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.

Mechanics advised that gearbox needs replace after diagnostic Of codes . Dash light still on after codes being read , have had ecu replaced 2yrs ago ? What do you think it could be , thanks phil

didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently

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.

Own 2002 dodge caravan with 3.3 liter motor. The engine light is on and the tranny is now stuck in second gear.

That's called "Limp in Mode" Something in the transmission has failed. You may have lost 3rd gear, or reverse, or some other problem. The TCU (transmission control unit) has detected a fault, and has put the tranny in to 2nd gear. That way you can still drive it to the local dealer so they can repair it. Limp in mode keep you going so you don't have to have it towed. However, since it is only second gear, you won't want to drive very fast, probably no more than 30pmh, and you will want to get it checked out as soon as you can. Could be something as simple as a sensor failing or coming unplugged, or an internal failure with one of the bands, servoce, solenoids, or bands or clutch packs.

When you start it up and drive it the next time, pay close attention to how it shifts. Does it instantly put you into limp mode (First gear failure) or when it tries to shift into 3rd, and then put s you back into seond for limp more. this information will be important in getting an estimate. I appologize for any typpos here, as this form is not letting me see what I am typing.

2001 dodge ram1500 /accelerates slow even w/peddle to the floor

How many miles on that rig? The 4.7 motor is a great motor.

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Might also be a trans issue. Does the trans seem to be shifting properly?? Could it be starting in 2nd gear which is the "limp mode" for Chrysler trannies?

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.
