Stalling in reverse often means the reverse clutch is leaking pressure causing the line pressure to drop and the converter clutch engage uncommanded.

Lets see if the radio will not come on in park from a power issue. In park running are fuses 11 and 42 powered?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

just found out if i pull fuse 27 after the truck is started it will go into gear and run fine but i do not have blinkers without the fuse. radio also works when i pull the five amp radio start fuse.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Fuse 27 disables power to the TR sensor on the transmission. This sensor tells the PCM what gear you have selected. Do you have a scan tool so we can monitor this sensors readings through each gear? A faulty TR sensor should of resulted in the OD cancel light flashing and codes stored, did you have that issue?

The radio start fuse is only supposed to shut the radio off briefly while starting to prevent an electrical feedback through the radio speakers while starting. When putting the vehicle into gear while already running, is this effecting the power on fuse 32?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I haven't had any codes run on the truck because up till today did i realize that I could move the truck by pulling fuse 27. I have installed a new TR switch, so I am assuming it should be working properly. It is one of the first things I did other than checking and changing batteries and cables. Unless you are thinking there is a short or ground issue with it.
I was kind of thinking the radio and truck not going into reverse were linked some how but I am definitely not a mechanic or expert.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

It is for sure an electrical issue, we just need to figure how its connected.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
