Question about 2008 Mercury Mariner
Radio quit working a couple months ago and on the display screen it reads 'mercury mariner'... now just a few weeks ago i started having trouble with starting it due to the battery being dead so i replaced the battery. for the first 2 days it would start right up. now the battery is completely dead again in the morning when i try to start the vehicle.

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: Car running rough when raining
check the spark plug wires, put water in a spray bottle and spray along the wires,especially by the coil,if the car starts to run bad or you see sparks, the wires are no good, hope this helps, Ray

A blower control switch for the digital A/C. Mine went out almost the same way, driving along, checked outside temp. and then it started getting warm. No blower, no defroster, not even a trickle of air from the vents.
This part is behind the motor on the ductwork. It is inconveniently behind the heater hose on the engine. It takes 2 screws, about 9mm, and has 1 electric plug.
It is about the size of a pack of cigarettes with 90% in the vent. If you can plug in the new part to the harness you can instantly tell if it is the problem, because the A/C will work. Then remove heater hose and lose some coolant, switch part.
Oddly enough there is a diagnostic in the dash display, but it did not idenify this part.
