Question about 1995 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

My Mercury Cougar won't stay running,even when I give the Batt. a boost. I have changed the mount that was corroded and unserviceable. What else can I try?

    It was the connector that goes around the post of the battery. I figured once i changed it the car would start on its own,but it didn't. T he vehicle would start with a boost from another car but won't stay started. It doesn't stall when I let off the gas it's as if the battery just doesn't have the "juice" to keep the car running. I probably need to get the battery tested and then go from there what do u suggest? I hope this gives u more info and I appreciate ur response!! THANKS!

I have a 2000 cougar, batt light wont go off, stalls out like alternator isnt working. Wont charge batt at all! Could using a dide mounted batt instead of top mounted batt be a priblem?


your charging system should show 14+v at the battery when running-it doesn't matter what the battery is if alternator is not putting out -cheers Denny

Emergency brake for 1999 cougar


Not likely! cause the length wouldn't be right or the way it mounts. You could use one off of another cougar within a couple years make of yours.

Car battery wont stay charged 2000 cougar


Hi

Your battery is shot, the plates inside are possibly shorting out.

New battery I am afraid.

Good Luck !
