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 !

99 mercury cougar anti theft light flashing no spark


if the security system is malfunctioning, it wont let the engine start as to avoid someone stealing it. have someone check the system or just deactivate the security cuz your car is useless unless it runs! security can take a back seat to the ability for it to move

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.


V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.

99 chevy cavalier theft system light on steady, car wont crank.


My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!

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.
