the cougar as well as the thunderbird had a factory recall on the headlight switch burning up. if you take the plastic cover out and remove the switch you will probably find the connections are melted on the plug in. i am not sure if ford will still honor this recall because it was issued back in 99 or 00 or that is when i received the letter for my 93 t-bird, which had actually just started having problems with the lights similar to yours. a new switch later and i never had anymore problems. hope this helps

I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40
