Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Are you good with wire diagrams, wire testing the repair?

Will the PCM communicate with a scan tool?

Key on, is the check engine light on, and the theft light off?

Key on, no com to scanner, theft light is off.

Is the check engine light on with the key on?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 29 days ago
No, just oil and seat belt lights

OKay so first off we need to do a communication test shown here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/l5kysaedatkbtnh/marqPCM.pdf?dl=0

Then a test to see if all PCM powers and grounds are good with this diagram. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wwoydptep475hu3/marqEP.pdf?dl=0

Once that is done all may be good but unknown till this first hurdle.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

Hi moose, just getting back to the G Marq. The links for the com test have been terminated so could you please send them again. Thanks

The links had expired because this post times out tomorrow from not being rated in the first 7 days. It happened a day early. They are back active.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately the links to the store with had incorrect wiring colors to test. The resistance values were good on the one test. No power through the trans switch at pcm, unable to test power at trans switch.

Which test number has the incorrect wire colors?

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
At the trans switch is supposed to be a red/yellow power wire. No red/yellow there.

I sent tests B1-3. None of them mention the TR sensor, nor a red/yellow wire. I do not know what test I sent you are referring to. Here is the TR sensor wire diagram.
