Question about 2000 Mercury Sable
I CHANGED THE BATTERY IN MY 2000 MERCURY SABLE,SINCE THEN THE AUTO HEADLIGHS AND AC WONT WORK ,AC JUST BLOWS HOT AIR.SUGUSTIONS
My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

You need to have your GEM module reconfigured after battery disconnect. It controls many functions. It may have also been damaged during battery change due to a voltage spike. Dealer can test it. Call a dealer service dept and describe symptoms and see what they say.
Module Controlled Functions NOTE: Prior to removal of the generic electronic module (GEM), it is necessary to upload module configuration information to the scan tool. This information needs to be downloaded into the new module once installed. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .
NOTE: Electronic modules are sensitive to electrical charges. If exposed to these charges, damages may result.
The generic electronic module (GEM) is the only multi-function module on this vehicle.
The GEM constantly monitors its subsystems for concerns. If a concern is found in one of the subsystems, the GEM will record the concern in the form of a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).
The ignition switch position is very important to the GEM functionality Erratic or unexpected GEM functions can often be traced to problems with these GEM inputs.
The GEM controls a variety of systems:
