SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2001 Mercury Cougar, won't turn over

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.

SOURCE: Turn signal stopped working 1990 Mercury Cougar

I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40

I tried to help a while ago,but it said something I typed wasn't English or some other such nonsense.The port is near the injectors on the fuel rail.
But check the fuel pump inertia switch if it might need reset.It is in the trunk or in the front passenger kick board. don-ohio

So what do you have for voltage at the battery? Sounds like the alternator went bad. There should be around 14 volts at the battery with the engine running. Anything less and the alternator would be the first thing I suspected.

I have a 1999 cougar and the charging systems power fluxuates causing the lights and motar to pulse


Same thing with my sister's 99 cougar. Her alternator is brand new and when it was replaced he had a hard time with the alternator cable so I'm thinking it is a loose wire to the alternator causing this to happen. It's either that or the brand new re-furb AutoZone junk alternator which I have had issues with in the past on another car. Check your main alternator wire and also check your battery posts for corrosion.

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.

Emergency brake for 1999 cougar


Not likely! cause the length wouldn't be right or the way it mounts. You could use one off of another cougar within a couple years make of yours.

1999 Mercury Cougar wont turn over.


I've had similar problems with mine. Try checking the cables that run between your battery and your alternator to make sure you're getting enough feed between the two. If those are ok, have your alternator checked. I've had mine replaced 5 times since I bought the car new in 1999 and the car apparently doesn't act like most other vehicles when it's going out. If the test comes back ok, test it again. I recommend having the alternator tested at least 3 times before deciding that's not the issue. Also, I know it's a simple thing but clean your connector posts on the top of your battery to make sure you're getting a good connection. Figuring out that was the problem sometimes has saved alot of hours under the hood. Good luck!!
