The range sensor is located just to the left of the battery on the automatic transaxle. It is connected with 2 bolts.

Doesn't look like anything, unless you have done the
proper testing to find a failed part

How about going to a dealers parts dept & give them your VIN #
to find the part #,then buy on Amazon or Rock Auto

Doubt that switch has anything to do with OD

What is does the code mean p0708 on a2000 Ford Contour?


The code indicates a problem with the Transmission Speed Selector Switch. It's located on the transmission where the gear selector cable is attached. It sends a signal to the computer, telling it which gear you have selected and which gear the transmission is in, and the computer then controls the shift according to conditions (throttle position, engine RPM, manifold vacuum, and etc.) The problem is most likely in the switch itself. Here's a link where some good instructions are given for changing the switch. http://www.justanswer.com/ford/628on-ford-contour-need-know-transmission-range-sensor.html

Where does the rubber hose by the transmission range sensor go to on a 99 ford contour 4 cycl


There is a small vent hose that mounts on a black plastic clip by the battery hold down bolt/ nut., if not properly installed fluid will leak from the transmission, while driving the vehicle, we had a new battery installed and the little hose dropped down toward motor.

Transmission jumping and over drive light flashing ford contour 1996


If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

Code 0708 in Ford Contour 1997


Trouble code P0708 means:Transmission range sensor circuit high input .
Other words the "neutral safety switch". it may have gone bad or the wire harness is damaged. It's mounted on top of the transmission where the gear selector cable connects to the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps.

1996 ford contour transmission range sensor


Transmission range sensor and neutral safety switch are the same thing (when you go to buy the part). It's at the top of your transmission. You'll see the shifting cable connected to it. Here are the instructions for adjustment:
Shift Control Linkage
The transmission shift linkage adjustments must be performed in the order in which they appear.

Column Shift

Place transaxle range selector lever in (D) (OVERDRIVE) position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS). A weight of 1.4 kg (3 lb) should be hung on the transaxle range selector lever to ensure the lever is located firmly on the (D) (OVERDRIVE) or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS) detent.

Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

Move transaxle manual control lever to OVERDRIVE position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS), second detent from most rearward position.

Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft). Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.

Floor Shift

Position transaxle range selector lever in DRIVE position against rearward stop. The floor transaxle range selector lever must be held in the rearward position using a constant force of 1.4 kg (3 lb) while linkage is being adjusted.

Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

Move transaxle manual control lever to DRIVE position, second detent from most rearward position.

Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft).

Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.



To take it off, it's a couple of retaining bolts and a wiring harness.

2000 Ford Contour Acceleration Probs between 40-55 mph


Transmission was initially misdiagnosed as being ok. The problem was the "range sensor", which showed up on the transmission shops diagnostic computer on a second look.

Replacement of the range sensor solved the problem. This was a $150.00 fix. Unfortunately a lot of other cash was spent because of the initial miss.
