You need to check your charging system. Some auto parts stores will do it for free (Autozone, etc.) Also, try unhooking your battery and scraping the terminals (even if they look ok, I've seen a lot of oxidized ones that are the color of pencil lead and won't work. Most likely, you have an alternator that is starting to go bad though. Good luck

The other four items that can cause a battery light to lite are

1) defective or failing alternator

2) aged belt tension

3) aged belt

4) poor cable contacts on battery and alternator.

It can be combination of any 4 items.

Do a quick inspection on the voltage output of the alternator and clean all cable connections ASAP.

My 2007 mercury mariner premier gas gauge is not reading, just 2 month s ago I replaced the fuel pump as well. What could it be??


Check the electrical connector at the tank first, it may be loose. While you have the tank down, you can pull the sender, check for any obstructions, plug it in, and manually move the float with the key on to check the gauge circuit.

How often do you need to change the oil? When we purchased it, the sticker said 5,000 miles. We got an oil change a couple months ago and the new sticker put on says 3,000 miles, the change oil soon...


the standard has always been 3000 miles,,,dont mess with these that claim more,,,carbon build up is the leading cause of faliure,,and the oil is the blood of your engine,,keep it changed,,put some injector cleaner in couple times a yr.,,water remover couple times in winter and you will get long service from your vehicle.

I HAVE A 2005 MERCURY MARINER. THE GAS PEDAL


Ask the service manager at the nearest Ford dealership by phone if they will take a look and not charge you since it's a critical safety item and could be a manufacturer's defect. A sticking gas pedal is something they should take pretty serious since that part certainly should not fail on a five or six year old car and recent publicity surrounding the Toyota problems has made all dealerships more responsive to that type of consumer complaint or problem.

The radio and the cd turns on but no sound comes out after having the battery replaced. The vehicle is a 05 Mercury Mariner


radio runs off two power wires, one full time power and one switched power check to see which is working. turn the key to acc. and see if power stays on with car off, check all fuses. open the hood and look at battery cables, look to see if everything was hooked up right and if there is a amplifer in your car could be a fuse on the line to the amp either next to the battery or next to the amplifer.

Motor is locked up. mercury mariner 125.


I take it you didn't winterize the engine? If that's the case what usually happens is a light film of rust has bloomed in your cylinders over the winter due to condensation and the starter can't overcome the friction. I had this problem a couple of years ago. The guys in the shop had me buy a can of fogging oil, remove the sparkplugs and squirt it into the holes until it backed up twice a day for 2 days. Then leave it alone for 72 hours with the plugs in. That was it! it actually worked for me! Hope it helps you to....
