Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar
My sister has a 2001 Mercury Cougar that won't start, I checked the alternator & the starter & they are both good, battery is good, lights are working in car. She said she was driving down the road & her radio stopped working when she turned on her high beams. Has anyone had a problem like this. If so how did you fix it??
This will sound stupid but check to make sure all the bulbs, yes I said bulbs, as in brake and turn signals are the correct bulb. No kidding. I fought a problem like this in my shop for a week on a mustang. It had a wrong brake light bulb. Just a idea. See if it will start by jumping the 2 posts on the starter solenoid under the hood on the inner fender. It has two battery cables going to it. use 2 heavy screw drivers to do this. Do not tough the metal of teh screw drivers. The solenoid could also be bad.
