It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

You can take it to an autozone or other place to get free obd scans done. I think you have an issue with the wiring harness. THe codes are all related to the transmission not being able to shift or talk to the shift solenoids. IF this is a new transmission the issue is not the transmission. Check the wiring to the transmission and the TCM. Look for bad ground connections etc.

We have a 2000 Ford Windstar that was in getting the transmission fixed. Since working on the transmission, the car won't start. We gave them both keys and they said they needed to get new keys from...

I am assuming that the vehicle ran prior to getting the transmission repaired. If so you should not need any new keys and the computer should be good. The shop doing the work has obviously done something wrong. If it did not run prior to taking it in for the tranny then it could be many things. Hard to tell without seeing the vehicle. If it was running prior to the work and it's still in their hands I would suggest you get it away from them ASAP.

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.

The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.

Transmission shifts in and out and speedometer goes up and down in a 1998 Chevrolet pickup with an 4L60E transmission.

Do you mean that the trani is slipping? If so you may be low on trani fluid, may have a clogged trani filter or need a rebuild or new one.
If you mean something else then let me know.

Terrano 2 reverse good, drive bad. auto

have you checked the transmission fluid level? if thats good, then its slipping. it may be beyond repair or you may be lucky and only need it adjusted. either way. DO NOT and i mean DO NOT EVER add any of the transmission additives to your cars transmission fluid. i did that to a car i have and the stuff ruined the seals in the trans, and had to pay 1700 to have it rebuilt. i asked them about that stuff and they said it ruins the rubber seals inside. the specific stuff i used was riselone or something with a name like that. also try not to rev it to high to get it into gear, cause if it is something simple, the high revs can cause alot of damage if its not damaged already. or at least try not to drive it to much until you can get it fixed. i hope this helps you

1991 toyota camry automatic. Transmission is fine

sounds like you may not even have a 4th gear. worst thing is you may need a new transmission. try putting in some "Lucas Transmission Fix" it's like $12 at Autozone.. If that doesn't help, take it to a transmission shop and have them check inside your transmission to see if you need a new transmission or if it's something that could be fixed. It may even be a sensor.

Having it scanned for codes now, may catch something before it's too late. Only other thing I might try is disconnecting battery for a few minutes, then re-attach, and try then.
