On fuel injected vehicles, as opposed to those with carburetors, there is no idle-speed adjustment that holds the throttle blade open a little more or a little less. There is no "fast idle" cam operated by a choke — indeed, there is no choke.

Instead, there is a passage that allows air to go around the throttle blade. That passage has an electrically controlled valve that allows more or less air to go through the passage. In conjunction with a tachometer circuit in the Electronic Control Module, the ECM can completely control the idle speed of the engine, speeding it up as necessary when the air conditioner is turned on, if some electrical device is turned on increasing the load of the alternator, or a higher idle speed is needed due to putting the transmission into gear.

It sounds like that feature is the point of trouble. The air passage that is involved can become blocked, the electrical device can cease operating smoothly, etc.

The first thing to do is disassemble and clean that process. Make sure the air passage is clear, the valve is clean and operates, and so on.

1998 Mercury Mystique heater blower motor doesn't work. Have replaced everything and checked both fuses (both good). What next?


Don't know how the ABS light would be related to the blower motor, you said you checked everything - did you check the blower motor circuit for power and ground with a meter or a test light ?
Is the resistor getting power from the relay ?

1998 mercury mystique LS battery light on , battery only 1 yr. old. ? Is it my alternator ?


If all the connections are clean and tight at the battery it is likely. The alternator should put out about 14.2 volts when the engine is at a fast idle (about 1500 RPMs). Auto parts stores will test your alternator for free.

I have shorted out the electrical system in a 1998 mercury mystique. I still have somethings like the horn, headlights and dashlights but not the power locks, windows, brake lights, signal lights etc. \it...


Check all of the fuses located in the black box under the hood close to the battery on top of the inner fender. All power to the car begins there. Check for large fuses 30 amp to 60 amp. Make sure the heater fan is left unplugged. When working on components under the dash always disconnect the ground cable from the battery
