You might need to replace the valve body clip with the upgraded (stronger) one. Ford had problems for a while with the clip breaking and not allowing the tranny to shift into O/D. I had the no O/D problem, I replaced the clip with the upgraded (stronger) one which fixed the problem.

fix with this kit
Sonnax 96206-07K AX4N 4F50N Transmission forward control valve, Transmissionpartsusa.com

Below are the DTC codes if it has any. ISSUE
No 4th gear operation (no 3-4 shift) and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0734 and/or P0761 or 648 may occur on some vehicles.

SOURCE: 96 mustang overdrive lights flashing

have someone scan it for transmission codes. Most likely it is your Torque Converter that is going out, but it could be a solenoid, What color was your fluid?

SOURCE: 2000 windstar airbag light is on on dash and horn

Hi Mamaberta7,
The OD light flashing is something you need to have checked using a scanner. Since this trans. was recently rebuilt,you want to get it checked soon. The transmission can default to full line pressure and this can cause damage. Also if the unit isn't locking up, it can cause the transmission to overheat.
The airbag light on and the horn not working are probably tied into the clock-spring. This is the most common concern with the symptom you have. Again,you can have the code pulled to confirm the problem or you can use a DVOM (Digital volt/ohm meter) and check for continuity through the clock-spring. If you want to check it yourself,let me know and I will get you the steps to down the system and the wiring diagram.
If you have any other questions,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

1999 jeep grand cherokee overdrive does not work


OD , id OD'd? LOL !!!!
huh?

please do explain, dont work.
it never engages
or hunts.
or lamp flashes (some early cars , flash it for failure)

The PCM on most 99 cars controls the engine and tranny all in one box. and can do many things, wrong, to cause OD to fail
even Limphome, mode. (btw tranny has its own limp mode too)
why not scan the PCM and pull out the DTCs for tranny
P07xx or?
that be first.

the PCM will in fact skip OD (top gear) if it thinks it will overload
the engine or tranny is malfing. (slipping and other checks)
the newer the car , the more of that protection is going on....
saving car from driver actions.

96 ford tuarus that has AX4N transmission wont shift out of first gear, how many shift solenoids are in this transmission and how hard are they to change


You may want to change the vehicle speed sensor first. Is your speedometer working? The shift solenoids are inside the side cover of the transmission and it's quite a job to get that cover off, you practically have to take the trans out of the car. Are you getting a "check engine" light there may be a code in the computer that will tell you what is going on. If one of those solenoids fail it should trigger a "check engine" light, the solenoids are usually pretty trouble free as a rule. I'm not sure on that transmission, but I think there are two shift solenoids, but there is also a "torque converter clutch solenoid". Also, if you can get it to a trany shop they can put a scan tool on your car and tell you exactly what's happening. Have you tried manually shifting the car? Pull it down into 1 then manually shift it up, see if it will shift that way.
