Basically it's remove and replace, Safety first, just remove the negative battery cable before starting the removal so you don't cause a short to ground and a big spark.

SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

My 2000 cougar 2.5L won't start. Makes a high pitched noise. Is this for sure my starter


Tap on the side of the starter with a pry bar and a hammer while making sure to stay away from the electrical connections. The high pitched noise you are hearing is the starter drive spinning but not engaging. This should help get the car started so you can get it to a repair shop or the parts store.
