HELP!!! Ford Explorer 2003 Transmission issue
Hi all, have a serious problem. The 2003 Explorer completed a 1300km trip to Fraser Island here in Australia without missing a beat. Hit the sand...all good. Hit an inland track....drove approx 11km's, hit some very light corrugations and the transmission disengaged. Just no response at all.
Stopped, restarted vehicle and it worked fine for another 3 kms until I hit another set of small corrugations then the same thing happened. This time it wouldnt engage again. Engine check light was on. Everything reading normal.
The Scanguage I have attached to the vehicle recorded fault code, P9206 from memory.
Vehicle is now at Ford at Gympie....100kms from where I am staying, and it is apparently running fine again, but they did not locate or fix the problem. My concern is that the vehicle will be returned but the same issue will reoccur unless the problem is rectified.
Basically, there is no response in any gear when selected. When you try to put it in park there is a grinding noise which suggests the torque converter is still spinning.
I suspect it is electrical, but what controls this and what needs to be replaced to fix it?
Any help is much appreciated. I know there is a help section that you can pay for help on but couldnt locate it.
