First.. Hit the steering wheel/horn, see if it stops, even momentarily, or just once. If it does, you found the problem. It's in the steering wheel. You'll need a owners manual. To find a owners manual. Go to mercury.com/ownersmanual.
In general terms, you would remove the front wheels, remove the retainer clip or lock for each pin, and drive the pins out with a brass punch or other tool. Then the bushings can be replaced.
I would suggest getting a repair manual for the car or for that era since each make is different. Sometimes a special puller is needed.
this is the only site i could find with a wiring code, now i'm not sure it is right but let me know and i will see if i can find something on some of my old papers. but will need the serial number. http://www.maxrules.com/fixmercwiringcodes.html
Hi, I see that you are in a chat now, and hopefully you will get the problem solved. If not, I have some experience with the PATS system. The problem is usually one of getting the tranceiver to see the pellet in the key. This assumes you have a key with a pellet that has been programmed for the car. What I have done successfully in the past is to remove the clamshell from the steering column, remove the tranceiver ring from the key barrel, and place the key in the middle of the tranceiver ring. I then tape up the ring with the key in it and place it in the free space inside the clamshell. I then remove the pellet from the other key (PATS will not work if it sees more than one pellet) and make regular hardware store copies of the other key. The PATS system is effectively bypassed, as it always sees the pellet in the steering column. Let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
