Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique

Ground wire for 1996 Mercury Mystique is unplugged

Hi, my sunroof stopped working on my 1996 Mercury Mystique. I checked the fuses but there are no fuses for the sunroof. I did find a green wire hanging unplugged. The end looks like it plugs in somewhere but I don't know where. I traced the green wire up the side of the car to the roof over to the sunroof. So I assume the sunroof is not working because it is not grounded. I dont know where it plugs into any ideas?

In all sun roofs on most vehicles there is a motor that operates the unit. now green wire can indicate a ground, however they can also indicate a power source like for a tail light green is used for the right turn signal circuit. to be sure use a test probe to check for voltage to that wire if it lights up it's a constant current circuit. if the light doesn't come on turn the ignition and check once more. if the light comes on than it's an auxillary circuit. if there is no fuse then there might be a relay for your sun roof circuit. check the power distribution box. your owners manual will show you exactly where that relay is located in the box under the hood. in most newer vehicles they do not use fuses for electric motors for functions in the car but a relay to protect the circuit. check all this first before connecting that green wire. if ther problem still persists then contact me again and i will help with other possiblities

1996 mercury mystique a green light comes on and it say o/d off what does this mean


It's a transmission problem. Probably a bad TCC solenoid. Worst case is the valve body.

I have 1996 mercury mystique and both break lights are not working?


Power for the combination turn/stop lamps is routed through the combination switch. If the rear turn signals work but the stop lamps do not, I suspect a combination switch failure

What is the Procedure for removal of the radiator fan from the Mercury Mystique(1996 model)


I had the same problem with my Mystique. It ended up being a plug on the top side of the fuse box. The plug had overheated and melted, causing a bad contact to the circuit. Start by pulling the fuse box out from under the dash. It is modular and will just unplug from the circuits. Look for a burnt spot or overheated wires. We found a new plug at a junk yard.

Tail lights and dash lights don't work


You should check all the bulbs and your wiring circuit for fuses outside the fuse box, such as in line fuses.

Hi, my1999 mercury mystique sunroof will tilt but won't open. It makes a buzzing noise when I try. Is it a fuse or what?


If the fuse is bad you won't hear the actuator buzzing. Sounds like something has stripped or broke.

Brake lights for a 1996 Mercury Mystique


The "multifunction switch" is bad. In the old days, this was called the turn signal switch. The brake light wiring for the two non functioning lights goes through this switch. Have your mechanic check the wiring into and out of this switch. It's in the steering column.
