Question about Cars & Trucks

My 1996 mercury cougar xr7 V8. Check engine light come on and I took it 2 autozone so they could scan it to see why the problem was. When they hook the scanner up to the computer. The scanner said I had no power to the computer. Then they asked if my lighter outlet worked and it does. Why would it say no power to the computer if the car is running good

The lighter is the fuse the OBD uses to read the PCM, but Ford and Mercury added a relay to. Depending on the vehicle , they used two different ones. If vehicle has the CCRM is located on the diver side by the radiator and the other is called GEM relay, usually located behind the fuse block under the dash driver side.
