Question about Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Yes hello my name is george. I have a mercury sable 2000 and I have a bit of a problem. I can only start my car in nuetral, if I start my car in park I can shift to drive or reverse. Also my brake lights do not work ever since that happened and I even tried switching the bulbs. Do u think you know the problem, is it just a fuse? If so how much would it be?

I think the problem is what is called the brake switch, not a fuse. It is a little switch with a plunger on it that lets the car know when you have pushed the brake pedal. The car has a safety system that will not let it start until it knows you are on the brake pedal, so without this input it will not start. The exception is if it is in neutral, which you obviously have witnessed. It is connected either to the pedal way up under the dash or on a bracket behind the pedal, also up away from the actual part you put your foot on. On many of the fords it is blue with black plastic (though don't count on this to identify it). Not sure of price, call a dealer, but it shouldn't be much if that is the problem.

I have a whining noise coming from my 1999 Mercury Sable. Starts at about 20 MPH and increases getting the loudest around 40-60 mph then holds steady, have shifted to nuetral and whining stays. I believe...


Could be anything connected with the front wheels.
So that includes hub-wheel bearings, axle joints, the differential gears, and the transmission.
