96 Mercury cougar gas gauge won't work

Cathy, 1996 Mercury cougar gas gauge not working. Simplest thing to check first is your fuel gage fuse, make sure all fuses are good. The ground wire could be corroded/damaged, sending unit in tank faulty, fuel level gauge in cluster faulty. All things can be tested by a good Tech.,diagnosed and estimate for repair.

1990 mercury sable gas gauge won't work is there a fuse regarding the gas gauge also airbag light always flashing I want to fix it myself is it possible

Go to this link and read on it.The fuse you are looking for is probably under the hood possible relay. fuel pumps tend to get wires corroded and that will also cause the gauge not to work.The fuse you are looking for is actually mounted on the combined instrument assembly, top/back side. I personally have never looked for it before now, but the wiring diagram shows it there. The problem is that it feeds all of the gauges and lights in the cluster. If the fuel gauge is the only one affected, I would target an actual sending unit fault, rather than the instrument cluster. It's not uncommon for cars of that age to have corroded wiring going into the sending unit

1990 Ford Mercury Sable airbag light won't stop flashing and gas gauge won't work how do I fix them is there fuses to check

The airbag has a fault and the airbag system is disabled (VERY BAD) The system must be checked for fault codes, but the most likely cause is the rotating contact coil under the steering has an open circuit to the steering wheel airbag. The system can severely injure you if not disarmed before the steering wheel is removed to replace the contact drum, so best left to an expert.
The gas gauge problem is almost for sure a fault in the fuel tank fuel level sensor float arm. That means you must remove the gas tank to replace the fuel pump module.

I have a 2005 Mercury Sable that suppose to have a 18 gallon gas talk, but I can only get at most, 13 gallons of gas in it and it never will fill up. I have never been able to fill the gas tank up in full,...

With the gas gauge not working right, you have probably never let it get completely empty. And as far as the gas gauge goes, it's probably the fuel level switch. you can not purchase these separate from the sending unit. It would be a $500.00 + I would live with it untill the pump goes out, because this is part of the sending unit also.
