Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Have you checked injector pulse using a noid light while cranking? Does the noid light blink while cranking?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I stated that in the question, I checked injector pulse with a noid light while cranking. It does not blink.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that information. Sorry I missed that part. What is the TPS voltage at key on engine off and while cranking?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
5 volts key on engine off amd 5 volts while cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

NO, I am talking about the signal voltage. Not the reference voltage

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

The reason I ask is because you might just have a bad throttle position sensor.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Maybe I'm checking the wrong wires? There are 3 wires. I get 5 volts for the reference voltage and 4 volts for the other key on engine off and cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I do believe it will be the gray and white wire. You will need to have the key turned ON, connector plugged into the TPS and back problem the gray/white wire to get a reading.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
grey and white wire had 1.0 volts key on engine off and 1.3 volts while cranking. The wire is back probed while harness is plugged in. Grey with white wire is middle wire in the harness.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Is the throttle plate closed all of the way?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I believe so, yes.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Normal closed throttle voltage of the TP sensor should indicate 0.6-1.1 volts. If the throttle plate is open or if the signal is too high when cranking, the PCM will put the engine in clear flood mode and it will not pulse the injectors. Was the TPS replaced? How about the PCM?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
TPS and PCM are original, a known good PCM was installed same part numbers and everything. But there was no change. The TPS voltage doesn't seem that high out of the indicated range. The fuel pump won't prime as it is suppose to if that helps you. It only turns on for a split second when the key is turned on.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

If your sure that the 5 volt reference is not shorted to ground, I would suspect a faulty input to the PCM. Did you check the powers and grounds?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

If not, that would be your next step.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm pretty certain that it is not shorted to ground. Otherwise I would get 5 volts would I? No I haven't checked power to grounds. How can I do that and where are the grounds? I don't have access to wiring diagrams and whatnot.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

You can check the powers and grounds right at the PCM. I can send this information over shortly

Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

The red wire going into pin 71 and dark green/orange wire going into pin 55 should have FULL battery voltage on them with the key on.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

Both of those have 12.65 volts with the key on
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I think this would be easier over the phone.. but there is an additional cost.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

So no injector pulse and no power to the fuel pump while cranking.. correct?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

Correct no injector pulse and no power to fuel pump while cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Was the CCRM replaced?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is the CCRM the same as the EEC box?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I dont believe so. It is the contsant control relay module. Do you have power on the red wire going to the idle air control motor with the key on and cranking?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I just did a search for it and it looks like the box that I did replace so yes I belive it's the same. I can't check that sensor right now as it is storming pretty bad here. But I will check it as soon as possible.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok no problem. In addition, if that checks out good, I want to see if the gray/red wire has power on it coming out of the CCRM with the engine cranking over.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok I will check that too. I will let you know asap.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I have power at the red wire on the IAC sensor. There are 2 grey with red wires coming out of the CCRM. One has 12v key on and whole cranking. The other has no volts key on and about 0.3 volts while cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I suspect thats our problem. Both need to have power leaving the CCRM when cranking provided I am reading the diagram correctly. Keep in mind, it needs to have the correct powers going into it in order to work.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

There should be 6 wires going into the CCRM that have FULL battery voltage with the KEY ON

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

Ok sounds good. Thank for checking for me. Was the CCRM replaced? It might just be bad..

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I did try a new one from the local auto parts store it made no changes.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok then you will need to figure out why that wire coming out of the CCRM does not have power on it while cranking

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok how do I do that, it was one of the gray wires I belive.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Try powering up that wire gray/red wire leaving the CCRM on pin 5 and see if the fuel pump comes up.

