The problem is with your VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) located on the passenger side axle housing. It will cost approx. $300 to have Ford dealer do it.

The transmission is should be controlled by the tcm "transmission control module". The first item to check would be a good visual inspection. If all seems in the norm, then the fluid condition and level. You have to check the transmission level when the car is running at operating temp and in park. If that is ok, the next item would be to have the code read. Autozone will scan your car for free. Once you have a code, it may give a hint as to what system is acting up. That is where I would start.

My ABS light keeps coming on. When I tun the car off it goes off but when I tun it back on and drive about half a mile it comes back on. Any thoughts?


I guess you haven't been around any cars since 1981,
some 30 years

You haven't heard of ON-Board-Diagnostic Systems,
that turn a check light on your dash, when a Govt Mandated
Emissions Problem arises?


The ABS light is a possible Braking System Fault

So from now on :


ANY DASH LIGHT YOU GET

Check for codes
Diagnose the system that set a check light
Resolve /Repair

Who does that you ask?

Check engine&abs light on, speedo and gauges go to 0


there would either be a shorted wire or the computer is malfunctioning. The only way to fix this problem is to have a mechanic put a scanner on your car and test it. AUTOZONE DOES IT FREE other wise it's about $40

99 Mercury sable speedo/tranny


VSS (vehicle speed sensor) Tells the PCM (computer) the speed of the vehicle so the PCM can make the proper information to the TCM (transmission control module) to shift.
YOU are goin gto need a scan tool NOt a code reader to monitor the VSS to see what it is putting out for speed when the car is moving But I believe you need a VSS but do not not Go out and buy one until you have had it tested , and can positively confrim it is bad first. Please rate this a fixya if you find this advice helpful, Thanks Randy
