2006 Mercury Mariner Questions

No codes come up. First it just clicked checked battery it was fully charged changed the starter now there is nothing

makes no difference if the lights are on or off. Yes the dimmer swithch is on full. The car does have auto off/on for the headlights.

Do you use them to pull it out, or do you collapse the compression brackets with them or what?
Thanks Have a cd that isn't working and think easiest thing would be to replace but need to get out first.

2006 Mercury Mariner Reviews

Has been a great car. Drive it every day for work. Done regular maintenance and have had no problems.

VERY expensive to repair... when the transmission goes, its gone. Mechanic described it as looking like a grenade went off. $3300 all said and done. Even the alternator cost $400. Great little car in the snow, but the things just too expensive to repair...

I bought this car and have loved every min of it. But, when it hit 70000 miles, the tranny went out. The dealership said it was due to not flushing the transmission. So, I suggest doing what they say and save yourself 5000. Thats what they charge. The flush is scheduled every 30000 miles.
