Question about Mercury Sable

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Mercury Sable and the fuse box under the hood shows some fuses that should be there but they are not. Should they be there or not? It is the Transmit Relay (export only),Thermacto Rela

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.

Which fuse control the engine fan on a 2001 mercury sable?

I believe these are found in the Power Distribution Box located under the hood towards the front of the engine compartment.
There's a Low Speed Fan Relay (24) and
A High Speed Fan Relay (32) with
A 40A Fuse (9) that controls both Relays.
I hope this helps.

I need to know where the fuses are located on a 2002 Mercury Sable.

Hello Amanda.

There are two separate fuse panels.

One is under the hood under a flip up black cover near the battery. This one is called the battery junction box.

The fuse panel inside the car is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by the brake pedal. You will need to remove the panel cover below the steering column to access the fuses. This one is called the central junction box.

If you need further help in locating the panels, ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Where is the fuse for the power windows located in

The fuse box, otherwise known as the central junction box is underneath the dash on the drivers side just to the left of the brake pedal. It has 3 big connectors on the left part of it and a black plastic cover on the right side of it. You can pop open the cover to expose the fuses and relays. It is not that easy to get to it but it is doable.
