Customer Question
I don't know cause...

I don't know cause check gauges light is on. All gauges are working and fuel is full

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Red light on instrument panel and shows check gauges

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercury?

1996 Mercury cougar

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cougar yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing. Just light came on. Normally when gas is too low first turn on low fuel on center console and later red light check gauges on instrument panel turned on. When you put gas light turned off

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Right now fuel tank is full and light continue on
