MERCURY COUGAR STEERING PROBLEM

1999 Mercury Cougar • 87,000 miles

The steering wheel clicks and locks up while driving. What would cause this problem.

The most likely cause is a clock spring coming apart. That is a wound-up ribbon cable in a plastic housing under the steering wheel. Usually you'll find the horn and / or cruise control switches won't work or the air bag warning light is on.
