There are two sensors that are notorious for failing.
But you'd have a box that stays locked in safe mode generally...
Look for little plugs atop the gearbox that has wires running to 'em
Check these connections as the plastic becomes brittle, and easily gets loose if working nearby...
The manual box has that drop in rotary oil level/switch sensor/indicator.
I did a post about the speed sensors for an auto box a while back.

Rebuilds after years of using as a 4WD substitute...
