The transmission is getting too hot,and or it needs a fluid change,also,the transmission case could have a internal leak,it sounds as though there is a hydraulic leak inside the transmission,heat always makes it worse.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Check your fluid levels first, and if its getting over 1/2 on your gauge you have cooling problems, check fluid levels, your transmission lines run through a part of the radiator in order to cool them, so you need to resolve the cooling problems

you are correct as a single blade connection is mostly the temp gauge sender as the gauge grounds out through the variable resistance in the sender unit
most coolant temp sensor units have 4 wires in a square shaped plug and are generally in the same vicinity
I am at loss as to any transmission problems coming from a coolant sensor problem as the purpose of that unit is to report the engine coolant temp so that the ECM can adjust the air/fuel mix, turn on the radiator fans
There may be an transmission temp sensor to report to the ECM when the transmission overheats and that would put on the engine light
It appears that the recurring problem has again surfaced
but check harness connections for corroded pins , water ingress, and check the transmission control module for connections and operation
you may also check the vacuum actuator and hose for leaks and correct operation as that unit will attempt to change ratios as the throttle setting alters

Bought a camper top for my 2005 Ford F150 PU. trying to find wiring diagram to hook up third brake lite


The after market CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) is in the wire harness bundle on the driver's side frame rail, under the plastic cover. Some have found it easier to get to it in the driver's side kick panel. When you pull up the driver's side door sill, pull the carpet back, and you will find the grommet for getting into the cab of the truck

Here is the page from the EVTM for the Stop / Turn lamps that shows the after market CHMSL connection

Sounds like you either have a short in the wires in the drivers side window switch, or the window switch itself needs to be replaced. Note that not just the 1 switch needs to be replaced but the whole switch module.

This is essentially correct. A common problem with earlier models of Eurovans is the wiring through the door boot. Check this first as the wires tend to become brittle and break. This can save you alot of hassle in getting the door panel off and inspecting the motor mechanism. A good sign is if when you press the window switch you hear a little "click" in the right front of the dash. That is the window relay engaging. Power is getting to that point in the circuit but can't make it back through to the door.
