I own the nxt year's model, but if the '89 is anything like the '90, then this might work for you. The alternator is located underneath the air conditioner compressor. This is on the left hand side of the vehicle if you are looking at the car with the hood up. The compressor has all manner of tubes coming off of it with pressure valves on the tubes, and a belt hooked to it. Directly underneath the compressor is the alternator. The alternator has a drive belt attached to it and a single cable attached to the body that splits off four ways. Detatch the cable. then, at the front of the alternator (towards the front of the car), there is a bolt tyhat needs to come off. loosen the bolt and take it out; the alternator should shift downwards, giving you enough play to take the drive belt off. once you remove the drive belt, there is a bolt that needs to come off of the other side (towards the rear of the vehicle) of the alternator. loosen this bolt, take it off. and be careful to get all of the rubber washers in case they fall off, there are two. your alternator should now be removed from the chassis, and you can take it out of the car. I took my oil filter off of my car to let the alternator off more easily; just do whatever works. Then check what model your alternator is and buy a new one. reverse the steps to put the thing back in.

You can replace the alternator on your 1989 Mercury Cougar by removing the alternator belt. Disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the alternator. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.

There is no reset button for fuel. Ford has them but not Chrysler products.
