Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Hubby was driving to work and all the sudden the car wouldn't move. It was still on, no sounds came with the fact that it didn't move, so we have no idea what's wrong with the tranny :(
We had the same problem and I found this post somewhere on the net and it worked! We pulled the sensor off today and are looking for a new one but it does run fine without it for now.

Bought my wife a 99 Ford Taurus at auction. Like others the Transmission sensor gave out. A temporary quick fix is to open the hood, and simply pull off the sensor connector plug on top of the transmission. The transmission will now operate properly in both OD and drive. You will notice your rpm's are steady as your speed goes up - loss of fuel economy due to the failed sensor ( to technical to explain here...). Two things to do: Change out the old transmission fluid immediately - its gonna require synthetic fluid at a higher price, but is worth it as it shifts far better now. And change out the coolant. In fact, I suggest changing out ALL of the fluids and start clean. Until you get the sensor replaced your fuel economy will **** for a while, but its better than not having wheels at all and it IS safe to drive.
