Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar
Sounds like your alarm is preventing the car from starting.
you can disconnect your negative battery cable, and wait about 10 minutes. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position, but NOT to the START position. reconnet the battery cable CAREFULLY with the key ON, and the driver's side door OPEN. your alarm should "chirp" a few times, while reconnecting the battery. afterwards, try to start the car when the battery is tightly connected.
if the car still refuses to start, use the "panic" feature on your remote, to intentionally set off your alarm, and then turn it back off, to make sure it stops properly.
if this does not work, remove the fuse for your alarm, and try to start the car again without the fuse in place.....otherwise replace the fise and remove the pwoer connector from your alarm.
your actual alarm should be behind the trim plate, on the bottom side of your dash, above your gas and brake pedals....then try to start the car AGAIN....
if none of this works, then your alarm is defective and needs to be serviced be the installer, or manufacturer. also, calling the manufacturer will help too, as they have "reset and disable" features that can literally "bypass" your alarm.
