The neutral safety switch needs to be adjusted so that it is properly aligned. You'll need to refer to a shop manual to get specifics. It shouldn't be very difficult to do yourself, but it might cost a bit if you have someone do it for you. They're all a little different, so the only way to get accurate information is to refer to a shop manual or see if the dealership will copy the page from their manual for you.
I would start by purchasing a repair manual.
there is a problem wit the shifter control knob. (the button you have to push to take it out of park) pretty easy for AUTHORIZED repair center to fix. probably towing the car to repair ctr would be biggest cost. :) (unless they try to screw you which most repair centers main goal is)
It could be water that got under your distributor cap
This is not possible on a modern vehicle like the Villager.
The car doesn't run right, that's what happens.
To disable the factory alarm on a 2000 Mercury Villager, put the key in the ignition and turn it halfway. Let it stay in the spot for 10 minutes and start the car.
There is no power steering in a Mercury Villager at start up in cold weather due to a failing pump or low fluid. Fluid becomes much thicker in cold weather and is much harder to pump.
You don't. The ignition is required to start the car. If it fails you need a new ignition switch.
It is possible that the 1997 Mercury Villager simply needs a tune up. New spark plugs and wires may make a great difference.
Have your cat converter checked out.
NO Emission control only, does not affect performance.
I had this problem and it was my battery,but could also be in need of antifreeze.
Dead battery? Battery cables in need of cleaning or replacement?
Place shifter in "park" and it should start. If not you will need to have towed in for repair.
try your fuel pump relay on your power distribution block under the hood
Amp module, get a new distributor, the parts inside are not serviceable.
If the battery was dead or disconnected all trouble codes will be erased.
A clicking sound when you try to start the car is a dead battery. It may be that the alternator is not charging it properly.
A bad ignition switch, on your 1995, Mercury Voyager, will cause the vehicle not to start. In most cases a bad ignition will cause the engine not to turn over.
start inhibitor relay located next to battery in fuse/relay compartment
Most likely cause is that you have a bad shifter module, which is the shifter itself. I've seen lots of these, try and play with the shifter to get it out of park, and make sure you have the brake pedal depressed. If you can get it out of park take it to a repair shop this way, and leave the shifter in neutral if you have to turn the car off, that way you can still start the car, and still move the shift lever to drive.
low fuel pressure most likely fuel filter
If you mean the shifter is locked in park, then check the sensor on the brake pedal. Also, if you just turn the key to the first position, with the engine off, you will be able to put the shifter into neutral and start the engine from there. Then just slip it into reverse or drive.It will still go into park after.
it's probably not, check your distributor, i had similar problems, changed regulator, fuel pump, car still would stall or hard start. it turned out to be my distributor. i will repeat, this is a problem with the villager, they go bad quick.
Tires perhaps? My 95 Villager would start vibrating right around 70 mph. When I replaced my rear tires the problem went away. The tire tech said that one of the belts had snapped in the tire. It runs great now.
