TRS (Transmission Range Sensor)
Symptoms (Each bullet point is a symptom that doesn't necessarily happen at the same time):
i had a friends car do this and he left it go long enough that it wouldnt even shift out of first.
- Loss of power steering assist, all window controls (none are lit up), rear window defrost controls, half of the MFS controls (only Hi, Lo, and turn signals work), and radio only when car is in R, (D), D, and 1. Everything functions fine when put into P or N.
- Transmission randomly downshifts/upshifts suddenly while driving.
but at least the taurus trs gives you warnings before it really stops working. it was wierd cause radio on except when the car was in a moving gear. that was the first symptom to show up
