1998 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems

Malfunctioning Headlights

The car had 64600 miles on it and the headlights started going out while driving, which can be very dangerous. The problem is in the Light Control Module which is an expensive part (around $500 to $600 + labor).

Spring in Seat Belt Buckle May Fail

A spring in the seat belt buckle may wear or fail, causing the airbag light on the instrument panel to illuminate. Failed buckles will require replacement.

Misfire due to failed spark plugs or ignition coil

Bad spark plugs or an ignition coil can cause ignition misfire, which will illuminate the Check Engine Light.
