Question about Mercury Mountaineer
Gauges on dash jump when i try to start it. need jump even when i have battery power
Who sed there is any kinda wire on the battery? if u can't see it , it ain't there?! try this! take all the extra stuff off the key ring, so that u r only holding the key and the keyfob.[keyfob= KLICKER] now start the car? if there is still a no-start condition, then reprogram the key/and fob.PROCEDURE: insert key with fob only. switch the key off/on 8 times. when u r on the 8th time in the ON POSITION, hold down any button the keyfob and hold down for a count of 30. then turn off; take out of key slot. then put back-in and see if this will start the car. it worked for my 2002 explorer!. lol.

SOURCE: Dead battery or starter?
Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 mercury mountaineer 4.0 liter. Had to remove the visor to replace so cut wires to visor light to remove and now the power window along with the radio and gas gauge don't work. Need adv
Check fuse 17(15amp) in the interior fuse panel.

I agree with philipk and I might consider a different shop since separating the level sender from the gauge isn't rocket science and only requires a basic meter to check the integrity of the sender. If it checks bad, it will still cost a bit of labor (the sender isn't expensive; <$50 US) but since it is located inside the gas tank and is rarely removable without dropping the whole gas tank, expect some labor costs. The cost of replacing the instrument cluster would be far greater though if the sender checks out OK.

sounds like the car is running off the battery due to a bad alternator,the battery is just for the car to start,not to keep it running,replace the alternator and charge the battery and your problem should be solved,hope this helped
