Q: Car not getting power

asked by on

I am not getting any power at all. Is it my alternator?

A: The information provided for your Mercury i...

The information provided for your Mercury is a bit limited, however, I can attempt to point you in the right direction. I assume we are talking about electrical power as you have questioned the alternator. The alternators job is to charge the battery as well as power the electrical system in the vehicle while your Mercury Milan is running. If you are attempting to start the vehicle and absolutely nothing is happening such as no lights on the dashboard, no signs of the starter engaging when you turn the key, it’s likely you are having problems with your battery. To verify this, I highly recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic, they will be able to inspect your car's battery, alternator, and other components to determine why the car is not getting any power.
