Tore apart the tail shaft and put in the gearing and clutches from a junker at pick n pull.
Still no go on the awd over 2nd.
I don't like the auto, it's my daily for work, and I'm just make it paycheck to paycheck with a bit of pocket change left over, so I don't have a lot of resources. But I have a knowledgable friend with some tools and equipment at hand.
Any help appreciated.

Yeah i am driving it still just in FWD, and it does ok.
Also no the pan wasn't dented, and i took it off and replaced the internal filter and checked out the little sensor in there as well and it still actuates.

Check engine light on?
AT oil light flash at start up?
AT fluid level ok and condition to horrible?

The AT temp light is probably flashing @ startup - or not. Regardless, Pull the codes using the handshake posted on here/online.
Report back, and we'll go from there.

Just got done flushing the tranny and it's good on fluid. I keep checking.
No check engine light.
Abs light though.
Don't know any history of the car but the previous owner said he bought it from the original owner who took care of it
Supposedly water pump and timing belt at 100k

When does it flash? With the FWD fuse installed, or not installed?
When driving or when idling?
The more info you can post the more we can help.
Doubtful the ABS light being on would cause the limp home mode. But how long has the ABS light been on?
Also, does the check engine light actually illuminate when you first turn the key on?
If you can get your hands on a scan tool, try pulling codes from the ECM. Even if the light isn't on, a code might be stored that can help us narrow this down.

When I come up to a stop light, AT temp light comes on some/most time and is solid, occasionally it'll go to flashing and it doesn't stop until I turn off/on the engine.
I haven't noticed a pattern in the flashing except a constant quick flashing.
I'll check back tomorrow after work with the codes

Either that or its illuminated to say there's a fault in the tcm system.
Not sure if the light can come on for any reason besides an overheating issue while driving.
So. At this point. Try pulling codes from the ecm. And also, try getting codes from the tcm. I bet there's on in there as stored. You can find how to pull codes from the tcm somewhere on this website. Not sire where though.
And report back with ecm and tcm codes!
