Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is Scott
Are the headlights dim when trying to start? If they are the battery is either low on charge or bad.
Let me know, thanks Scott
Ok, is the red theft light flashing really fast when trying to start the car?
Sound like the instrument cluster is losing voltage to it. Do you have a voltmeter to test?
Have you tried jumpstarting it?
Ok, let me know what happens
Ok, I may be a corroded connection at the battery, or maybe a starter that isn't working. Do you have a voltmeter to test?
Try shifting to neutral and see if the engine will start, maybe the transmission range sensor is not indicating park.
Bingo, you found it, replace that starter and you should be all set.
If you need starter replacement instructions, I can get those for you also, if you are finished please take the time to rate my service so I can receive credit. Thanks for your business!!
