'96

1996 Mercury Sable • 6 cylinder • 90,000 miles

When I start my car everything works great. As soon as I shift the car (automatic) into gear the radio stops, the power windows don't work, the windshield wipers don't work and the power steering goes out. My mechanic is stumped. Any ideas?

Does the car start up if you try starting it again?

It will start again, and the same problem happens. The engine runs fine, it just seems to be some type of electrical problem. It is the issue with the power steering that has me baffled.

Any codes?

If not

Throwing stuff

What can it hurt?

Disconnect battery for 5-10 minutes

Reconnect

Seen it work on a Cherokee, with radio not working

You owe me lunch if it works

I hope it does, I'm hungry

Let me know where to meet you.

Have them check neutral safety switch on the tranny
Or
Start the engine disconnect the switch, shift into gear check your radio and wipers
