How do I remove the lock lug on a 2001 mercury sable

You need the key.
If you have lost the lug key, most tire service centers have methods to remove them, but they usually destroy them in the process.
On the Mercury Sable, the key was originally clipped to the lug wrench but was also sometimes stored in the glove compartment.

My 2004 Mercury Sable blows the run/acc fuse every time you cycle the key The car runs fine but does not have wipers radio heater controls or gas gauge This vehicle has a remote start that has not fu

If the remote start was not working and you were not blowing the fuse, and is doing so now. that would suggest that could be the problem. But something is definitely giving you a direct ground on your key cycle. I would go through and disconnect the remote start first, then if that does not fix the problem, then its time to disconnect all the accessory on that fuse and one by one check them for a ground or short. I also would like to know how are you starting the car once the fuse blows ?

Mercury remote keys

Have all of the available remotes in hand, put key into ignition and cycle key 8 times rapidly, ending in the on position (on & off = 1 cycle, do not engage starter), door locks will cycle, letting you know that the vehicle is in program mode. To program remote, push the unlock button on each clicker, to close programming, turn car off.

Sounds like it it should at the minimum run for a second or two when you cycle the switch. You could also have someone check the pressure at the access port on the rail it needs to be about 39lbs to open the injectors. Sorry wish I had better news. Good luck

if here is no airbag light on when you first turn on the key. then the beeping is coming from the airbag module. you will have to take cluster apart and replace airbag light bulb, that should stop the beeping.
