Dash lights flicker engine light on and cooling light on and off


Take your car to local parts store & have them test your charging system. Most do it free. Sounds like possible alternator or loose drive belt.

If you are referring to the Check Engine light then this indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. The fault code that has been set by the ECU will tell you where to look for the problem. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry, but do have this looked into. If you are referring to the oil pressure light stop driving the car until you get this repaired as it may be serious.

I have a 2001 mercury cougar with the 2.5L v6 engine and the number 2 cylinder is misfiring. ive replace the spark plugs and wires but it still misfires


Its time to do a injector balance and cylinder leakage test, to determine whether the injector or its circuitry is bad . The leakage test will tell you if the cylinder has a compression leak.

My cars engine, battery, and oil lights are on. HELP!


well when the car shuts off or stalls your check engine , oil . battery lights are all going to come on the oil light is telling you there is no oil pressure due to the car not running the battery light is going to come on due to the alternator not pushing any juice because the car is not running and the check engine light also now. check under the car and make sure that your moter did not cut,rip or fray any wires comming from the starter area. this could be a big problem and make lights flicker and the car to run funny.

I had the same kind of problem and I ended up solving it by actually checking for recalls for the 2000 Cougar and when you do, you'll see that there is a fuel pump recall. I dont' know if you've already done this but I figured i'd post this and try and help out!

Much luck

Flickering lights


In some 1999/2000 Cougars the wire between the battery and the voltage regulator(altenator) had a resistance reading that is too high. Ford has issued an TSB 00-25-6 that has instructions on how to replace this wire. The part # for the replacement wire is
1S8Z-14A411-AA. I'm in Michigan and a local dealer found one for me in South Bend,IN
