The sensor is inside the fuel tank. It's a 2.1 hour job for a trained mechanic.

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.

Comeing from a cougar expert seeing how I own three mercury dealerships called Holcomb, Holcomb, and Holcomb's if anyone should know the answer to this one it is certainly me. I do all the buying, selling, mechanics myself. Last time I had to fix this for someone I took a mental note. First you are going to have to look on the outside of the vehicle behind the drivers door. This is called a quarter panel but for you lamens it is the fender. You need to look for a round cutout in the rear quarter panel aka Fender. If you will take notice it has a small petrustion that looks like you could stick your finger in it. You will need to pull this hatch open once inside the hatch you will notice another security devise for keeping the full locked in safe. This is a gas cap which leads to a filler neck. You will need to insert gas through this feature and that should take cared of that problem. I am glad I could be of some service if you have any other questions please contact me at one of my many dealerships my number is 501-760-2300 and ask for the main man. David You have been a great pupil and I would love to teach you some more. Thanks

SOURCE: 2000 Mercury cougar fuel pump not turning on?

Check the fuel pump fuse first, if its good then check the fuel pump relay. Try swapping it with another like it in the area, If its also good, check for power at the fuel pump harness with the switch on. If power is present, the pump is most likely bad.

96 Mercury cougar gas gauge won't work


Cathy, 1996 Mercury cougar gas gauge not working. Simplest thing to check first is your fuel gage fuse, make sure all fuses are good. The ground wire could be corroded/damaged, sending unit in tank faulty, fuel level gauge in cluster faulty. All things can be tested by a good Tech.,diagnosed and estimate for repair.

You would check the white red wire going into the tank for reference voltage from the gauge, then see if the sending unit in the tank is grounding the circuit. You should be able to ground the wire going to the gauge and make it move.
