SOURCE: Mercury Villager headlight assembly diagaram for removal

This is easy. Lift the lid open. Look at the back of the sealed beam and you will see a clip and an o ring. Pull the clip up and pull wires back toward the driver's seat. Unscrew the o ring and firmly pull the bulb out toward the driver again. Note the 3 tabs on the bulb seat and realign the new bulb with those tab ( 2 bottom, 1 top). Replace with #9007 them both.

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.

SOURCE: 2000 Mercury cougar V6 Headlights and instrument light don't work


balkjr Check the 7.5 amp fuse thats under the dash labeled high beams and low beams. I like a idiot checked all the other fuses under the hood but neglected to check that one and it was blown. Once i replaced the fuse my headlights work fine but still no instrument lights. For whatever reason i was able to blow the fuse again by shorting out the dimmer switch so i checked it with a multimeter and it had voltage going in but none out. I unplugged the dimmer switch and looked into it and alias noticed a solder in the middle pin that had snapped off. Its proved trickier than i had expected to solder it back but i know for sure that it is the culprit because i was able to use a pin to reach in it and hold the solder point down to get connection and my instrument lights worked fine. You can look right into the switch and see the solder point thats broke if that seems to be the problem for you also it comes from the middle pin on the switch and solders straight to the board. Just look inside the switch is made fairly open.

Open the hood and make sure the car and the lights are off.
Remove the plastic protective cover.There are 3 knobs,turn halfway and pull.Put aside and out of the way.
Remove the three pins that are holding the light assembly in place.These are flat rods with a little bend at the end.
Twist and un-plug the lights,now you can remove the whole lens.
The light bulbs can also be removed and replaced from this point.
Make sure all the bulbs are working before you put it back together.

SOURCE: 2000 Mercury Cougar Power door locks do not work on either door

Power door locks are on the same fuse as the alarm system. The fuse is located in the passenger compartment fuse panel under the steering wheel. There is a pull down lever that will release the fuse box. The fuse for the alarm system/locking system is #25. Yellow color and a 20 ampere rating.

Install replacement headlights ?

You need to get a pair of pliers (called "snapring pliers")to remove the retainers (the little silver "do-dads" holding the headlight assembly in place... on the back of the grille opening panel). There's 2 of them on each assembly. You get those off and the headlight assembly practically FALLS out

I need to install the Headlights on a '90 cougar. What tools will i need and what proceedures to take?

Do you just need to replace burned out bulbs or the entire headlight assembly? I replaced the assembly on my '90 Mercury Cougar when the lens cover came off (evidently while was just gone one day). Turns out you couldn't replace just the lens, had to replace entire assembly. I found one in a pick and pull junkyard and it was quite inexpensive. The assembly was held in place with three or four spring clips which can be removed with a pair of fine-nose pliers, but be careful, due to the age of the car, the spring metal in the clips is somewhat brittle, I had one of them break.
