Strange, but had "Check Transmission" light appear while driving down highway. No codes, however, appeared in the computer after restarting it. The next day it acted like it was misfiring and the "Check Engine" light came on. It showed trouble code for number 8 cylinder misfiring. After changing the coil that attaches to the spark plug, it has run like a champion. I figured that the misfiring due to the bad coil caused the transmission to act funny, and hence, the "Check Transmission" light to pop up. Why it didn't show a code at first is anyone's guess.

Transmission model is AX4N.The reason that the car/trans only acts up after long drives is the heat.As metal components heat up,tolerances and clearances that were marginal or borderline before with moderate heat,become excessive clearances when really hot.More than likely there are internal transmission components with excessive wear.Many problematic areas inside the AX4N trans is the pump,where the oil pump driveshaft bearing wears out,the seal is torn,and hydraulic pressure falls off,common failure point in these units.The other areas are typical to all automatic transmissions,the clutch packs and bands wear and lose clearance.as well as some of the bushings inside the unit.I just rebuilt recently a trans exactly identical to your car,V8...4.6Ltr Lincoln,and it had minimal damage inside,but enough to throw the check engine light on with a Torque Convertor Clutch trouble code.The TCC was slipping excessively,and the vehicle computer recognized this,and illuminated the CEL.Chances are good that the damage inside your trans will be minimal,but now is the time to consider rebuilding it and restoring all the hydraulic circuits integrity,and resetting all the clutch pack and band clearances with new clutches,steels,and bands.A remanufactured torque convertor should also be installed along with rebuilding the trans.Be careful as to who does the work on the trans should you decide to rebuild it,as some people's definition of a rebuild doesn't quite qualify as anything more than a patch/repair job.A complete rebuild consists of tearing the trans completely down,loading it into a parts cleaner,and thoroughly cleaning it.From this point,the rebuild begins,including a banner overhaul kit,new steels,bands,seals,thrust washers as required,Electronic Pressure Control solenoid,all new bushings,set clutch pack clearances to factory specifications,along with setting unit endplay,and a remanufactured torque convertor.Good luck.

Make sure you have brake lights.This is were the shifter solenoid gets it's signal from to get it out of gear.
One thing you can try is turn the igntion switch towards the run postion stopping just short of activating the electronics.Then try and move shifter to neutral then you can start it and out it into gear so you can drive it to get it fixed.
