My wife was driving my 2008 passion for two all day. Then stopped for groceries on the way home. When she came out the car wouldn't start and three horizontal lines were in the display. Any ideas on what this is? I checked the battery, and the ignition fuse and both were fine. I also disconnected the battery for ten minutes to try and re-set the computer but no luck.

I had this same issue on my 08 cabriolet and it ended up being the "crank shaft position sensor"

i dont think its the actual transmission that's having the issue, on mine the car would "crank" but not turn over... and the3 lines of death were also being displayed. reteaching the transmission did nothing.