Hello and sorry for the delay! Does the engine start and run when you power up pin number 5 at the CCRM?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No it did not start and run when I supplied power to pin number.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, thank you for that information. The next step is to check all other inputs to the CCRM with the key on and while cranking.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question

Hello and sorry for the delay! Can you tell me if the PCM is activating the fuel pump relay when turning the key on or when cranking?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Hi that's ok, I don't think it is because the fuel pump does not prime when the key is turned on.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Right, thats what I want to see. The PCM is responsible for this. But you said it was replaced?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It was replaced with a known good one out of a running vehicle same part numbers as what was in the vehicle originally.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

And is it installed in the vehicle?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The original is installed in the vehicle, are there some wires that I can check coming from the pcm to see if it is powering the fuel pump and injectors the way it should.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

But you can still access all of the wires going into the CCRM. That where we need to check.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have full access to check the wires going into the CCRM.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Then we need to check that light blue and orange wire for a signal when turning the key on and while cranking.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok how do I do that?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

With a voltmeter or a test light.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What kind of voltage do I need to see there? 12 volts?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

IT should change from 12 volts to ground or from ground to 12 volts as the key is turned on.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok I will check that in a few minutes. Is there anything else I can check?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

YES please verify all of the powers going into the module again as well as all of the grounds.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Could you give me a list please.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I would like you to check this and report back a to what you have found.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Looks like everything checks out accept for pin 21 (green white wire) but it looks like that has to do with the ac clutch so that isn't the problem. I check every wire on the CCRM with a test light. They all came on with either power or ground attached.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

So what does the blue/orange wire have on it key on and cranking? Power or ground?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I will check that as soon as I can.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

ok

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It had power. Test ligjt connected to ground and applied to wire light comes on and fuel pump powers up.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

So your saying that you grounded this wire and the fuel pump ran? Was the key on when you did this test?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Correct and yes when the key is on the fuel pump will run, however the car still will not start. I'm wondering where the fuel injectors get their signal from. It seems that the problem is that the fuel pump and the fuel injectors are not coming on as they should.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

The fuel injectors get a signal from the PCM.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is there a way to check that, what do we check next where do we go from here?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

YES, you need a scan tool that can read live data to see if there is engine rpm while cranking.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am getting approximately 150 rpm while cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Does the check engine light STAY ON or GO OFF while cranking?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Looks like it goes off while cranking.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you sure about that?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm quite sure.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

The only other sensor that could cut off injector pulse while cranking that I am aware of would be a bad mass air flow sensor.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok how can we test that?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

You cant really test it if the engine is not running. I would just try a new one

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Or maybe disconnecting it.

Ok I will try it in the morning and let you know the results.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you sure the anti theft or security light is on on or flashing when trying to start the engine? No anti theft codes in the computer?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Have you tried using another ignition key?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The theft is not on, nor does it ever illuminate. Also I only have one key.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

It should come on with the key on for a bulb check. Maybe the bulb is burned out

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It's possible, or maybe it doesn't have anti theft? Is there a relearn procedure?
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

NO, no relearn procedure. The PCM needs to ground that light blue/orange wire (that I had you test earlier) when the key is turned on. If not, the PCM is at fault or there is a security issue going on. Hands down.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
when I checked that wire it was grounded correct?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What does the anti theft system disable when it is triggered? Would I still be able to crank the car over. Or is it suppose to cut that out. Also does it turn off the fuel injectors and fuel pump or just the injectors?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also I just read that some 1997 ford taurus' did not come with a theft light. That would lead me to belive that I might not have one at all.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

The dash should still have a theft light built into it. It should come on with the key on for a bulb check.

The PCM cuts the fuel pump and injectors when the anti theft is triggered.

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok I will have to take the dash apart then and see if there is a bulb there. But what about what I read that some 1997s do not have anti theft system?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Pulled the cluster, it does in fact have a theft bulb but it is an led or diode. So it is not burned out and there is no power that ever goes to that theft terminal which makes me believe that there is no theft system on this vehicle. I also unplugged the mass air flow and no change. Perhaps there is more wiring I can take a look at. It just seems everything coming in and going out of the CCRM checks out.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago
I agree. The problem is not the CCRM. I suspect it is a theft issue or the PCM installed may need to be programmed to allow it to run once it is installed.
Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I don't think it is a theft issue as there is no power that goes to the theft socket and the PCM is the original PCM that t he vehicle came with from the factory.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago
By now we are beating a dead horse. We can talk about this until we are blue in the face. I am going to leave this question open for other experts. Good luck!

