One of the most "popular" is the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS), formerly known as the neutral safety switch (NSS).

The TRS is known to fail and cause all sorts of very weird and unusual symptoms - kinda like gremlins infesting the electrical systems.

See "Related Questions" below for more about the TRS

Oh yeah, there's the TCC so, but you don't hear so much about that one...

Most likely you have a problem with the torque converter or the valve body in the transmission. If you have around 85,000-120,000 miles on your Sable/Taurus, this is a common issue. Having a transmission specialist look at the vehicle is an expensive but necessary pitfall.

What modules are utilized in Transmission Control for the 1996-1999 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable?

In the 1996-1999 Generation 3 Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable, there are several modules that are utilized in transmission control. The PCM, or "Powertrain Control Module" is responsible for all engine and transmission functions. This is the computer that manages all data to and from the engine and transmission. The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS, Range Module, NSS, Neutral Safety Switch, among other names), determines which gear the user has selected and tells the PCM what to do as a result. The VSS, or "Vehicle Speed Sensor" displays the speed on the speedometer but is also responsible for transmission performance. And on SHO model Tauruses, the ABS Wheel Sensors are instead used to display speedometer information, as well as control the transmissions shifting habits.
