Yes it does have a microchip did they replace it with the right key switch and try unplugging the negative battery cable for about a minute to reset the computer

Will a 98 transmission from a Ford Explorer XLT fit in a 97 Ford Explorer XLT?


No, which kind of surprised me!! Depending on the engine and drivetrain, some 1996 transmissions will work.

Loss reverse gear in 98' Explorer XLT


Most repair shops will only do a complete rebuild. Reason is, they have a guarantee attached, and corporate policy dictates they cannot repair a partial problem. There is some merit to their logic, as in...most transmission (automatic) problems have a source...which may quickly disable or break another band or drive servo if there is no complete rebuild.

As for price, parts alone would only run $50-75, for standard reverse band...labor would still be full price...because they will still charge for removal and installation, and have to remove several other servos and bands to get to the reverse band.
