Two things could be one the ground on the starter itself bad, aslo check the small wire that pushes on the starter. The most likley reason is the starter has failed if the battery tests ok.

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.


V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.

clicking usually sounds like a starter sometiimes when they start going bad it gets stuck that's why u only hear clicking, try tapping it with a steel bar or something it worked for me wen my car was doing that, and what u mentioned about the battery it might be that is not holding charge even if u try jump starting it

Replace started


It is located on the right side of the motor. You have to remove the air filter box, and battery to get to it. You have to take it out from the top side. It's a tight fit but can be done without too much problems. I replaced mine twice. You have to work pretty much blind, and by feel. This will save you at least $100.00 in labor.

Mercury Cougar 1999 V6 Starting problem.


To remove the alternator, you have to remove the serpentine belt. They have a tensioner in which you place a socket wrench and pull on it and it loosens the belt. Before removing the belt notice how it is routed. Some vehicles have a diagram on the hood or on the front near the grill.You take the belt off. Then you remove the alternator by removing the bolts attaching the alternator to the engine. There are two or three bolts you have to remove. Two of them are fairly big bolts. About a size 14 metric or so. Disconnect the negative battery cable battery so you won't hit any grounds.Then take off the plugs from the alternator and the small nuts that hold the wires. Notice how they are placed before removing so you can know where each plug goes.Then replace the new alternator. Plug it back up and install the same way you took it out.Replace the belt starting from the left to right and pull on the tensioner and reinstall.

Car won't start,hear clicking but won't st. not sure if it's starter or alternator 2.5 litre EFI engine, lights work not battery


Even if the lights work it still might be the battery. Remove the battery and have it tested. If OK, clean the posts and the the connectors before reconnecting. Make sure the connectors are on good and tight.
