Why won't my trunk or fuel door open on my 95 mercury cougar


Open the glove box; you'll see two buttons to the left, the lower one is for the gas tank. Get an owner's manual asap as it helps to have this. Best of luck. (here's my ride)

How to change tail and head lights on a 2000 Mercury Cougar


I do not know exactly how your car is setup, but usually there are only two ways to access the rear bulbs. One is inside from the trunk, there may be a small access port in the trunk liner behind the bulbs, you remove this access port and reach in to get at the bulb. The other, more difficult, open the trunk, look for a couple of screws near the tailights that look like they hold in the edge of the light housing and are hidden when you close the trunk. Remove those screws (maybe Torx style), and the you can pull out the tail light assembly from the body and change the bulbs from there.
This is just a very brief description.

Battery needs to be recharged after 3 days of sitting.


There is a slow drian being placed on the battery from one of the VW accessories installed on your bug. I had a very similar problem with my daughter's 1998 Beetle, and the cause was traced back to the hood latch. There's an electrical connection to the hood latch, and when the connection fails it places a slow drain on the battery. Although I'm not fully certain, I beleive the connection is part of the circuit that allows the security system to sense that the doors, hood and trunk are all closed.

I also had a problem with the electrical trunk release actuator, and had to have it replaced once. The remote key fob signals a the electrical actuator to open the trunk lid when the trunk release button on the key fob is pushed. If your trunk release operated normally, you probably do not have an electrical problem by your trunk.

About 60 percent certain you problem is located in your hood release circuit. An experience car nechanic should be able to test this circuit using a hand held electrical meter before it is removed and replaced.

Good luck. My daughter's bug has been acting normally ever since the latch was replaced about 2-3 years ago.

Rear trunk wont close, power trunk wont close mechanisms seem to be fine just wont latch


You can adjust the trunk lid by loosening the bolts at the hinges. If that wont work then there is a micro switch incorporated within the trunk latch. You will need to replace the entire latch unit unfortunatly.

Good news and bad news.....

Inside the trunk is an emergency pull cord. When you turn the key there is a little piece on that cord that the key pulls on... you can only fix it with the trunk open though. So, to open it, get the remote or have a second person to open the trunk right after you press the button. Open it while the latch is rewinding.
