1994 Chrysler Concorde - In Limp Mode

This is the 3rd tranny I've had to put in this car. Only 80,000 miles on the car. Started "bucking" and intermittently going into limp mode. Took it to a national chain tranny repair shop (perhaps a mistake). They said they did a "scan" and got an error 47. Last night they said they were going to pressure test today, but when I called they said can't get it to go into limp mode again, so they can't complete the diagnosis. Am I being hoodwinked? Should I have taken it to a dealer? What will happen if I drive the car in limp mode? Is there anything I can do to correct the problem? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I had the same problem with my 94 Concord. After reading the Factory repair manual I took the car to a close friends transmission shop. He up dated some of the parts with Heavy duty parts. Its been fine with 35,000 more miles on it.

1994 chrysler concorde cuts off fuel and spark while driving

It's very possible you have a bad ignition switch. My '96 LXi had the same problem, plus it tended to randomly drop into "Limp Mode" at any speed.

After replacing the ignition switch (3 years ago) neither of those problems has resurfaced.

It will be driving fine than after a wile it will drop into limp home mode but after i turn off the car and turn it back on it stops

It is designed to do that if you have a transmission problem. Get someone to put a scanner on it to check for transmission codes.

Car will not shift out of second gear. while driving it shifts fine to second gear from first gear but it stays in second gear the entire time driven

it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

I would have the high and low shift sensors replaced first. If it continues to not shift it is staying in limp mode and you need to take it to trans shop to have diagnostic

94 Chrysler Concorde Tranny Problems

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

Chrysler concorde doesn't shift out of first

It sounds like it is in limp mode, this means that there is a transmission problem. The trans will go into limp mode to protect from further damage. You need to take it to a trans shop to have diagnostic test

Transmission woes.

What's happening is the trans. computer is detecting something wrong. It puts itself into "limp in" mode. Most of the time a sensor is acting up. Go and have you computer (trans.) scanned so you know which sensor is going bad. This is a very common occurrance with all chrysler products. Don't go to Autozone for the scan. Your best bet is to go to a transmission shop.
