Is the battery going dead while you drive or when it's sitting? If it's going dead while you drive check the belt and tensioner. Do this, turn everything on then start the engine and rev it several times then carefully touch the alternator pulley if it's real hot the tensioner is bad and you need to replace it and the belt, in many cases the alternator will need almost 15 HP to turn under load, I hope this helps. Take care. If you have any questions for me use comments and it will show up in my email.

There is actually a possible recall on this issue as it is a known problem with the LCM, or Lights Control Module. Go to the following site:
http://www.arfc.org/complaints/2003/mercury/grand_marquis/

This is one of the complaints:
HELLO, WE HAVE A 2003 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS THAT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE HEAD LIGHTS SHUTTING OFF AT RANDOM TIMES. NOTHING GAVE WARING TO THIS PROBLEM HAPPENING, WE BOUGHT THE CAR USED, AND WAS JUST FINE FOR A YEAR, THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN ONE DAY THE HEADLIGHTS JUST GO OUT. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO(3-1-10). NOW EVERYTIME IT IS DRIVEN WITH THE HEADLIGHTS ON, IT IS GUARANTEED TO HAPPEN AT LEAST ONCE AND SOMETIMES UP TO 5 TIMES JUST IN 3 MILES OF DRIVING ON MY WIFES WAY HOME FROM WORK. THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE LIGHTS BACK ON AFTER THEY GO OUT IS TO PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, SHUT THE CAR OFF, LET SIT FOR A FEW MIN, THEN START AND THEY WORK AGAIN FOR A BIT. THIS IS OVERALL VERY DANGEROUS AND SUPRISING THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT OR RECIEVED A TICKET YET! I AM A ACTIVE MEMBER ON A CROWN VICTORIA FORUM, AND WITH LITTLE SEACHING ON THAT SITE OR GOOGLE YOU WILL SEE TONS OF REPORTS OF THIS BEING A VERY COMMON PROBLEM ON THE 2003-2005 CROWN VICTORIA, GRAND MARQUIS, AND MERCURY MARAUDER. WITH THE HELP OF OTHER MEBERS ON THAT FORUM IT WAS FOUND TO BE A FAULTY LCM(LIGHTING CONTROL MODULE) WHICH HAS A PROBLEM WITH OVERHEATING LIGHTING RELAYS. THE ONLY WAY TO REMEDY THIS PROBLEM IS TO PURCHAS A NEW LCM FOR ANYWHERE BETWEEN $250 AND $600 WITH NO GUARANTEE HOW LONG THAT PART WILL LAST. I ACTUALLY PURCHASED A NEW ONE TODAY. VERY EXPENSIVE FIX JUST FOR THE USE OF HEADLIGHTS, BUT I VALUE MY FAMILIES SAFETY MORE. I WILL BE KEEPING MY OLD LCM TO POSSIBLY HAVE IT REPAIRED FOR WHEN MY NEW PART FAILS AGAIN. THANKS SO MUCH.

The LCM lighting control module may be at fault . Ford had an extended warranty at one point for the LCM . Ask your local Ford dealer .

You have a Parasitic battery drain, check at night for interior lights that may be staying on, check the sun visors for sure.

If it's a front wheel drive motor it's on the drivers side near the steering column and is near the firewall on rear wheel drive engines it's under the windshield wiper cowl on the passenger side of the engine

I am not familiar with this model but often this sort of fault is caused by one of the various inhibitors on the system that stops it's use in a dangerous conditions. Pressing the brake pedal for instance automatically stops the cruise otherwise it would try to speed up when you are trying to slow down. If this is a manual transmition vehicle it will have microswitches on the clutch, gear change, brake and hand brake. Automatics will have them on the brake, gear change and hand brake. Check these microswitches for correct operation.

Most starters are simply bolted into place. A good socket set and a pair of grips should be enough. The bolts could be tight and difficult to get to so you might need to work underneath the vehicle. Safely lift and support the vehicle on axle stands before you do this.

I usually turn to the12Volt 1st...
https://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/1472.html

I trust the website... but not what others may have done previously, so
I still check everything for voltage and / or continuity
before installing.

there should be 14x different wires.
see the link.

I cannot imagine what the uninsulated (bare) wire would be for.
Ground? just for support?
whatever it is...trace it, so you know, but don't use it.
Replace it with something proper.

The cruise control fuse is a 15 amp fuse located at position #17 in the fuse block. That's the only fuse I see in that circuit according to My wiring diagram. I hope this helps. Take care.
