Having problems with your 1999 Mercury Cougar ?
1999 cougar been setting for a couple of months tried to jump it and all i get is a continuous clicking sound when i turn the key is this just the battery needing to be charged or something else?
Yes, most likely the battery or it's connections. Make sure connections are clean and tight. Charge battery (free quick charge available at most large parts stores. The can also test battery condition for free). Once the battery is checked out and it is determined it just needs a charge, or requires replacement, it should crank over. Good luck!
If the battery is the original i would replace it but yes the battery is too dead and if it is old enough the battery could be dead beyond recharging
