My vehicle is a 2001 Ford Windstar LX and I was having this same exact problem as well and with the information on here went over to my dads to try and fix it. Discovered we didn't even need to take the steering column apart to fix it. We did, lol, but after a lot of looking discovered by laying on our back on the floor board looking up and behind the dash area, discovered you could reach it just fine. My problem had nothing to do with the cable attached to the transmission. In all reality it should have taken 10 minutes max to repair. Also had another problem that I have seen on various sites with this vehicle. Once in awhile the warning lights for the ABS brakes, the brake, the emergency brake and the battery would come on. I think those were the names of them. Anyways this has been happening now for about 8 years (I'm the original owner) and when we took off the air intake so we could see down the steering column under the hood, my dad discovered some frayed apart wires that he had no idea what they were but he put them back together and no more warning lights coming on all the time. I'm happy! Thank you for having this site!
