Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
Hey it sounds like either a battery needs to be replaced, also If the car has an alarm, does the alarm use a key-fob. If you have the key-fob be sure to deactivate the alarm before you start the car. If you don't have the fob than you need to do a couple things, first try and find a valet switch, it is either a button or switch on the drivers side up underneath the dashboard, this deactivates the alarm, than give it a try, if that does not work disconnect one of the terminals of the battery, than turn the key to the on position, reconnect the battery, than try to start the car. If this does not work look at getting the battery tested for CCA, to make sure it has the amps to start the car.
Hope that helps
