Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Problem only involves the normal drive mode (the one closest to neutral). I have to actually shift the car into neutral then back to drive to get it moving again. But, this procedure only works if I'm fully stopped. If I'm even slightly moving, it's a **** shoot as to whether it will engage or not. I do notice that it doesn't do it as often after the car is driven for a while and gets the engine to temp. The transmission fluid level is dead on. I sure hope it's something simple.

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral safety switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The park/neutral safety switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to de-energize. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the contacts in the neutral safety switch open and the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized.
