1996 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
I have been trying to figure this out for some time now. It seems like it has reverse and second. I have a OBD2 tester it had a VSS error code of P0500 at first I was told it was the TSS that later I found out not but I replaced the TSS any way. I cleared the code and it hasnt come back.
Now it does have a AX4N trans I have replaced the trans fluid and filter. I tested the voltage at the VSS and it reads.56 volts Haynes manual says it should be 1.5 volts. I even tested it at the PCM and it is the same. I pulled the VSS and did the test in the book it shows it is reading the AC voltage when it is spun. To clarify my thinking it is in Limp Home Mode I can drive it it forward and reverse I jack it up and put it in forward it will not shift I can run it up to 50 MPH and it will not shift into first or overdrive. It stays in 1 gear. Now for another thought I put it in reverse it trys to serge forward than it goes into reverse would that just be a normal act? Also when I have it up on jack stands and going forward it is only in 2ndgear at about 2000 RPMs 50 to 55 MPH I set the cruse and the engine hesitates than floors the gas by the time I can hit the cancel button the engine has raced to 5000 RPMs and the speed goes up also.
Thank You for all your help.
