      The usual suspect for the problem you are having is caused by the LCM (lighting control module) and in most cases the fix is to replace it. The BCM (Body control module) will store fault codes when the problem is occurring. To know for sure the LCM is at fault it would be a good Idea to have the codes pulled as this will verify if this is the problem before replacing the LCM.

      Im assuming you have the 1 DIN head unit as stock, if thats the case then it will fit. Most radios are built for OEM specs, i have yet to see a head unit that doesnt fit all applications.

      The only exception is if you have the 2 DIN headunit which is bigger like in a CRV.

    Why does my turn signal keep blowing fuses
    • Spoon Sports
      1/4/2012 Spoon Sports
      probaly a short some place in the wiring on your turn signal switch ie the ground is shorting out your positive making it pulling to much to blow a fuse or either a bare wire rubbing the body, or water in the turn signal housing.

      I also replaced my odometer in my 1990 Grand Maquis. JOY! LOL. Spoon sent you a great link for the repair. Touble with mine was the Florida sun that dried up the little grease that was lubricating the gears. Make sure you check your speedometer too, The grease hardens up & breaks or stops the teeth & or gears.

      Check the fuse for your wiper and check its switch operation. A loose/corroded wires/connection to your wiper can cause your wiper not to operate.

      The relay has to be energized before anything will happen. Did you check for voltage and ground on the coil side of relay as well as the switch side? You may need to check for applicable trouble codes.

      You can check wiring harness on hinge side of door. Lite blue wire with black tracer is voltage, black wire is ground. Lightly tug on the wire, see if it comes loose. Click on the link.

    Door open light and tire monitor malfunction light comes on every time I start the car and stay on.
    When lights are on, remote door locks do not work, rear defrost does not work, interior light stays on. Doors are not actually open and tire pressure is fine.

      What's the mileage? This vehicle might have the 3 years or 36,000 miles bumper to bumper warranty. Call Mercury Dealer to schedule an appointment.
      Let's us know.
      Note: we don't want to mess-up the warranty period.

    What is causing the headlights And interior to come on, on there own when the car is turn off
    • HouseCallAuto

      1. Push each button on the key pad on the driver's door, and see if the key pad illumination light comes on. Wait until it goes back off before pushing the next button. If any button fails to light the key pad, replace the key pad.

      2. If each button lights the key pad, remove the door trim panel, unplug the keypad, and see if the problem still occurs. If it never occurs with the key pad unplugged, replace the key pad.

      It is very common for the key pad on the driver's door to cause this. It gets water in it and corrodes internally. If the automatic head lamps are turned to the auto lamp position, the head lamps will also go on and off with the interior lamps. Ford has an internal Special Service Message (not a TSB) for this problem on full size cars from 1996-2000 (through 4/15/00) to replace key pad with an updated level part for this problem. Often when the keypad is the problem, there will be one or more buttons on it that do not light up the key pad when pressed.

      Thank You sounds like this is my problem, the 9-0 button will not light the key pad, but when the headlights come on pushing only the 7-8 button the car doors lock, is the key pad a dealers part

      Yes, unless you can find a used one cheap. price new and then price a used one and decide what you are comfortable with while weighing the risk of used parts such as this. If you can replace it yourself you might be more willing to try used versus a shop billing you labor more than once should it be defective or short life. New is always the best choice but try this place >> 1-800-905-8580 as I saw a listing for a used one for $30. I have a feeling a new one is like $400 from Ford. It's called a keyless entry pad. The only thing I am not sure about is whether the keyless pad stores any info like the code you have now. I believe that it does not and that replacing the key pad will still work with your old code. I believe that the code is stored in the keyless entry module which you are not replacing. Good luck.

      Thank You, I called an Mercury dealer they wanted124.00 I when to a junk yard took the key pad off a junk car and replace it myself, it cost me 2.80. Thank You for your help
