Good afternoon, I hope you are doing well. My name is***** am a Ford master technician and I would be happy to assist you with this.

If the transmission detected the low fluid state it will have went into safe mode and locked out the ignition to prevent further damage. When this happens the Transmission control module will set a fault code in the Engine control module, and will not allow it to restart until the codes have been cleared and the transmission sees the proper fluid level/pressure.

It will be easiest to clear the codes and reset using a scan tool, but if you do not have a scan tool available you can undo the battery terminals for 10mins to perform a master reset
