Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
Battery dead, charge it, car started up, next morning dead battery again and gas peddle was frozen, it wouldn't push in at all
The cable might be pinched but it is more likely the fuel cable is frayed and caught in the cable casing preventing it from moving. I would check under the pedal and make sure nothing rolled under it. I would check the throtle on the other end and see if it moves by hand. If it does then the cable is being prevented from moving and you need to figure out why. It is very unlikely the cable is frozen since it should never get water on it.
Sounds like the battery might be dead. Charge it up and disconnect the post and see if it holds a charge all night. If it does then your car is draining the battery while it is parked. If it doesn't the battery is dead and needs replacing.
