you may need to use a high octane gas to clean your injectors and replace the inline gas filter as this should cure the problem. On the wiper blades that is more than likeley the relay switch that is connected to them it should be located near the firewall on the driverside.

SOURCE: Hi i have changed 2
Have the Battery checked and you may want to replace the Ignition key. If you have Anti-theft or a Remote car starter the problem may be there.
The Alternator needs power to the brushes in order to generate the Big Amps that go to the Battery and run your car. The Keyswitch provides that current to the Alternator. Without the power going TO the Alternator nothing will come out.
However the Ignition can be controlled by the Antitheft system and Remote start. Both can interrupt the power going to the Alternator as well as the Ignition. Check the plug connector going to the Alternator brushes and see if they are getting power or not when the car is running.
Both Autozone and Oreillys will scan your car for free. They may need to do a Diode test to catch the Brushes messing up.
In either case, have the Alternator bench tested before tossing it.

Front plugs V-6 remove engine logo cover and air boost box, use looped end longe needle nose pliers to grip boots at base and pull up, easy to do when engine is still a little warm, I use a Thorsen brand spank plug socket and 12" extension, the Thorsen does not have rubber boot which may stick to plug when installing.Rear plugs, remove the 3 bolts on coil pack, slide back an inch, use same tool to loosen boots from plugs, use same 12" extension and socket that you used on front, there is just enough room for that extension to slightly rub rubber hood seal on firewall. remember to properly gap plugs .052-.056" and to hand tighten them first before placing ratchet onto extension so you know plugs are grabbing threads properly. I just performed this job on my 2001 V-6 Cougar and took just around 30 minutes, no need to spend many hundreds in a shop to change your plugs... another tip, if you have air, blow the spark plug pockets out after you remove the plug wires in case any were loose and debris had fallen inside, mine were pristine...
