You may have blown a fuse, check the radio fuse or cigarette lighter fuse under the dash and see if there are any bad ones, you should have a diagram of what fuse is which on the fuse box cover. check the cigarette lighter and see if its out too, they might not share the same fuse but a lot of times they do. you might have to take each one out one at a time to see if they are bad, if one is bad there will be a little break in the metal in the middle on the fuse. hope this helps!

    you may be able to take it into a ford dealer and get the unlock code, my father inlaw had the same problem and thats what he did. honda didnt charge him so you might give that a shot. i really dont know why they started putting those codes on the stereos, its not going to stop a thief from taking the radio, it will just keep him from using it. lol. yea try taking it into a dealer and see what they tell you, they should have the codes and shouldnt charge you to get them since you have the whole car and not just the stereo. good luck and let me know what they say

Sounds like the battery cables are loose or corroded.
Usually its the battery. But your saying battery is ok.
Is battery new?If no was battery load tested?
Battery cables can be for resistance with a voltmeter.
If you need help with that let me know.

most likely you need to replace the speedometer control the transmission shifter by sending the signal to the pcm and the pcm to transmission shift solenoid..that why it don't shift right

Battery light stays on 2000 mercury cougar with v6 engine battery light stays on

Your alternator isn't putting 14 volts out to the battery. Check the stator wire on the alternator and the 3 wire plug make sure there is no gap on any of the alternator connectors and they are on VERY firm!

Hook up a multimeter inside your car and watch the battery voltage! if under 14volt you got an alternator problem!
