On a 1998 Mercury Mystique : To the left of your tachometer is the seatbelt reminder light and Under your fuel gauge is the airbag readiness light ( if the light stays on or flashes take your vehicle in to have the airbag ( Supplemental Restraint System , SRS ) system checked out / repaired
i have a 1999 cougar mercury vehicle that all of a sudden doesn't reverse.Why?
We figured it out . The switch that controls the dash brightness was turned all of the way up! After adjusting it and restarting the car , the dome light went out.
If your check engine light is flashing , an engine cylinder misfire has been detected
it mean there is a hydraulic or electrical fault on the transmission
Yes, but if it stays on you should plan to take it in soon to have the engine checked. That is why the light is there.
The fog light switch on the 98 Mystique is on the headlight switch. When you turn on the headlights, pull the switch towards and the fog lights should come on. Here is a link to the owners manual for the 98 Mystique http://www.analogstereo.com/pdf/om/mystique_owners_manual_1998.pdf
HAVE AN AUTO STORE OR SHOP HOOK UP THE OBD2 SCANNER TO SEE WHAT CODES ARE
I have a 98 mystique, and when the check engine light comes on, I simply disconnect the positive battery terminal for a couple of minutes. When I replace it, the check engine light is cleared. It resets the computer.
If you want to you could remove the light socket and put in an outlet then plug your light into the outlet.
That would be your LOW engine coolant light You can view the 1999 Mercury Mystique owners manual online at : www . motorcraft service . com ( no spaces ) Click on Owner Guides
The band that controls second and fourth gear has failed. Usually about a $400 repair at a transmission shop.
common problem with 1998 mystique check engine light on
AnswerThere are dozens of things that turn this light on. G0 to auto zone and have the codes read for free.
The recepticle could be a GFI ( ground fault interuptor) which needs to be reset. The circut breaker might have tripped, or you could have a bad plug-in. All are pretty easy to fix. Now if it is a light socket, it could be a bad switch, a tripped circut breaker or a bad light socket.
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
my battery is new for mercery mistque 1999 but the light on the dash board goes on and off why
Yes, a light bulb does precisely this. Also, at one time you could purchase a little device that looked like the bottom part of a light bulb with an electrical socket in the other end so you could screw it into a light socket and then plug some other kind of device into it. I don't know if these are still made or not.
