Asked by Oct 27, 2013 at 11:10 AM about the 2003 Mercury Sable LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My mercury starts fine cold but a few minutes into the drive the radio stops the Batt light comes on and the dash goes out.   Then most of the time the car stalls.    It will start up in a couple minutes and it is if nothing ever happened at all.    Only when it is cold 20 or so and not all the time

First thing to check is if your battery cables/ground connection are corroded or loose.

The ford garage suggested that too. I have and even replaced the Batt because one day it would not crank after sitting but the problem remains. The ford said there are a couple computers that it could be but until it became more constant they would only be guessing.
