Question about 1998 Mercury Mountaineer
In most Ford products the lights for the wiring are connected to the fuse for the radio itself unless it's for the clock in which that has power all the time but has nothing to do with the lighting. I have seen in some cases where the GEM can cause this as well as some fuses for the instrument cluster but in most cases there you would have lighting problems in more then just the radio or CD player. I did not look at the wiring for your vehicle so am not sure but can if need be. I did give you a picture of the layout and explanation for each fuse in both your fuse panels and you can make an educated guess on which ones to try and will see the ones you won't even need to bother with. I believe you are looking at a wiring problem but could be wrong, I am not perfect (just don't tell my wife) but have been a mechanic for over 25 years, own my own shop and am a Ford electronics specialist but of course they are not all the same. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. if you don't and would like a copy, you can email me at email@example.com with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. Here are your pictures and I hope they help.....Good luck.
