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).

2006 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems
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.
The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail. Common symptoms of a defective TPS can be rough idle, hard starting, hesitation on acceleration, poor fuel economy, and stalling.
Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The intermediate shafts connect the steering column to the steering gear. Vehicles in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because severe corrosion can damage the lower intermediate steering shaft. This can cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and separate at the lower steering column bearing. Separation will result in complete loss of steering ability. Dealers will replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and inspect the upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing for damage, they will be repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.
Additionally, Vehicle owners located where salt is not used who have concerns regarding their steering will have a one-time option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.

When I put mt brakes on the car seems to speed up
The lights go on without turning them on and when I shut off the car they pop on or stay on for 1/2 hour or more. They have come on and gone off while driving. I had it back to the dealership and it happend to them and they finally siad they fixed it after about a week there. They had a specialist check it out. After I had it home about 6 months it started again when I returned it to Holman they said it was due to an after market remote being installed. NOT SO because it happend before I had the remote start installed and I had it done by a certified company who do most of the large dealerships work. They refused to repair it and then Holman wouldn't repair it. Now I am on my 4th battery in as many years and I AM DISGUSTED. Out of Warranty and out of PATIENCE> My car has 36,000 original miles and it is babied so I know we take great care of it but I HATE IT NOW AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET RID OF IT>>>
2006 Mercury Grand Marquis. 45k miles on the car and I kept getting the high beams from oncoming drivers at night. It could not handle any additional load without significant rear end squat. I installed Made in the U.S.A. replacement coil springs in the rear and what a difference. Car now has a nice rake and vast improvement in road manners. No need to fiddle with headlight adjusters now. I also had a stuck front strut at 40k miles. I replaced both struts only..Wish now that I replaced the springs as well. Been happy with the car otherwise...These items are pretty cheap if you are doing it yourself.
