If the alternater output drops when the rpm's increase
you may have a slipping belt. Stop at a parts store
autozone/napa/ or advance. They will put meter on it
for free. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 mercury cougar that won't shift out of park. the brake lights do work. please help


This is wiring for shift interlock. Some makes and models have a bypass button close to shifter in order to bypass shift interlock. I don't know if your vehicle has that button or not? I looked at info for 6 cylinder.

I have a 99 merc cougar with new alternator and battery in car can not get the car to charge check the fuse inside the car and the ones under the hood is there a inline fuse on the motor your some were...


When you turn the key on, does your charge light come on? When working right, the charge light comes on with key on, then when started and alternator is working, the charge light (or battery icon, whatever) will go out. If that light doesn't come on, it may have a burnt bulb or wiring problem, and that will keep car from charging.
If that's alright, you must have a loose connection or wire not connected between your battery and alternator. Also, check your grounds: battery, engine to frame, ECM (likely on top of engine).

I HAVE A 99 6 CYLENDER COUGER AND IT HAS NO RESPONSE FROM THE KEY NO LIGHTS COME ON NO POWER TO ANYTHING CHECKED THE BATTERY AND ITS GOOD IS THIS PROBLEM COMMON AND HOW DO I FIX IT???


Sounds like the battery cables are loose or corroded.
Usually its the battery. But your saying battery is ok.
Is battery new?If no was battery load tested?
Battery cables can be for resistance with a voltmeter.
If you need help with that let me know.

most likely you need to replace the speedometer sensor..it control the transmission shifter by sending the signal to the pcm and the pcm to transmission shift solenoid..that why it don't shift right

Hi:
I would definitely have your alternator checked out. The battery light means that the car is running off the battery, and not the alternator,. If you can or know someone who can remove it, most auto parts stores will check it out for free, and tell you if it is bad or good.
