Remove the positive battery cable from the battery. When you put it back on it should reset the computer and see if the light goes out the next time you start the car. On 1996 model cars/trucks, you cannot just remove the battery. It will return fast. They use no-volitile memory now and have to be cleard in two ways. Use an OBD-II code reader to clear. If problem returns, then there is still something wrong in the Emission area. The code reader when it gave the code you have presented, should have given brief description, If memory serves me correct for Ford/Mercury, this is related to one of two things. Purge Canister failure, or Purge Valave / Relay assy. The other way to clear the computer after replacing what is believed to be the problem is the engine has to be cycled, (started) 10 to 15 times from cold to full warm condition. i.e. you will have to start car, let it warm up, then let it cool down, and recycle this many times. It is best to take it two a shop and see if they will clear the codes for you, or locate a parts store and see if they carry the OBD-II reader/diag unit. I paid $129.00 for mine. Has save $100's in shotgunning parts.

Opposite of CougarAccording to the Urban Dictionary, a cougar is a woman who likes younger men. The opposite of that would be a woman who likes much older men, but no word could be found for that. A couple of terms that have been used to refer to women who like much older men are "jail bait" and "gold digger." They are both derogatory terms that are best left unused.

Jehovah's Witnesses have no prohibition against the use of birth control. They would, however, object to a method of birth control that resulted in the destruction of an already fertilzed egg since they believe life begins at conception and that this would violate a respect for the sanctity of life.If they so desire. The Awake magazine, printed by Jehovah's Witnesses, of 22nd February 1993 says''Does the Bible condemn birth control? No, it does not. The choice is left with the couple. If a married couple decides to practice birth control, their choice of contraceptives is a personal matter. However, the method of birth control a Christian couple chooses should be governed by a respect for the sanctity of life. Since the Bible indicates that a person's life begins at conception, Christians would avoid contraceptive methods that abort, or end the life of, the developing child.''
