The radiator cooling fan(s) -- correct?

This sounds like the radiator-fan thermal switch is stuck or the wire going to it is grounded.

To stop it, find the switch (somewhere in/around the radiator) unplug the wire, tape the end of the wire, tuck it away somewhere.

To fix it will probably require a mechanic unless you have the experience.

Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car

Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

Mercury sable 1996 turns over wont start

Pull the error codes in the ECM to see what is causing the no-start. It could be a faulty fuel pump or fuse for the pump or???? Don't guess---pull the codes and don't waste time and money. Even if you have to purchase an inexpensive code reader

My 2001 Mercury sable will not start and when I tried to jump start still wont start but alarm goes off and windshield wipers go haywire could it be the starter?

It could be the starter, but i would start with having your battery load tested. Sounds like that is the problem. I hope this helps.

I just got a brand new battery for my 96 mercury sable and the battery light is on and my radio wont work

usually if a battery light is on it is a sign that the alternator has went out, start it and take the negative battery cable off while its running, if it dies the alternator is bad.. as far as the radio, that has nothing to do with it, most likely a fuse blown.

Try checking the altenator. If the starter and battery were gimpy, the altenator may have a blown regulator too!. It sounds like there is a short in the system causing this problem. Most likely the altenator or component in the charging loop. WF
