That’s what I’m going to do I just don’t understand why someone would have disconnected them, it doesn’t make any sense? And the transmissions I found, the only one I’d pay for is from a 99 crown Victoria civilian, my car is a 2002 civilian lx model, will it still be plugg and play, direct bolt on?No. The ABS on YOUR vehicle in particular does NOT have anything to do with the transmission operation as I stated in another related post.
Your ABS and Traction control are part of the braking system. If you have a braking emergency; you are more likely to lose control of your vehicle. Fix the ABS and the transmission.
Yes; transmission problems are usually mechanical problems unless your Check Engine Light / Malfunction indicator lamp is Transmission related. If you don't have a P700-P799 code it's not related.
Providing the actual Code(s) you are telling us about would help. It's impossible to give you advice without critical information like this.
