Place a volt meter on the battery posts must be 12 volts or higher if not charge battery, if ok place the meter across battery cable terminals ,if less than battery voltage clean battery posts and terminals fault found. If ok go to starter motor check voltage from large cable to starter body must be battery voltage if not repair cable , if ok check battery voltage on small wire at starter motor must be battery voltage with ign key in start position , if all ok replace starter motor.

There are a lot of possibilities. Bad starter relay, Bad ignition switch, bad starter solenoid, bad starter, anti theft engaged. First try hitting the starter while someone has the key in the start position.

SOURCE: OBD II Location 07 Mountaineer

I'm going to take a guess and say likely to be in the passenger compartment. Sometime, they are near the glove box. You can also look under the driver side compartment. There should be a plastic protective cap. Use a flashlight.

SOURCE: Power running board is stuck will not open all the way.

I had the same problem last week, I took it to the dealer because it was still under warranty. He said it is due to a part that is commonly corroded and needs replacing. I am waiting on the part now. Not sure what it is but I can post when I find out. I am in Wisconsin, so the running boards take a lot of abuse in the winter

2004 Mountaineer no start no crank? Battery, starter, fuses, relays all good. No code errors. PATS problem. Original keys&fobs all good even reset manually and good. All dash lights functions ok.

. quick flashing when ? when trying to start the vehicle ? If yes you need to have it checked for codes . Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are . If that light is flashing while trying to start the vehicle codes are present in the module that controls PATS . Instead of guessing have towed to a qualified repair shop . Because you have no idea how to diagnose this system .

Starter won't engage on my 2002 mercury mountaineer, battery is good,and starter is good, it has power, but the fuel pump won't work

If the starter motor won't crank, I'd have to check starter motor wiring circuits. Any testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the crank position and is usually wired through the neutral or clutch switch, depending on the tranny. You may have a starter relay, I haven't looked at your wiring. The starter is usually grounded through the engine block
I haven't looked to see if your security system may disable starter and fuel pump or if those are two separate issues?

Can anyone help with an intermittent starting issue with a '98 mercury mountaineer?

If the motor turns over, but not start. Have the "crank shaft sensor" checked/replaced Ford part# 184768 $27.98 parts $230.00 labor). I chased this problem for several years. The crank sensor finally failed completely and the mechanic was able to find the problem.
Good luck

Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
