Where can you get a fuse diagram for a 1996 or newer Mercury Sable?
The fuse diagram is in the owners' manual. However, it is incomplete and ambiguous. Using terms like GEM and ICP. Nowhere, by the way, does it explain where the fuse for the parking and running lights is located. Also, a lot of the chassis electicals run through the "GEM", the Generic Electronic Module. This is the "black box" that only the dealer can diagnose! I have had all of the running lights and parking lights go out on my 2001 Sable, and have found NOTHING on the web that can help me. Looks like we are destined to take the car to the dealer where they will use their magic boxes to diagnose the problem. == == = Answer = The Owners manuals have detailed illustrations and information regarding the two fuse blocks / panels, and the various vehicle systems each fuse connects to.
= Answer = Autozone has the fuse diagrams online - see "Related Links" below
= = Ford makes all the Owners Manuals for their entire lineup, 1996 and newer, available online: www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

Only the overflow bottle seems accessible but where do you add coolant directly to radiator in your mercury sable 1996?
Well... The "switch" itself - that turns the motor on/off & the various speeds, is mounted to the panel on the dashboard. In the 1996 and newer models, that panel also integrates the radio controls. See "Related Questions" below for specific directions on removing the panel to get at the 'switch'. There are also many 'Related Questions' that covers other issues involving the blower motor, from fuses to how-to replace it.
According to the 1996 Mercury Sable Owner Guide : The engine cooling system capacity is : For the 3.0 liter " VULCAN " V6 engine ( 11.6 U.S. quarts ) For the 3.0 " DURATEC " ( 10.6 ) They came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A )
