Manual or Auto?
Ditto /\

I'm guessing it's an auto. in which case, I can't help you because i know very little. but if it's a manual it's probably a synchronizer.

Edit...Mods you might wanna edit the name of the thread itself...he missed the F..

haha

It's even censored in the title after you open the thread.

"Sounds" like the MLP (ELECTRONIC GEAR RANGE SELECTOR)Thats the small box on top of the tranny close to the radiator.Unplug it and see if there is corrosion in the plug.If there is ,clean the contacts and try again.If not,most likely your gonna have to have your tranny diagnosed.When this unit starts crapping out,It sees a different gear than what you really are in(ie:Your shifter is in low but the sensor is reading o/d.)It confuses everything and one the results could be your problem.Now don't go changing any parts without confirming.It could also be a bad ground or Ignition switch.But start by looking at the plug.Hope this helps.
