sorry for the delay...........
Is this U.S.A. Vehicle or Canadian?
What is the Model?
This will depend on a number of things:
Has the Vehicle Battery died or been disconnected?
Is Remote Start in "VALET"?
Is the hood switch working?
When did the Remote Start work last?
Has anything changed?

I show nothing for 1999 mercury monteray
??

Are you sure that is right Model for Mercury?

.

how do you put remote start in valet?
Should be a small "momentary switch" mounted under dash, ash tray, fuse panel etc (depends on where the Installer put it)
Key ON, Press Valet Switch for 5 seconds

.

where woud the hood switch be located?

Can be Factory or added under hood along the edge or in front

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
