try checking the wiring to your relay box sounds like you either have a full grid of bad relays or a loose wire to the main relay panel i checked most the codes and they are all for the sensors and relays which is tied into the main fuse box. so check for corroded wiring under your hood fuse panel and busted wires. and if there is nothing wrong there try checking the computer for corroded portions as well since the computer could be making it do that as well. disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes to let hte computer wipe it self because if it had not been ever done all the stored codes could be showing still even if you fixed them before. it may also fix the computer if thats the issue if not then you have anouther big issue ill provide a link to check the codes if you need that http://www.troublecodes.net/obd2/pcodes/

Well I found a burnt fuse, but it keeps blowing it after about 5 mins of driving. So I'm going to start checking wires.

glad i could help ^.^

My father's 2003 Taurus out the blue threw 15 codes everything from torque converter to transaxle to oxygen sensors. The Culprit was actually a wiring harness that had become fried underneath the car. The reason it got fried was because the motor mounts were bad which caused the engine to drop some and pinched the wires near the mount. So new mounts and new wiring.. Problem 100 percent solved.

Anyone with the same 10 to 15 codes should look for that wiring causing that short. You do not need to throw tons of money out on a transmission. It is a short circuit problem.
