F150 TRANSMISSION

1994 Ford F-150

Transmission problem
1994 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 123k miles

Changed rear brakes and wheel cylinders and now I can't get the truck into gear. Any gear. The shift lever just slides through the range and on the way back to park it grinds a bit in reverse. Also, the ABS light is on. Any ideas on where to start looking? Any information would be appreciated.

Lets grab the codes as a first step: RETRIEVING TROUBLE CODES Ensure ignition switch is in RUN position (engine does not need to be running). Locate Black test connector. See COMPONENT LOCATIONS. Connector has 2 mating halves. One has a Black/Orange wire; other has a Red wire. Disconnect connector. Connect jumper wire to connector terminal with Black/Orange wire. Ground other end of jumper wire for 2 seconds. When ground circuit is completed then broken, Yellow REAR ANTI-LOCK warning light will flash trouble code. Code will repeat until ignition is turned off. Code consists of a number of short flashes followed by one long flash. Count each flash, short and long, to determine code number. For example: short, short, long, is Code 3. Perform appropriate code test after retrieving code. A Code 16 indicates system is operating properly. If Yellow light does not flash, go to TEST D - YELLOW LIGHT CHECK OKAY, BUT DOESN'T FLASH TROUBLE CODE under PRE-CHECK TESTS.

Test Connector is under the right side of the dash, below right corner of the glove box.
