Disconnecting the wires won't do it. A signal needs to be sent to the transmission to shift out of 4th gear. I would take it to a good transmission shop. I do think there is a chance that there is a wiring problem in your steering column.

Check fuse #27 it will need to be replaced. Very cheap just YouTube how to change a fuse. They are very common on them.
