Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
Is the transmission range sensor the same thing as the neutral safety swith, if so this was replaced, and the problem persists. not as bad as previously. is there another solution to losing all three in reverse.
Electric ignition switch is the solution to this problem :)

1997 Mercury Sable
After starting and shifting the auto trans into drive the Radio goes off immediately.
After 15 to 20 minutes of driving there is a clicking from what appears to be a relay near the the steering column or in the vicinity of the drivers "kick-panel".
The power windows fail, the control console for the windows quits illuminating, Power steering works on an intermittent basis, Also the rear defrost switch on the dash panel will not engage or function.
Otherwise the car runs exceptionally well!
The engine never quits (Which I have been expecting any moment).
The RPM Gage stays at the correct level with proper idling.
I am thinking the "Neutral Safety Switch".
(How difficult and how do you replace this part?
I am somewhat mechanically inclined, but prefer some input before I do anything).
If any mechanic agrees or has suggestions thanks in advance for your help!

Transmission Range Sensor and Neutral Safety Switch are the same thing. As for the other question, I'm not sure what you're asking.
