Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar
I had my car (forgot the term) where i had the radio on but the engine not running. the air on cold, full blast and no lights on. and no battery light or anything on...and then just died. so i had my car jumped and i drove for a bout 15 min. stoped it and turned it on again and it worked fine. next day i started fine. i stoped it and 15 min later came back and it would not start. replaced the battery and again it worked fine. but when i came back nothing worked. no radio no lights no locks. dead. atleast before with the dead battery i could get the radio to work for a little bit....idk whats wrong.
Well this is what you should try ,,jump the car get it running
then when its warmed up take the positive lead of the battery
if the car stops the alternator is gone (thats what charges the battery) if the car runs its fine
and if u have put another new battery in it and the alternator is fine look for any broken wires earths or positives that could be making it drain so quick
and make sure your battery levels are full
hope this helps
