You need to have it put on a scanner to read the codes. Code readers won't get codes from security problems. Next time you have a mobile mechanic come out, ask them if they have a scanner, that does your year ... Not a code reader. A scanner reads all the computers on the car (can be up to ten or twelve on new cars) A code reader only does the engine.

Car wont start when hot, starter wont kick in

Not sure how you could check the starter hot, but the main components are the battery, key switch, neutral safety switch, and starter. A mechanic would check for voltage at each connection.

2004 mountaineer. battery dies if not run for two or three days. battery and alternator checked and found ok. something is draining it, any ideas?

You basically said it. Something is probably draining the system. Disconnect the positive lead off the battery and then connect a amp meter in between that lead and the positive post and check the reading. If your over 100 milliamps you have something drawing power somewhere.

2004 Mercury Mountaineer Problem

ok try to turn the engine from the cranshaft pulley with a tool like a socket and ratchet if you are not hable to turn engine by hand then you have an engine problem, and also check if the batterie cables get hot when trying to start if they do the only thing wrong will be a defective starter or an engine problem
