Just keep pushing from under the hood, you do know it comes out from the glove box, right?

How do I replace the shift control pack in transmission of 2001 ford Taurus SES?

Not sure what you mean. This may help. This is on the firewall, above the engine near the top center. Remember; for successful replacement, the same calibration code on the PCM must be used! PCM does control Trans but there are many sensors that feed this processor. Do you have a better description?

Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Removal and Installation
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  1. Remove the powertrain control module (PCM) electrical connector.

  1. Remove the PCM.
    • Remove the stud bolts.
    • Remove the cover and the PCM.

Where is the PCM on a 95 GMC suburban 2500 454 w/AT and 4wd

The ECM or PCM is usually behind the glove box mounted to the firewall.
Did you check the fuses for the ECM ? Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key switch on ?

Where the computer box located and how do it look

The PCM in a Grand Am is located behind the glove box. You do not need to remove the entire glove box, just the door. Remove the glove box by opening the door any emptying its contents. Squeeze together the outside part of the glove box that becomes visible while open. Squeezing it will release the clip from its fastener, and the glove box will slip right off.

Unhook the connection module that runs from the PCM to the vehicle. Depress the outer clips and pull to release the connection module (It is a six or eight pin white connector).

Use the socket wrench or screwdriver (depending on the vehicle year) to remove the PCM from its mounting. There should be six bolts or screws. Keep the bolts or screws in a safe location because you will need them to install the new PCM.

Check in this site (Technical Support tag) has PCM for about $150. If you do replace the PCM, you will need to take it somewhere to do a crank sensor relearn routine.

Hope this helps.

How do you replac blower motor resistor on 2005 ford taurus

It is under the glove box. Take off the big black cover below the glove box by removing the two plastic tabs (tough to get out, used a screw driver to pull out slightly and then stuck needle nose pliers underneath to remove the remainder). The Resistor is in the back left corner within the duct. 2 screws and the resistor pulls out.

Where is the heater blower in a 1988 ford taurus

Where is the blower motor? how do i get to the blower motor for fan.

I expect that you checked the fuse first.
If you have to remove the motor, it's located behind the glove box.
Glove box removal will provide you more space to work.
You will see the motor having the size of a soup can attached on a mounting plate. Disconnect wiring, remove the screws and turn the motor assembly to remove. Note its position because you'll have to put it back the same way.
Once removed, test the motor with a 12 volts power source. If it runs watch the starting swing effect.
If the motor is good then test/replace the resistor block it's probably bad.
The vehicule being old, by the same time it's a good idea to check for any water leak that could drop on these two parts when mounted.
Hope it will help
