2000 Mercury Cougar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 123k miles
For the last 2 weeks my gauges peg out (max out) whenever I start my car and my airbag light will also come on and flash sometimes. The flashing airbag light only happens every few times I start the car but the gauges have been pegging out and going back to normal everytime I start it. Also my anti theft light (red light) does not flash anymore (stopped working when the other issues started) and also my interior lights won't turn on most of the time even if the car is started. Alternator/battery both good. I'm thinking body computer? Please help before my only means of transportation to work and college completely dies. I can't afford to pay Ford to check it out at the moment. Thanks in advance!
