There is a colision sensor under the hood. i take it the air bag idiot lite is staying on. the only way to resolve this issue is to have the control module replaced. in some models if the air bag is disabled so is the vehicle.. another govt. safety feature, as you might assume..

How difficult is it to replace pin within steering column that controls the gear shaft in a 98 Ford Taurus?

You should not attempt this fix unless you have been a mechanic long enough to have someone hands on to teach you. You have to disconnect the air bag. Remove the steering wheel. There is a cover over the steering column that contains the wiring for the turn signals. That complex bunch of wires and switches has to be removed. After removing the flange that covers the shaft and removing the shift lever. the pin will be exposed. I have many years of mechanical work and would take it to a shop that specializes in Ford products. One of the best reference sources to find someone who can do the work is a used car dealer.

How do you disable air bag on 95 crown victoria


CAUTION The air bag system must be disarmed before performing service around air bag components or wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Position the vehicle with the front wheels in a straight ahead position.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Disconnect the positive battery cable.
  4. Wait at least one minute for the air bag back-up power supply to drain before continuing.
    1. Remove the air bag module retaining bolts. Detach the electrical connector and remove the module.
    2. Attach air bag simulator tool 105-00010 or equivalent, to the vehicle harness connector.

  5. Connect the positive, then the negative battery cables.
