LOL!!! I had the same problem. I can't recall the exact steps, but there aren't that many options, so you'll get this. With the car running, press the Info button on the left side. It will cycle through the various statuses of the car. At one point, it will get to the Oil and will tell you something like "Press Reset if New." Press it and hold that darned button until it acknowledges that you changed the oil. It will reset that message from 0% to 100%. It took me a couple of tries to get that to reset. Just keep trying it till it resets. You'll get it.

SOURCE: Change the oil on a 2005 Mercury Montego

Go to a automotive store and tell them you have a 2005 Mercury Montego and what engine it has if there is more then one model and get an oil filter and the oil. Put the car up on ramps and secure it making sure it won't roll back or fall while you are under it. get under the engine and look for the oil pan which should have a bolt in the bottom of it where you can drain the oil. Drain the oil in a proper container and then put the drain plug back in the pan. Then find the oil filter and unscrew it and remove it.. It could be full of oil so watch out and make sure the pan is underneath the filter. Wipe the base where the oil filter screws on and make sure the gasket from the old filter is not still on the engine. Get your new filter and take your finger and put it in one of your new containers of new oil and spread that on the gasket of the new filter. Screw on the filter until the gasket touches the base and then turn only a little more then a 1/4 to 1/2 turn tops. Do not over tighten the filter. Find out what oil the vehicle needs (probably 5-30) and look for the oil cap on a valve cover under the hood. It probably takes 5 quarts but check for sure in your manual or ask when you are at the automotive store. Put the oil in and put the filler cap back on. Now go start the vehicle and make sure you have oil pressure by either the oil pressure guage showing pressure or the oil pressure idiot light goes off and while running check under the car for any signs of leaks. If no leaks then back the car off the ramps and shut the car off on a level surface. Let it sit 10 minutes and check for leaks underneath the car and check the oil dipstick to make sure the proper level of oil is in the engine. Then you are set.

Always check your air filter when changing oil to make sure it is clean as that helps your engine run better and you save gas in the process. Good luck

It is also best to change oil when your engine is warmed up as well.

SOURCE: Oil change light

Look up the light on the part of your owners manual that explains what each idiot light is for on your dash. That should give you a page where more information on it is available. Part of that section should state that if maintenance is done by someone other then your Mercury dealer, then do the following to reset the light. That should take care of ya.

Good Luck

2005 STS LED TAILLIGHT, HAS TWO ROWS OF LEDS, ONLY ONE ROW OF LEDS ARE LIGHTING UP?


Hello John Bland,

Light Emitting DIODES. DIODES... all semiconductors
are highly susceptible to FAILURE if improperly handled.

In a protected (anti-static) environment they do have an EXPECTED LIFE CYCLE.

In an UNPROTECTED... POORLY handled environ... you
can expect the slightest SPARK... (you might not even feel)
to render any/all semiconductors into USELESS trash.

STUDY UP: ESD = ELECTRO-Static Discharge.
Modern electronics should only be handled by qualified
technicians...

REAL "qualified" technicians (at least while the BOSS
is watching) wear anti-static wrist-bands.

$300 Compared to $10K, $20K and $60K (etc. etc.)
circuit boards YOUR STS tail lights are pretty cheap...

I'd still recommend borrowing, begging or buying
a WRIST STRAP ... I am just saying.
(see below (50 years industrial experience)).

My passenger tail light went out on my 2005 mercury Montego, instead of replacing the expensive led assembly, is there any other cars with "same" assembly without the expensive led's? Marquis/crwnvic?


Hello P Schaub,

Looking at the options available to you for parts...
Published by ROCKAUTO...
- it does indeed seem to be YOUR CHOICE...

Either TYPE of BULB seems to fit your vehicle .

Still LOOKING but I see no RESTRICTIONS.

P Schaub Apr 02, 2016

But will the whole tail light assembly from mercury grand marquis fit directly in my 2005 mercury Montego? Would much rather order 2 new marquis tail lights then the 1 Montego tail light since price difference is better.

Sorry.. I miss-understood.

I thought you were trying to save (avoid)the $20 of the LED over The old style... .You are seriously wanting to use Crown Victoria "housings"...?

If I am understanding ... you want to reconfigure your back-up lights & everything?

Sorry I got in the way of this question. I would NOT recommend downgrading to incandescent...
but your are talking custom wiring as well.

I would not recommend either. The dealer cost for each Crown Victoria is over $100 each... and you HAVE NOT EVEN started with the CUSTOM WORK NEEDED for our reverse (back-up) lights.

I absolutely believe the trunk lid is different as well...

If you want a sheet metal guy to tell you the
fenders are the same... The best recommendation would be to RE-POST your question. I'll steer clear. Sorry I miss-understood your objective.

My apologies!

I would suggest your repost.

2011 Mercury Milan LED tail light out


Yes, I have a 2011 Milan as well and both sides of mine went out. One last year (2013) and the other side recently. My car is no longer under warranty and the dealer said they it would be $417 to repair. Ford needs to fix this issue because from what I have been reading it is a common problem and it is a safety issue!

My 2005 Audi A6's right brake light and blinker intermittently stop working. I've taken the tail light assembly off, the bulb looks good, and cleaned all of the contacts and it still does it. Could it be...


It is the LED componet in the taillight, not the bulbs that are replaceable. I had the same problem and only solution is to replace the entire assembly.

Tail light removal 2006 Montego


The liner is much more durable that it appears. You should be able to fold the liner back enough to unscrew the three bolts holding the tail light unit.
