Re: Taurus X transmission woes. Any ideas?

What have you had done to try to correct the problem? Are you continuing to drive it as is? I know the pickle you are in - I've wasted more money on car experiments than I care to admit. Although I've driven 600+ miles since fixing this problem ( new OSS and reset ) I still wonder how the motor will...

But there is one correction: You: I really think it's an electrical problem, strange how you can clear the code and it runs fine for a while without replacing anything." I DID replace the OSS ( $500 ) AND then cleared the code when the problem reoccurred ...

2008 Taurus Center Console Transmission Selector Lights Out

2008 Taurus SEL: Can you provide pics or diagrams on how to inspect gear selector lights - mine are out. Appears the side tabs that lock the housing in place are in pretty tight and I don't want to break them. Also, headlamp dial rim is not illuminated, I bought the car used and this is how it came,...
