Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
It sounds like the ignition may be shot.If you have an immobilizer system,that could be the problem,but they rarely go bad.Please read my tips about keys for cars.It should be free but i do see alot of 1-cent credits and I believe it is from my tips about cars.If it does turn out to be a bad ignition,you may want to compare the cost of a new ignition versus a used steering column which is what I did when I had the same problem.It didn't cost much more,butdid save many hours of labor and headaches.The steering column is a few bolts and disconnecting the wire harness and is easily self-repairable,but the ignition is many hours,tedious and have to almost rip the steering column half apart anyway.For accurate estimates and opinions further,call an AAA approved shop.Good luck! greg
