We are having exact same problems (except window issue). Have you found a solution? Any leads would be much appreciated since all the mechanics seem to have no idea. Thank you!

My stearing power and radio sound go off while driving.


try shifting into neutral when this happens. If the radio and steering start working, the transmission range sensor needs to be replaced.

1997 Mercury Sable --Neutral Safety Switch ????


I also have a 1997 Mercury Sable, and had this exact same problem. And you're right, it is the neutral safety switch. If you do some research you'll see that Ford Motors seemed to slack when it came to these engine models, because the 1997 model of Ford Taurus has the same problem too. It's not a hard fix, it's located right on the transmission. You need to find out if it is an 8 or 11 pin switch, because the price varies. Just go to your local AutoZone and ask for some assistance. If you take it to a mechanic, they're going to keep trying different things and charge you a boat load of money. I hope I was helpful. :)

I just bought a 1994 Mercury Sable wagon. The steering wheel has alot of play. What is causing this and how would I fix it?


I can't see it from here, so you need to look over the steering components to find anything with excessive movement...best way is to have someone move the wheel back and forth while you watch the steering gear ends to see what's loose.

Powersteering, radio, windows


Transmission Range Sensor and Neutral Safety Switch are the same thing. As for the other question, I'm not sure what you're asking.

Powersteering, radio, windows won't work


Hello and thanks for using FixYa!, the problem with your sable is that the transmission range sensor needs to be replaced, back in 1996 and 1997, the circuitry internal to the sensor caused an interference with several other systems in the car, including the radio, power steering and power windows. Have the sensor replaced and it will need to be adjusted, so it is best done by a ford dealer who would have the proper alignment tool.
