2002 mercury sable problem!

RE: 2002 mercury sable problem!
The question now is, “Why” are a couple of fuses blown? Did you hook something up wrong? Or; as Rupe asked earlier, is a wire pinched somewhere? Either one is very common on a big project. If you replace the fuses and they just blow again then you will have to start looking for the problem. Please let us know what you find.

Well possible wires are ripped actually when droping transmission the harness got snaged but first replace all blown and untestable fuses.

Ok so I have checked the wires and none of them are ripped I pulled on the wires one by one and none of them gave away. So really I don't know why the transmission won't shift. So is there a fuse that could be weakened and not be blown but won't work?

RE: 2002 mercury sable problem!
I need some answers to the questions that we are asking to be able to even get I idea of what we are looking for. In Post #9, Rupe asked for the results of the alternator test. We still don’t know what they were? In post #11, I asked why the fuses were blown. We still don’t know which fuses they were or why they may have blown? In post #7, I asked about the ground wires. Did you double check them? Everything electrical depends on a good ground. This means that the cable attached to the ground post of the battery must be clean and tight. The other end of that cable must be clean and tight. All of the body grounds that break out of the harness must be clean and tight. Since I can’t actually inspect these things myself I have to depend on you to be doing this and I need to hear what you found along the way.

In short, No, fuses don’t get weak. They are good or blown.

Pulling on the wires doesn’t tell you if they are pinched or shorted. I have seen several jobs where the wire harness got pinched between the bell housing and engine block, the coating crushed off, and the wires were shorted. I have seen the harness routed wrong, laying against the exhaust, the coating melted off, and shorted out. So you have to actually follow the wires and inspect them for damage.

At this point I would suggest a full system scan. Have all of the systems scanned with a Full Function Scanner, record all of the code NUMBERS & post them here for review, then have the computer cleared. This could point us in the right direction saving time and money.

Please fill in some of the blanks for us and hopefully we can figure this out.

Ok so alternator and battery are good they passed the reason they seemed bad was the master fuse was blown. The key fob, windows, radio, and the fuses on my amp was popped. The reason they popped was I put the battery in backwards. The grounds are solid. The wires on the wiring harness are fine. They are all fine and they are fully intact.

Now I have gotten all that I just need one piece of infor so I can move on the the next possiblity, on my mercury I have the AX4S transmission. Ok so I just need to know, Where is the shift interlock solenoid located, the bottom or side pan?

RE: 2002 mercury sable problem!
First of all I’ll tell you that I worked in a transmission shop for several years. I worked on AXOD’s, AXODE’s, AX4N’s, & AX4X’s along with almost every other breed & model of transmission there is. I could be forgetting something, but I don’t have a clue of what a “Shift Interlock” solenoid is? There should be 5 solenoids located inside the side cover. The 1-2 shift, 2-3 shift, 3-4 shift, TCC, & EPC. There is also a Turbine Speed Sensor, & Output Speed Sensor in other locations. A full functions scanner can detect problems with all of these. That's why I had suggested a Scan and posting the code numbers here.

I don’t know if that information helps because I don’t know what you are looking for or why? If that's not what you needed, let us know and we can try again.

RE: 2002 mercury sable problem!
I suspect the shift interlock solenoid he's talking about is what keeps you from shifting out of park unless you step on the brake. I'm not a Ford expert but experience tells me it's in the console of the shifter is between the seats and on the steering column if that's where the shifter is. I also hear rumor there's a connection for it on the brake light switch so a bad brake light switch can cause issues.

RE: 2002 mercury sable problem!
OK. If that's what you think you should do, I really don't know how to help you then? You may stumble on the solution or you may make things worse? I personally feel that; even if you had to pay for it, a complete scan would be cheaper in the long run. It's usually way more expensive to stumble around in the dark, throwing parts at the problem hoping that you accidentally find the right thing than doing a proper diagnostic and fixing the problem the first time. With a proper scan & diagnostic you would probably be done by now? But I wish you the best of luck. Please let us know what you find and/or check in for more help if you don't find the problem.

I found out what was wrong. I was replacing electrical stuff in the transmission and the PVC valves and things inside there was all messed up from when I had the flywheel broke so figured it all out. So to anyone who is reading this if your transmission isn't working after the flywheel breaks, take the side pan off the transmission and look for broken pieces and then you have two choices talk to a professional on what all to replace or get it fixed by a professional or replace the transmission completely.
