Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. The anti theft light is not responding with the ignition in the off position or when the switch is cut on. However it will respond if you lock the doors. Also the transmission will not take drive. What could be causing this problem?

That is the way mine works. It is either an "active" or "passive" system (don't know which term goes with which system) meaning that you have to lock the vehicle manually in order for the anti-theft system to work.

I don't know what you mean by "transmission will not take drive"..

How do you reset the anti-theft 1999 mountaineer


I dont think it's your anti theft. If you're having issues with it I would bypass it completely to eliminate that possibility allowing you to troubleshoot easier

Sounds like your anti theft engaged with the wrong key or the chip did not activate properly in you key. You can probably reset this by disconnecting the negative side of the battery for thirty seconds and trying again.

How do I reset the anit-theft system on the vehicle?


your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

Why is my Theft light is blinking?


this sounds like the theft system is activated and needs to be reset, the key not going into the switch could be a worn key or tumblers in the key switch.

I have a 1997 Ford Mercury Mountaineer I go to start it and it wont turn over but it has fire


I suggest check battery charge, starter and ignition system condition; fuel pressure and fuel injection delivery system.

If you have some anti-theft system, check if this inst activated or some aftermark alarm.

Hope helps.
