How do u restart my cougar??Apparently,the alarm system was accidently disabled,by the opening of my door,while the car was running!!
I suppose,no one can help me=(I've had it with this dang Cougar!!I'm sick of this alarm system causing my car to totally shut down!I don't have a manual for the 2001, V6, Mercury Cougar....
You have to wait till someone reads your question, which could take up to a day. But to disable your alarm, you just put your key into the ignition and start it. You must have a wiring issue with the passive alarm if this doesn't work. You can also try locking the car and unlocking a door or the trunk wih the key and then try to start the car. See Page 106 of the manual Here is a copy of the owners manual....http://www.cougardb.com/info/pdf/2001%20Mercury%20Cougar%20Manual.pdf

it might be a oxygen sensor going out. that's what happened with mine.
Amanda Your saying the O2 sensor needing to be replaced Can cause the alarm to go off at times? Replacing that can fix it?
