Hello, when you turn the wipers on do you hear the wiper motor run and the wipers just dont move? Reverse gear is good and you have no froward gears at all, not even in low gear? Trans fluid level is full and doesnt smell burnt/black?

Does the trans fluid smell burnt or look black or is it full and red? Have you inspected the fuses in the underhood fuse panel and interior fuse panel?

its not burnt and theres no smell its full checked the fuses inside the car and their all good buddy checked the underhood fuses and said their good too
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, I was reviewing the circuits and fuses and didnt see a common fuse or relay for both the wipers and the transmission. The windshield wiper motor itself may have snow impacted around the linkage and would need to be removed to make sue it isnt frozen up due to snow/ice buildup. As for the transmission a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool needs to be done to see what codes are stored. A shift solenoid fault can cause a lack of trans upshifting and since the fluid doesnt smell burnt I would suspect an electronic system fault such as this.Once you know what code(s) are stored for the trans you will have a better idea what to check/inspect.
