SOURCE: 1994 Mercury Cougar-no interior lights

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 they run about $30-$40

My 1996 mercury cougar xr7 V8. Check engine light come on and I took it 2 autozone so they could scan it to see why the problem was. When they hook the scanner up to the computer. The scanner said I had no...

The lighter is the fuse the OBD uses to read the PCM, but Ford and Mercury added a relay to. Depending on the vehicle , they used two different ones. If vehicle has the CCRM is located on the diver side by the radiator and the other is called GEM relay, usually located behind the fuse block under the dash driver side.

Is there a fuse for the coolant fan for a 1996 mercury cougar xr7

Yes, it would be located in the fuse panel under the hood. If fuse panel is clean there should be a diagram with each properly identified. If only numbers refer to owners manual, the numbers will be identifed in that.

Stop lights dont work

Check the bulbs and the fuse, if they are ok, check the brake light switch, it's under dash, near the top of the brake pedal, it might be bad.
