I have a 99. On my car, there is a small notch in the center console cover on the bottom right, just by the front of the passenger seat. Stick a screwdriver in there and move the point backwards to trip the release.

SOURCE: 1995 mercury mystique starter replacement process?

At first, it looks like an impossible task, however if you start by removing the positive battery cable, then unplug mass air flow sensor, carefully remove air filter box and its components from the throttle body. from there you should be able to see the starter better and have more room to work and get it out. You can take the battery right out if you want a little more working space for your elbows. take the wires off the solenoid, sometimes the old studs of solenoid will break due to corrosion. remove the two 13mm bolts that hold the startersome models have one at the bottom also that you will need to access from the bottom side.

I have a 2000 mercury cougar and my car key will not come out of the ignition switch! is there a fuse that could have went bad and locked the key into place?


This is an alignment problem with the Gearshift. If you have a trigger in the shifthead, try starting and moving the car into Neutral. Then shift the gearshift into Park and make sure the trigger on the gearshift sets when you put it into Park. Now turn off the car and try removing the key again.

If this does not work for you, there is an interlock switch on the brake pedal lever. Usually this switch will prevent starting if it is out of alignment or broken. But you may have moved it enough to throw the other controls off. If no success, then you may need a new shift cable or adjustment in the shift cable.

Okay, my boyfriend owns a 2000 ford f-250 super duty and your prolly wondering as to why im asking about this instead of him ... well im more mechanically inclined then he is lol funny huh... okay heres...


It sounds like the shift tube bushings are worn out. There are usually 2 u shaped clamps that have nylon bushings that hold the shift tube to the steering clumn. If loose, that throws off the shift position, could be btween 2 gears at once, and throws off the park - neutral safety switch. Fix that first.

2003 Rendezvous doesn't start reliably. When it won't, only thing (other than when it decides to start on its own) that works is to jiggle the gearshift while turning the key. It's getting worse though....


It is likely the neutral saftey switch. This switch prevents the starting the engine in gear. Wiggling the shift lever enables the defective switch. Included is a typical wiring diagram showing the switch in the electrical circuit.

Gearshift selector problem


The gear selector switch is either out of adjustment or it is bad. Loosen the two bolts holding the gear selector in place and turn it slightly to see if the display stops flashing. You will have to manually shift the transmission lever at the switch into neutral, and then turn the switch until the display says neutral. Tighten the bolts and then check all gears. It's also possible the shift cable could also be out of adjustment. Does the display change if you simply wiggle the gear selector lever?
