Your transmission probably has some severe problems. If a sensor in the tranny has gone bad and is keeping it in first gear, it won't be able to do anything, not even crank.

Tailgate on a 01' Ford Windstar LX is rattling.


From your description, I believe your tailgate is not latching when you close it. Slamming it shut instead of simply closing it should solve your problem

What does the low traffic light mean in a 1998 chevy cavalier?


If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.

What does trac off light refer to? service engine and trac off light comes on.


Trac is the control that doesnt let your tires spin when they are not making contact with the road. Just by having your emergency brake on will light up the trac light. It also come on with your abs. If you driving on a slick road and you jam on your brakes and the tires slide a little mine will say low track on my car.
