Battery dead, or starter problem? My 1992 381i won't start. The battery has at least some juice in it (I can turn the headlights and interior lights on). But the digital clock has re-set to 0:00, suggesting there could be a battery problem. When I try to start, it won't turn over. After turning the key to "start" once or twice, I receive a rapid clicking sound. I tried to jump the car, but that had no effect. Don't know whether this is a starter problem, or a battery problem. Any thoughts?

My 1999 cougar has issues.All lights,dash lights,headlights pulse dim to bright. After driving the car it sometimes will not turn over, it is not even getting power to the starter solenoid when it does this. This problem seems to resolve itself after 15 to 20 minutes, although sometimes will not turn over for days. This problem also causes the motor to surge slightly. Obviously its electrical,but there are no repair manuals available for this vehicle, has anyone else experienced a problem like t

1999 Mercury Cougar with automatic transmission, car was running fine, then it wanted to shift while driving, and the speedometer dropped to 0, with jerky motions. Same thing 3 years ago and dealer said they replaced the instrument cluster for $700. Doing research, doesn't look like that could have been the problem. Can you tell me what to look for? Possible speed sensor or transmission range sensor?

What could possibly cause a 1999 Mercury Cougar to lose its' brakes when pulling into a parking space and then, after putting it into park, starts to smoke out from underneath the dashboard area from under the hood. The fire department came and put it out saying it looked as if the insulation was smoldering. Could this be an electrical problem? The headlights would always flicker everytime I would start the car, and would continue to flicker off and on as I pushed on the gas to drive. The tow tr

Thought my driver side headlight went bad, but I wiggled it and it came back on. I then noticed that the connection behind the headlight was the problem so I purchased a new connection and attempted to install it. When doing so, I test he connection and it was initally good, but then all of a sudden I lost power to the (driverside) headlight. Is there a fuse controlling the driver side headlight or is it another problem?
