2000 Mercury Cougar Recall

Item Affected:
Date Announced:
Description of Recall:
On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 2.5-liter V6 engines, the battery cable was misrouted and its attachment to the alternator cable was under-torqued. If misrouted, the cable could contact the power steering line and the insulation could wear, resulting in an electrical short. The short could potentially result in a fire, stalling, or a condition under which the vehicle does not start.
Action Need To Fix It:
Dealers will inspect the battery cable to the alternator for damage and if it is damaged, will replace the cable. Additionally, the routing of the cable will be corrected, as necessary, and a routing clip will be added. Also the torque on the alternator attachment of the cable will be checked and, as required, will be tightened to specification. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on March 5, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
