Answers :

Replace the ignition module and the distributor pickup and the connector to the ignition module as well if it is falling apart.I strongly suggest you use only Ford parts, the aftermarket ones are cheaper but fail very quickly in summer heat. The connector must be soldered on and shrink tubed at the solder joints to avoid poor connections and erratic engine idle.

When the anti-theft light is flashing rapidly then either it is not seeing the key,or the transciever module is not communicating with the PCM. It could be the transciever or it could be the PCM is not powering up for some reason. I would first try r ... 1999 Mercury Cougar

Hi Expert, I have a mystery for YOU that needs to be solved. I have a 1998 Convertible Ford Mustang. It did not want to start this morning, however, I tried to start it again and it started the second time. Great! I went to work 8:00, then about 1:00 I tried to start it and Nothing, No dashboard lights or any sound was heard, it would not start at all. I got a jump and walaah, it started. At that time, while still running, I took it to an auto car center and they did a Charging system test.
