SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

SOURCE: 2001 Mercury Cougar, won't turn over

This will sound stupid but check to make sure all the bulbs, yes I said bulbs, as in brake and turn signals are the correct bulb. No kidding. I fought a problem like this in my shop for a week on a mustang. It had a wrong brake light bulb. Just a idea. See if it will start by jumping the 2 posts on the starter solenoid under the hood on the inner fender. It has two battery cables going to it. use 2 heavy screw drivers to do this. Do not tough the metal of teh screw drivers. The solenoid could also be bad.

SOURCE: 2001 mercury cougar steering wheel?

Don't listen to that guy!!!! you need to take the plastic cover behind the steering wheel. there are two bolts holding the air bag in t30 (torx) then the air bag falls right off. then the steering wheel is held in by a 15 mm head bolt.
Warning: make sure battery is disconnected for at least 30 min before you mess with the air bag connector

I have a 1990 Mercury Cougar. Several problems...Blinkers, hazards, horn, and break lights are not working. However the break light in the back window comes on when the break is pressed. Checked fused and...

I am unaware of what a "CO" display is.
Now with the blinkers, hazard, horn and brake lights not working that may be the multi funtion switch (blinker switch) that is located inside the column (where the blinker lever attaches).
Obviously the blinker, hazard and horn will all work off of something in the column. Brake lights, you may think a switch on the pedal.

the brake lights do work with that switch but when you have the kind of tail lights where a turn signal light shares the same bulb as a brake light, the brake light is cancelled for the turn signal by running through the multi function switch inside the column.
The third brake light does not blink so its not on that same circuit.

Hazard lights turn on while I am driving even when I do not press the button, and they will not shut off until I turn the car off.

Remove the switch and unplug the wires from the switch.This should disable your hazard lights.You may have a faulty switch or faulty relay.

Turn signals and hazard light stop working inside and out of car,

Try this easy check. Press the hazard switch on and off about 20-30 times and see is it all starts working again. The contacs in the switch assembly get dirty and this will help clean them up from non use. Worth a try.

first check all panel and underhood fuses and if all o.k you need a multifunction switch which operates all of mentioned componants.
