It could be a loose connection somewhere in there...that would explain why when they get hot and expand a circuit is opened and once they cool back down they conract and close the circuit again...check the wiring starting at the bulb and work your way back.

2002 mercury cougar- electrical problem when i hit the breaks


Sounds like a wiring short somewhere. With the car not running, how do the brake lights look when you press the pedal? Check if things are different with headlights on or off... don't guess. Could be a bad ground connection also. Also, make sure your battery is charged and the alternator is working.

Headlights


they are not on any fuse, headlights are never fused, they have what is called an intermittent circuit breaker built into the main light switch.

Headlight switch replacement


Here is the recall info.

The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.

1993 mercury tracer


To replace the headlight on a 1993 Tracer you must turn the black plastic retainer ring counter clockwise and then pull back gently. The ring and bulb should then slide out toward the engine.
Carefully grab the sides of the plug and pull the bulb out.
When replacing the bulb make sure not to touch the glass part or it will cause the bulb to burn out sooner. Place the black ring back over the bulb with the open end towards the glass part of the bulb. Fit the wiring onto the back of the bulb and insert the bulb back into the reflector. The black plastic ring has notches that fit over protrusions. Turn the black ring clockwise and your done. Test the headlight. Happy Driving
