. The car will not start. When turning the key I get nothing no clicking noise lights dim. We tried to jump the car off with jumper cables and it still does not start. Checked...

Check all wires running to battery. Check the battery ground(black) cable for sure. Make sure it is getting a good ground. If necessary unbolt the ground and clean up with a wire brush or wheel.
