    My friend has a 1996 Dodge Intrepid that will not shift out of second. No codes are present according to another friends reader. We replaced both the input and output speed sensors and the problem remains. Thanks for any help.

This sounds like a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) problem, have the code(s) retrieved from the powertain control module and see if that code comes up.

What might cause 2004 4l80e to be in limp mode no speedometer and stuck in 2nd gear


When the system goes into to Limp Home mode it means that a serious fault has occurred in the electronics or a mechanical failure has been sensed. What you need to do now is have the computer control system scanned for fault codes, this (the fault codes) will give you a starting point to diagnose the problem that has caused the Limp Home mode to be initiated by the computer control module.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M. Simultaneously, the Check Engine light came on, the speedometer stopped working, and the car doesn't shift out of 2nd gear. What's the likely problem?


these vehicles have alot of problems with the tcm( tranmission control module) internal failures of trans speed sensors. your car is currently in "limp in mode" to protect your trasmission!!!

1997 intrepid automatic transmission stuck in 2nd gear try to auto shift and it also stays in 2nd gear fluids are good but check engine light is on.


There are two speed sensors on the drivers side of this transmission. If your speedometer is working, replace the input sensor (closer to the front of the car). If the speedometer is not working, replace the output sensor(closer to the rear of the car). Or they cost less than 20 bucks, replace them both while you're underneath the car. They are dissimilar, so you cannot put the wrong one in the wrong place.

Chrysler 300 downshifted going down highway to 2nd gear.car now only has 2nd and reverse.When you put into drive selector goes directly to 2nd.trans makes no noise but will not shift.at the same time this...


it sounds like the transmission has gone into what they call limp in mode which indicates a problem with the transmission.you will have to have a scan tool put on it to pull the code out of the tcm(transmission control module) which will turn on the engine light.at the same time it may show a code for the temp control.

Speedometer quit on a 2000 intrepid. And it quit shifting gears at the same time


A common issue are the input and output speed sensors.When bad they cause the vehicle to go into limp mode keeping it in second gear and speedometer sometimes no longer works.

1996 gmc jimmy won`t shift from 1st to 2nd


IF the abs dash light is on and if the speedometer is sluggish or not working at all, it is probably a bad speed sensor on the transmission. and easy fix under $40 for the part. Mine was stuck in second gear for a while then worked then it stuck in first gear and i had the CHECK ENGINE light on.

Check the connection to the vehicle speed sensor. You can check the vehicle speed sensor by using a voltmeter set at millivolt. Then pass a metallic object close to it. The sensor should induce voltage as you pass the metallic object close to it. If not replace the vehicle speed sensor.
