Question about Mercury Montego

Open Question

The cruise control on my 2005 Mercury Montego stopped working a couple of days ago. Now the cruise light will only come on when I push the button while I am accelerating. When I take my foot off the pedal it turns off right away. This happened a few weeks ago when I accidentally hit the reset button on the steering wheel when I had just turned the cruise on but I somehow fixed it when I hit the reset button again while accelerating to get the cruise to turn on again. I had to hit it as soon a the display said "speed control on" but that seems to have no effect. Basically I am wondering if I can fix this myself by simply reseting the cruise somehow or if it is going to cost me. Thanks.

Look for the obvious. Check for the cable that goes to the throttle to see if it came off or broke. Also look for any leaks in the vacuum system. A small leak will cause it not to work. The unit may be engaging but with one of these problems, it just won't work.

Good Luck

So after you push the button and then press the set button in the steering wheel it does not get into cruise control ? It sounds like a minor electrical problem. If you have warranty still I think the dealership should fix it for free.

Sorry i have not been able to help you.

SOURCE: Change the oil on a 2005 Mercury Montego

Go to a automotive store and tell them you have a 2005 Mercury Montego and what engine it has if there is more then one model and get an oil filter and the oil. Put the car up on ramps and secure it making sure it won't roll back or fall while you are under it. get under the engine and look for the oil pan which should have a bolt in the bottom of it where you can drain the oil. Drain the oil in a proper container and then put the drain plug back in the pan. Then find the oil filter and unscrew it and remove it.. It could be full of oil so watch out and make sure the pan is underneath the filter. Wipe the base where the oil filter screws on and make sure the gasket from the old filter is not still on the engine. Get your new filter and take your finger and put it in one of your new containers of new oil and spread that on the gasket of the new filter. Screw on the filter until the gasket touches the base and then turn only a little more then a 1/4 to 1/2 turn tops. Do not over tighten the filter. Find out what oil the vehicle needs (probably 5-30) and look for the oil cap on a valve cover under the hood. It probably takes 5 quarts but check for sure in your manual or ask when you are at the automotive store. Put the oil in and put the filler cap back on. Now go start the vehicle and make sure you have oil pressure by either the oil pressure guage showing pressure or the oil pressure idiot light goes off and while running check under the car for any signs of leaks. If no leaks then back the car off the ramps and shut the car off on a level surface. Let it sit 10 minutes and check for leaks underneath the car and check the oil dipstick to make sure the proper level of oil is in the engine. Then you are set.

Always check your air filter when changing oil to make sure it is clean as that helps your engine run better and you save gas in the process. Good luck

It is also best to change oil when your engine is warmed up as well.

SOURCE: Mercury Montego won't start. Started 10 minutes

You could check the Inertia switch and see if the fuel pump is cut off.
If that is Okay I would disconnect the battery and see if the system reboots.
If it starts after that, go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan.
If it does not start, then try putting in the security code if you have a keypad. If no keypad, then try your other carkey, your ID chip may have died.

My 2005 Mercury Montego was not accelerating correctly when I pressed on the gas pedal. Fail Safe Mode indicator came on along with a little wrench light. I stopped the car, turned it off for about 30


You should get Autozone, Advance, or Oreily's to scan your vehicle. It is free. It may show the cause, You probably have an unrelated problem with the cruise. A sensor showing a excessively hot reading can trigger the failsafe mode.

Turning Signals keep blowing and signals cancel cruise control.


Sounds to me that the turn signal switch is bad and will have to be replaced. If you could wiggel it around and get them to work tells me that is wear the problem is.
