2001 mercury sable will run but won't charge and no batttery indicator light in dash will not light

If it runs you have one of 2 issues. 1. The battery is bad and the alternator isn't able to keep it charged (you will have to jump start it every time the motor is shut off). 2. Your alternator is bad and the battery is running the car (when battery is drained car will stop running) which is my belief as the battery light only comes on when the alternator isnt charging. Have the charging system tested at your local AutoZone/Advanced Auto parts store they normally do it for free.

New battery won't charge, alt. good from bone yard, is there a voltage regulater on this car?

The VR is integral to the alternator. Check the fusible link and the 10 amp fuse in the battery fuse box.

I have a 2001 mercury sable ls and the bearing in one of the pulleys has gone out. how do i replace it?

The idle pulley is the device that you move to take the serpentine belt off and on. The bearing is the Ford alternator bearing, but you will have to press it on and off the pulley (wheel that has a smooth surface pushing against the belt). You can get a replacement pulley/bearing and bolt it back on the adjuster.

Need diagram for 2001 mercury sable serpentene belt

Try this one. Without engine info, most of the regular sites were not so useful, but this one gives many different belts. You'll need to compare your belt number to the ones on the page so you can get the right one, but these are all for 2001 Sables.
