So much for doing a good thing...

Well I finally got around to putting my color match grill and 2003 head lights on my truck. After I was all done and happy with the out come I go to back out of my drive and put in gear.... Nothing. Put in drive... Nothing. Put in low and guess what?... Nothing. So I checked fluid and every thing looked good. Shut truck off and started her back up and everything was fine. Drove to the car wash and stopped at a red light same thing happens no gears shut truck off and it worked fine... Wth? Should I try changing fluids or is it a waste of my time?

there is no reason for a trans issue after just disconnecting headlights and removing the grille unless you managed to kink a line running to the trans cooler somehow, even then I highly doubt you would have this same issue

Sounds like possibly the gear shift indicator on side of the tranny.

Transmission Range Sensor. Drivers side of the tranny. The sensor is behind the manual lever.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it shot yesterday I was looking at it more and it's slipped really bad out of first and when in gear or park I could hear the tranny making noises like the cliches were spinning and rattling around. 3k for a heavy duty rebuild with stallion 13" tc and bts valve body from my mechanic
