Question about 1988 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Headlights suddenly turn off

The headlights on my 88 Cougar suddenly turn off for a minute or 2 while I am driving and I can hear a crackling noise behind the dash. Only the low beams don't work, the high beams still work. There is no particular time when this occurs.

Take off the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. While waiting for that make sure you have all the ground straps connected that go to the battery cable end and to the engine.

A/c suddenly stops blowing


Maybe your blower fan is faulty.
The whine you heard could be dry/seized fan motor bearings or foreign matter (such as leaves/twigs) in the fan.
If fan motor is faulty it will need to be removed for repair; but first check as below:-

1) Check fuse is ok.
2) Check motor runs if power applied directly to it. - If motor OK, check:-
3) speed resistor module (usually in fan ducting, in air flow),
4) fan switch operation.

Headlight headache


Soounds like you have a wire problem. Look under your dash at the headlight switch and the connector for any melting....repair as necessary. Look also around the headlight wiring....sounds like you have a wire that is shorting out.
