Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Electric problem in my Mercury cougar 1999

My car is having a short circuit. Every time I turn on the lights, one of the 7.5 fuses explode (the one under the steering wheel. I think is the 26 one). Now to solve the problem I just turn down the lights from the dash completely and is working but I cant see the milleage oviously. What can I do to fix that?

    Even if the right fuse is 7.5? Can I try a fuse with more amp without affecting the wiring more?

(#23fuse)No turn signals/backup lights - keep blowing fuse. hard to get out of park.


You have a short to ground on that circuit , you need to look at a wiring diagram an see what all is on that circuit . It's hard to get out of park because this circuit supply's power to the shift interlock actuator . You don't need to step on the brake pedal for this fuse to blow ? just stick in a new one an it blows ? This fuse also powers the brake switch , which powers your brake lights .

My # 30 fuse keeps blowing... 99 Mercury Cougar


If it is a 7.5 amp fuse, it powers the charge warning light in the cluster and applies voltage to the alternator to make it charge.
You will need someone to trace that circuit and look for a short to ground. It may be in the cluster or in the harness.
Something else besides the fuse is making the car not start.

First look for a short or where a wire is exposed and fix that with electrical tape.

If you can not find it, then often I will put a Re-set fuse that does not blow but resets and costs about $5 at Autozone.

Good luck, J
