just pull the fuse from the fuse box under the dash much easier than the disconnecting the neg battery cable. look in the manual under fuses emu

Never thought of that, but I would still recommend disconnecting the battery anyway. Actually I would recommend taking it out all together, it gave me more room to work.

I did the t/h fix and now the check engine light makes surprise appearances. It will come on for a couple of days and then just turn itself off.

Anyone else have this problem?

How do I run check engine codes on a coug?

While the car is running, hold down the top and bottom buttons, I think they are reset and units, hold them down and turn the key like you are trying to turn over the car again. You will see the lights change, release the two buttons at the same time. Then use the select button to scroll through all the stuff, speed, RPM, engine temp, ect. At the end you will see the flashing 4 digit code...if you have one.

Personally I don't use that at all, because all it does is make me worry. For the longest time I would get the low voltage code, but my battery and alt are fine. Now I get the fuel sender circuit failure every once and a while. Nola has had that code come up now and again for the past 6 months. Nothing wrong so far.
