1999 Mercury Cougar won't start

Asked by Jan 22, 2015 at 09:24 PM about the 1999 Mercury Cougar 2 Dr V6 Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A few weeks ago I had to drop something off at home, but when I went back out to my
car it wouldn't start. It was only off for about 2 or 3 minutes. So it sat for about a week
and then one day I went out and it started no problem. Then it drove great for about 2
weeks and now it won't start again. When I turn the key it clicks once, but the engine
doesn't turn over. The headlights still turn on bright and I tried jumping it, so I don't
think it's a battery issue. Any ideas?
