You can't do anything Only the best techs can diagnose that It is a communication area network (CAN) problem Problems in the high speed wiring Ford has 3 different protocls & transmission speeds all in one vehicle
If you are talking about the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) , it relays to the ECM (Electronic Control Module) what the vehicle speed is so that it can manage fuel mixture and transmission shift points as well as ignition timing. On some vehicles it also is used for the ABS system and for the cruise control and to make speedometer readings.
from the sounds of it ?? could be the altenator ,a diode is allowing the current to run to earth,disconnect battery when not using the vehicle ,if it starts ok after having the battery disconnected then make sure a boot (trunk) light isnt staying or something stupid like the abs pump or suspension leveling`pump if fitted .But the altenator is the most common problem
It sounds like the transmission needs service and adjustment. Typically you depress teh clutch and start the vehicle then try to shift into reverse. Try starting the vehicle, let the clutch out, then depress the clutch and attempt to put the vehicle in reverse. If it still will not engage reverse then you definately need transmission service and adjustment. There are several causes for this and they all require inernal repair of the transmission.
Try this relearn procedure hopefully it will help Vehicles equipped with engine or transmission computers may require a relearn procedure after the vehicle battery is disconnected. Many vehicle computers memorize and store vehicle operation patterns for optimum driveability and performance. When the vehicle battery is disconnected, this memory is lost. The computer will use default data until new data from each key start is stored. As the computer memorizes vehicle operation for each new key start, driveability is restored. Vehicle computers may memorize vehicles operation patterns for 40 or more key starts. Customers often complain of driveability problems during the relearn stage because the vehicle acts differently then before being serviced. Depending on the type of vehicle and how it is equipped, the following complaints (driveability problems) may exist:
Harsh Or Poor Shift Quality Rough Or Unstable Idle Hesitation Or Stumble Rich Or Lean Running Poor Fuel Mileage
These symptoms and complaints should disappear after a number of drive cycles have been memorized. To reduce the possibility of complaints, after any service which requires battery power to be disconnected, vehicle should be road tested.
Ensure all components are connected. Ensure transmission fluid level is correct. Warm engine to normal operating temperature. If vehicle has been repaired, perform KOEO and Continuous Memory Code Self-Test and ensure fault codes are not present.
Computer Relearn Procedures
Idle Relearn Procedure
Place automatic transmission in Park or manual transmission in Neutral position. Ensure the emergency brake has been set and all accessories are turned off. Start engine and bring to normal operating temperature. Allow manual transmission vehicle to idle in Neutral for one minute. Allow automatic transmission to idle in Neutral for one minute and then to idle in Drive for one minute. Once initial relearn is complete, process will be completed during normal driving. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.
Drive Cycle Test (AOD-E, AXOD & AXOD-E TRANSAXLES)
With transmission gear selector in Overdrive, moderately accelerate vehicle to 50 MPH for a minimum of 15 seconds. Transmission should be in 4th gear. While holding speed steady, lightly apply and release brake for about 5 seconds. Stop and park vehicle for a minimum of 20 seconds with transmission gear selector in Drive. Repeat procedure 5 times. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.
Drive Cycle Test (E4OD)
With transmission gear selector in Drive, press Overdrive Cancel Switch (LED should light). Moderately accelerate vehicle to 40 MPH for a minimum of 15 seconds (30 seconds above 4000-ft. elevation) Transmission should be in 3rd gear. While holding speed steady, press Overdrive Cancel Switch (LED should go off) and accelerate from 40 MPH to 50 MPH. Transmission should shift from 3rd gear to 4th gear. Hold speed steady for 15 seconds. While holding speed steady, lightly apply and release brakes enough to turn brake lights on. Maintain 50 MPH for about 5 seconds. Stop vehicle for a minimum of 20 seconds with transmission gear selector in Drive. Repeat procedure 5 times. Always complete the procedure before returning the vehicle to the customer.
