Which engine do you have? if you have a v6 the alternator is located on the passenger side of the engine in the lower rear corner. there is also a recall on that in regards to the voltage sensing system google mercury alternator recall, also make sure the connectors on the alernator are good and tight check the terminals inside the connector as well, my buddies 2000 cougar had the same problem and it turned out to be a loose terminal on the connector to the alternator. on the v6 version the alternator isn't all that easy to get to. i'm not sure about the 4 cyl versoin but if you look around you'll find it, usually on the passenger side

this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

There is a starter fuse in the black fuse box under the hood. It will have the label of each on it. If you replace the fuse, and it blows again, then the starter is bad.
