Question about 1998 Mercury Mystique
What is this? Can it affect starting engine? Problem is that car is hard to start - takes up to three tries. Seems better if car is used frequently - I often don';t use it for a week or tow at a time. I try to run it up the highway to recharge the battery if this is the problem.
Shouldny affect it - just might need a tune up!!! Check all the wires r plugged in2 the sensors behind the brake caliper 2!!!! Good luck!!!

ive reaently had a simular problem with the key being turned over and nothing happened, i had the starter replaced, seems like it was the cylinoid going bad.

My first suspicion is the battery connections may be lose and also the battery may now be run down. If you take the terminal connections off and clean them and the terminal posts so that they are shiny clean and charge the battery you can try again. If the car starts, that was the problem. If it doesn't, then look for the starter solenoid and lose connections there and also look toward the starter next. A tech with a volt meter can run independent checks and narrow it down further but having good connections and a charged battery are necessary to get started with the other tests.

On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.
What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.
