How do I fix my horn on a 1988 cougar ls


Check your fuse. Then test for power at the horn with a voltage meter. If no power there, then check the horn relay. If there is power at the horn but it doesn't blow, then replace the horn itself.

2001 lincoln ls cranks but wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My belt broke and now my car wont start why not?


Ok. If your car was running and then the belt broke and you continued to drive it. The case may be that you drained the battery because the alternator runs on the belt and the alternator keeps battery charged and if belt broke and you continued to drive then you may need to jump start vehicle. I guess I shouldve asked earlier but have you replaced belt yet?

Hello, I have a 96 mitsubishi galant es that wont start


could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.

My 99 cougar stick shift V-6 2.5 is acting up the Battery light keeps coming on if i dont shift Before 3 Rpm the light goes off or if i do 60 the light then goes off i think i need a new alternator does...


Hi:
I would definitely have your alternator checked out. The battery light means that the car is running off the battery, and not the alternator,. If you can or know someone who can remove it, most auto parts stores will check it out for free, and tell you if it is bad or good.

1997 mecury cougar v8 engine. Wont start. It is


Not sure if you got your cougar running or not, but I had a similar problem and it turned out to be my Crank shaft sensor. I replaced it myself, its fairly easy if you are the type that likes to pull stuff apart and fix it. The part cost about $20. you do have to move the ac compressor over but you don't have to remove it makes the job a lot easier. I am still running the 1997 cougar xr7 30th anniversary edition, it has 160000 miles on it and still running strong. I think these are the best cars mercury ever built, i hope they come out with them again in this body style and platform.
