Mercury Grand Marquis
Check Engine Light

Why would the check engine light stay on when nothing seems to be wrong on a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis?

Just assuming it has between 50,000 and 80,000 miles it is almost certainly the O2 sensor. Very popular after 50,000 miles and hardly ever causes any noticeable problems except maybe a slight drop in fuel economy because it will be running a little rich.

I have a 1998 Mercury that this happens to when the gas level gets below 1/4 of a tank. My brother is a mechanic and said that it's just the O2 level and it doesn't cause any harm. To reset it, just unplug the battery for about 2 minutes, then plug it back in.

I purchases a used 2000 Grand Marquis in January and my check light came on without apparent cause. I had it checked and it was a intake manifold leak. Ford has a recall on these manifolds that ends some time this month and will replace the bad manifold for free. You need to have it placed on a computer at a dealership. Ford lost a law suit about the bad intake manifold recently. .
