Actually, it's the neutral safety switch. Easy fix. Go to a mechanic and tell them you need to replace your neutral safety switch, and they can handle it from there. but you need to get it fixed because i have the same make and model, and mine started to go out in drive too. no fun.

What causes lose power to power windows and radio and power steering when car is put in reverse


Most generally it is a bad transmission range sensor ( I know it sounds crazy and unrelated) but it's true! My 97 GL did the exact same thing. If you have some basic mechanical skills it is a pretty straight forward repair. Good Luck!

My stereo says 'muted' and does not work except when in reverse


They have a speed dependent volume so it does have wheel speed sensor input which could cause the wierd reverse only operation. It sounds like a software problem-I would try version coding the head unit(which will have to be done if you have a c.d. player or telephone in the car. Try to unmute it from the steering wheel buttons it may think there is a phone in the car and is muting the radio for phone operation. Your best bet is to pull codes and version code with a s.d.s. machine or at least a hand held tester but the majority of after market scan tools will not communicate with the d2b system which is your radio or sound system. good luck I hope I have been helpful

2005 equinox the intermittant power steering issue


The power steering is on this vehicle is electronically assisted. Meaning it does not have a power steering pump. The electric motor could be going out, pulling too much current at times, and tripping the breaker. The best thing to do is take it to the dealer, and have them inspect it.

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.
