Question about Mercury Sable
The reason I looked in that fuse box was because my car will not start. When I turn the key everything sounds normal, it just won't fully crank. I thought it may be the fuel pump or fuel filter so I was trying to check everything in that department. When I looked in the fuses I noticed 8,11, and 13 missing. Is this normal or could this be why I have had so many issues with my car in the last six months. I know car manuals always have some things in them that my car may not have or need. I want to know what the fuses do and why they would not be in my car.
Hello, One of the sites that has fuse and wiring info is Autozone. They ask you to register(free) and then allow you to look up a limited number of cars for info. You will need to go to the bottom of the Webpage in the Help section. You will need to Navigate your way through free and pay sections. The info you need is in the free section.
When you get the info you can see what those fuses apply to.
Yes rewiring can cause issues. Have your battery checked for performance. A starter "draw" test and the battery test is done free at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys.
When you have issues with the Anti-theft, it can reduce power to the starter. Sometimes a shorting battery can trigger the antitheft.
There are many unused fuse slots in a vehicle. Besides options, the fuse blocks are made for universal fit to save money.
Every circuit needs protection. The protection has to be the same Amp fuse or wires will burn or fuses will break.
What you may also wish to do is restate the problem and include the "missing issues" that you did not include the first time. It might provide a clue for us to solve your problem.

you can try just resetting the fuel pump switch located in the car
the switch is originally in the car for in case of an accident, however, if changed, chances are you also have to reset it
in my 98 grand marquis, the switch is on the left side of the trunk

it doesn't have a fuel pump relay it has a fuel pump control unit and it is located on the chassis back quarter drivers side near the tube cross member for chassis on top of chassis rail near bed mount. locate the rear springs front perch and it will be above that on top of rail.
hope this helps. good luck and please ask any question you have.
