Check the coolant level in the radiator when it is cold.


**Actually the check coolant light indicates the reserve is low. When facing the engine with the hood up...look to your left and you should see the tank. Fill that to the fill line and then run the car until the thermostat starts to pull the coolant...add when it gets low and until it stops taking fluid. Do not add directly into the radiator unless the reserve tank is empty.

This is the coolant level idiot light, Mercury messed up when they designed this and the light goes on when the coolant is well within tolerance. You can either replace the sensor with a new one from ford that has been redesigned, or you can top off the coolant to just at the Max line, or to just a little above, that should turn the light off.