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

All 97 Sables came with passive anti - theft. If the led is dead then that issue needs to be addressed before anything else, most likely the cause of the entire problem. Start by checking fuses 23 and 10 in the interior fusebox for power on both sides key in the run position. If those fuses have power on both sides then I would replace the PATS module located behind the radio panel. After replacement the keys will need to be programmed at the dealer or by using the method below:

  • Insert an unprogrammed encoded key into the ignition lock and turn ignition switch to RUN. The THEFT indicator will begin flashing.
  • Follow this procedure three times: After 15 minutes of flashing, the THEFT indicator will extinguish. Within five minutes after the THEFT indicator has gone out, turn the ignition switch once to OFF for a second, then back to RUN. The THEFT indicator will resume flashing for another 15 minutes.
  • After the third time (at 45 minutes from start), the control module will erase all stored keys and memorize the unprogrammed key as valid. This key will now start the vehicle. Additional keys can be programmed using the Spare Key Programming procedure:
  • Cycle ignition switch from RUN to OFF with a programmed key.
  • Within 15 seconds after this cycle, insert a new encoded key into ignition switch and turn to RUN or START.
  • If programming is successful, the THEFT Indicator will illuminate for two seconds and the control module will enable the vehicle to start.
  • Repeat until all chosen keys have been programmed, up to 16 keys total.
  • If programming is not successful, the THEFT Indicator will:
    • Flash for one minute if no key code is received. The key is either damaged or is a non-encoded key. (Try a new key and start procedure over again.)
    • Flash for 15 minutes if key code is received yet vehicle is disabled. The key was not programmed successfully. Start procedure over again.
  • If programming is not successful, possibly the new key was not inserted within 15 seconds, all 16 key codes have been stored, or the key is a non-encoded key. If the key was not encoded or inserted within 15 seconds, repeat procedure.

Hello sorry for the delay, I do have power at fuse 10 and fuse 23 but I'm not sure why I would have to replace the pats module because I have power to a fuse. One of those fuses powers the CCRM so if it didn't have power then nothing would work. Also my led theft light is not bad I applied power to it and it lights up.
Mercury Mechanic: Kenny Z., Senior Master Tech replied 1 year ago

It sounds like you have the problem under control and don't need expert advice. Though seeing that the pats led works when bypassed and both fuses that power the pats module have power has pretty much condemned the pats module in every way would lead me to replace it. If you want to continue down this road of replacing and substituting parts without any solid diagnosis then by all means continue on and best of luck!

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what you are saying is if I had no power to fuses then the pats module is good? Also if I had a theft problem wouldn't the theft light be on? Also no parts have been replaced or substituted, these were suggestions from one of your experts on this site.
Mercury Mechanic: Kenny Z., Senior Master Tech replied 1 year ago

If you had no power to the fuses then that would warrant further investigation as to why. You have a theft problem being that the light never works unless you jumper it. If the module has failed how can it light the light to indicate a problem?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
New fuel pump, new plugs and wires were done before I purchased the vehicle. The new CCRM and different ECU were the suggestions of an expert on this site. But back to the theft issue. Now I understand why you suspect the pats module being that it doesn't cycle itself with the key. Now we are on the same page. Is there a way that I can test the unit? Check wiring going in or coming out of it. I just hate to throw another part at it.

Hello again and sorry for the long delay I have been out of town for sometime. I found 2 1997 Mercury Sables in good operating condition and 1 1997 Ford Taurus in good operation condition (starts, runs, drives) I checked to see if any of them had a theft light that illuminated at anytime. None of them did and they were all in operable condition. I did some digging once again and did find the culprit. It was a stretched wire leading to the CCRM. After making the repair all of the issues were resolved. Sorry but you did not fulfill my question and solve my problem. Next time perhaps might go better for you. But thanks for your insight anyways. Have a good one.
