Asked by Feb 06, 2014 at 01:08 AM about the 1997 Mercury Villager 3 Dr LS Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the battery removed neg. cable first put in the new battery and hooked up neg. cable last. Fired the car up and the check engine light was on and it wasn't on before replacing the battery. Any ideas? Is the light a result of something I did?

Possibly not. Try removing just the negative cable again for 20mins and reconnect and see if the light goes out. If it goes back on, it might just be a coincidence. Scan for codes.

Had my doubts but dang it worked! Thanks
