Mercury Mountaineer

Why does the radio panel disply on your 1999 Mountaineer not work for months at a time then suddenly work for 20-30 minutes?

I heard it has something to do with the circut board in the radio, their are people on the internet that ays they can fix it. I havet sent mine to them yet but mine does the same thing


This is a very common problem see this website for details


Mine 2000 did the same thing. I called and got a replacement board the guy that has the boards. Used his exchange program and have not had any trouble since.


I had the same problem, take the radio out and raise the resistors in the power supply to keep them cool, still going strong for 6 months.
