Question about 2001 Mercury Cougar
Unplug the alternator and see if the problem stops, if so replace it, a short inside the alternator can cause this problem, however still test good, and keep the battery charged and cause the computer to throw this code. Its possible the belt is a tooth off, however you would experience more trouble than what you have.
