Mercury Anti Theft System Help


Asked by Winfrey50 Mar 01, 2020 at 04:20 PM about the 2000 Mercury Sable

Question type: General

Ok, I get in car and starts no issue ... park and leave it for a while, starts no issue. Next time I get in I turn key and NOTHING as if battery dead, but battery tests fine and all lights work strong. Sometimes if I turn key back to the alternator and forward several time she starts ... maybe not though .... but if I jump it she fires right up. Very intermittent and unpredictable. Took to shop and they had 2 days to no avail, said must be security system but "you'd need a Ford engineer to bypass it and the dealer will charge way more than car worth" I just can't figure anything out. All the possibles were ruled out by shop, other than security system, which obviously is a bitch. HELP!!
