Sounds like the brake fluid level may be low or possible a bad level sensor in the master cylinder.

2002 mercury cougar starts once then stalls. Wont start just cranks. I have spark and can hear fuel pump come on.


Probably something with the PATS system , Passive anti theft system. Is there a red light in the middle of you dash that flashes fast when you try to start the car. Or is there a security light lit on you instrument cluster ? If you have a problem with PATS the engine computer will turn off fuel injectors in some cases !

What would make the break lights on the outside stay on the whole time you are driving? Emergency break isnt on. 99 mercury cougar


Your brake switch is probably stuck. It is located under the dash in the cab, above the pedals. It is a chrome looking cylinder. It has a button on the end of it, when you push the break in, it releases the button. It is probably stuck.

Break lights are stuck on, why?


look under the dash and find the break pedal. follow the break pedal arm up under the dash. there should be a small switch that the break pedal arm presses in when you push the pedal. this switch can either be bad or it could be out of adjustment and something near by has moved and it is in a bind to where the switch is pressed in all the time.... has it been running your battery down...?

Brake lights wont turn off


dont worry all you need to do is just change the 2 sensors found onlong top side of the break peddle. it be cheaper if you could get it from the junkyard from even a mecury contour or mystic, both cars have all the same parts as the cougar , try it i did.

2000 mercury cougar wont start


what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.
