2000 mercury cougar wont start

Asked by Oct 25, 2016 at 11:44 AM about the 2000 Mercury Cougar

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car decided it would only bump start (manual)  one
day. Went to put in a new starter and found the old
one in perfect working order when i applied pos
power to the solenoid and the engines cranked.
Then it wouldn't bump start. Found many varous
other problems and repaired, all electrical.
Bypassed security system by grounding white and
black writer in driver door, when i did this i could
actually hear something power down in the car like
zsheewwwww (star wars type shield shut down
noise). Everything now works as it should only the
third bank of the coil pack is not getting signal ago
the coil pack is not firing any plugs.
