Question about 1997 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Car won't restart after being driven

After I had driven my 1997 mercury sable to its destination it would not start after I had return to restart it. The battery was charged, their was fuel in the vehicle, however when I turned the ignition on all the electricals worked except the the car starter no sound of it engaing or disengaging. Wen I let it sit for awhile it started right up. But when I drove it got back home I tried to start it and it wouldn't start again. Could I have a module problem or a catilytic control problem..

thank you
Tony

This kind of cars have coming problems with the ignition switch going bad, try to remove the covers arround the steering column and check the ignition switch located on the buttom side of steering column for possible loose body, if loose replace it, but also make sure if you have any aftermarket alarm and if does have it remove for some one since it may afect the starter circuit, also check your batterie conectors for good contact and tie and clean very well

Should be okay if you use a tow dolly. This means you drive the front wheels up on the tow dolly and strap the tires down. The rear wheels are like trailer tires and should roll as if they do when driven.

My son inherited a 1994 Mercury Sable with 12,000 miles that hasn't been driven since 2006 and sat outside in snow and sun. Repairs will cost $2,300. What are odds transmission won't work eith


Well anything is possible, but I would expect the transmission to work given the time and mileage.
Is there any way you could drive it a short distance before spending much money ?
I am assuming you are having the fuel tank drained and the cooling system flushed among other things.
I would change the fluids and try to drive it a few blocks before spending money on much else to see what it will need.

1997 sable cranks won' t start theft light flashing


Some cars can be reset by turning the ignition to on and waiting a while to reset. Could be as much as 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing when it is reset. Others have a different process. If you have the owners manual it may tell how to do this.

This may work also and a lot faster.
insert the key in
the drivers door, turn left, then right
to disarm and reset it.
