Mercury Mariner Start Problems
Alright people, try to help me out here...my girlfriend owns a 2008 Mercury Mariner Premier with a V6 engine...had to add that my girlfriend owns it because I would never own a vehicle made by ford due to it's poor reliability, but anyway, she's owned the vehicle for a little over a year, has 19,000 miles on it, and is having problems. When she turns the ignition, nothing happens. The motor doesn't crank over or anything...just silence. I had to drive to pick her up from work two nights ago, I removed the ignition control fuse and the starter fuse, put the fuses back in, and it started right up. She took the car to the dealer and they couldn't figure out what it was due to the fact that it would start everytime they tried. They had said it may be the actual key...that if it happens again, try to spare key. Tonight, again, I had to pick her up from work. She tried the spare key this time with no results. I removed the same two fuses, reinstalled them, and still nothing. So the car is spending the night at her place of employment tonight and I'm going to have it out with Kings Automall FLM Dealer tomorrow. But has anyone else had this problem? If so fill me in on what the problem was.
