Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Why did my digital instrument panel go out on my 1999 Mercury Cougar? This digital part shows, time, miles on the car, trip length, how many miles I can drive before running out of fuel and a few other things... The speedometer and the RPM gague is not digital so that works, but nothing in the digital area, and I have no way of telling mileage on the car now.We just got the car and it was fine, we had a chilly night and the next day it wasn't working. We checked the fuses, and those were fine. Could it be a module?

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles


Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.

Usually around 90,000 miles is a good time to change this component. I see you are approaching this mark with 88,000 and counting so, i would prepare for this replacement soon.
