Car was starting up just fine until I pulled into my gate today, I was pressing on the brakes and then the car chugs for about 2 minutes and dies and now it won't start again. System check in the car says Lamp Outage Error.
1999 mercury mountaineer. Weeks ago engine light came on. Filled gas tank and nee gas cap on. Light went out immediatly. 5 days ago it passed emissions test. Now light back on. Filled gas tank and tightened gas cap but light still on. I occassionally smell gas briefly in truck while driving sometimes.
How long have you had this problem? a few weeks
There is a parasitic drain on the battery it draws over for amps for a few minutes then reduces to a few milliamps for a few minutes and back to a 4 amp draw does this on and off on and off back and forth tell the battery is dead I've pulled the fuses and found nothing
Then when I hit the gas it goes away
No noises just pulls
After extensive repairs including front axles, the transfer case, front brakes (rotors,calipers,pads) front left wheel bearing assembly and front end bushing my mechanic is telling me it needs a front end pinion bushing and states its an extensive job and not worth it. He removed the drive shaft for me to drive it home but states the transfer case will go again if not put back in. I left the vehicle with him for what was supposed to be the final job of "a bushing" in the front end. The car was running fine except foe an occasional clunk which he said was this bushing. I did hear what sounded like a brake pad going on the right front but thought that odd as he had just done all brakes front and back within 6 months. When I went to pick it up he told me it was 3 bushings not 1 and now a passenger side front wheel bearing. Now after picking it up the car drove horrible! He told me after taking the front end again its a pinion bearing and a really extensive job. I've put a lot of money into this car and feel i'm almost there instead of getting a new one. Do you think it's worth it?

I have already changed the battery in the fob and even bought a new fob. The car locks and unlocks and acts like it is synced but then nothing...
Went to check fluids in car and noticed that water in radiator looked like a strawberry shake.
When there has been heavy rains and driving through standing water in ditches etc or taking my mountaineer through car wash, my check/service engine light comes on and starts idling funny. At times when in park it will idle slow to almost dying then rev back up. Then when I get in and put in drive, it acts like its going to die and then revs up and goes. It has done this on and off. This last time though, I noticed the smell of gas at times. The light has now gone off and idling fine.
Where would I bring vehicle to a auto repair or a stero place to check the radio and CD player.
I cannot see the time or the select radio stations. The whole panel is dark.
Battery died , jumped the car . DVD player would not work after power outage. Error message: Connect error -see dealer . can this be fixed ?
The check engine light is on. The truck is cutting of when slowing down to take a turn. Keeps cutting off when coming to a stop.

It said with those codes to check the ignition first but I am not sure what is meant by that. Thanks.

I have went into my brake pedal and look to see if the plug was broken it is not I disassembled it reassembled it and it's still not working also this is the third time which occurred and I need to figure out what the problem is before me and my children are stranded once again
Book and videos say it's on the back side of driver side valve cover. There is a hose coming off there but it is coupled to a pipe.
