You want a good laugh? You can check the diagnosis on anything wrong with the engine/transmissions on these cars, but there aren't any diagnosis readouts for a bad computer. But, a computer failure is very, very, very, rare. Take your car to a tune-up shop for starters.

Why won't a 1989 Ford Aerostar pull when in drive?

will it not pull at all or just not well?? Could be low on transmission fluid if its having trouble moving when in drive.... I know i have seen it happen on a 95' ford aerostar, not an 89 though... If it doesn't move at all, perhaps shift linkage is not putting transmission into gear. check under van to inspect linkage.
