There is a switch on your dash or console called "second gear start" for winter driving. You have turned it on.

When shift indicator light blinks off transmission miss shifts


The light indicates a fault has occurred in the transmission or the electronic control sensors and actuators. You need the dealer to scan the transmission control module (TCM) to see what fault code is stored and then based on that code perform diagnostics and repair the transmission.

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear


the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

2003 Chevy Avalanche won't start (incorrect gear indicator)


PRNDL Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display blanks if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
• The IPC receives a class 2 message indicating the park position and the column park switch indicates a position other than park, open input.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Could be the transmission range sensor . Testing would need to be done , hooking up a scan tool ! Doing electrical testing etc...

Hold warning light,what means?


Press the button on the dashboard "A/T Mode" changeover switch, which switches the driving mode between Normal and Hold. From the Owner's Manual: "Select the "HOLD" mode when starting your vehicle on a road surface slippery from snow or the like, and the vehicle will start smoothly...other than "L" position, the vehicle starts in second gear." BTW, red brake light is probably the emergency brake light switch, which might just need cleaning or adjustment

03' 1500 Ram Vam will not start or display in "P"


Either the linkage is not properly adjusted or the neutral safety switch either is also out of adjustment or has failed. Switch location varies from vehicle to vehicle so you will need to look for yours.

2001 tahoe will not shift from second gear


this is known as "limp mode"

there should be a fuse in the dashboard fuse panel, or possibly the one under the hood.. one will be labeled trans or tcm - something of the like...test ALL fuses in the fuse boxes for good measure, and change the fuses if you find any blown.

ALSO....

Did you recently have a remote start system installed? If so, they need to hook up the smaller white wire in the ignition harness to turn on with the ignition power from the remote start unit. If the ignition wire and the white wire (transmission control) are not powered at the same time, the trans will go into limp mode.
