1998 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
Sorry, but this is a long story:
#1. Bought car a few years ago. All was fine for
several months. #2. Alarm was draining the battery with constant blinking. Needed constant jump starts. #3. Son took out what he thought was the major problem with the alarm system. #4. Car began starting all the time for many more months. #5. Car suddenly began not starting again for at least several more months. #6. Called AAA and had battery replaced with a brand new one. #7. Car was starting up again all the time. #8. After several more months, more problems with starting. #9. Brought it in for oil change, tune up, etc. Car was working fine after that for another month or so. #10. Car not starting up, again, for at least another week. #11. Brought car back to mechanic with the complaint. #12. Mechanic eventually uninstalled the entire alarm system, as far as he knew. #13. Car was once again starting up all the time. #14. After a month or 2, failures were occurring yet again. #15. Had AAA come out again to test warrantied battery. Tested A-. Also, no battery drainage was showing.
So please, please, please. Tell me why I need to jump start every day, and need to recharge battery charger every night! I need some serious help on this!
have the same problem?
