Could Be that your TCM is losing power. I would check to see if the TCM is firmly attached to the passenger side fender wall. If not it could be losing the ground.

1996 Dodge stratus es automatic wont shift outta low gear .is this a sensor issue?


probably not if it is limp mode
the ECM puts the car in limp mode to prevent serious problems in the engine or transmission
could be no coolant, sump oil , transmission oil etc
run the fault codes and find the reason for the mode

On my 2006 Chrysler 300, the brake light, check engine light and other minor dash lights are on and the transmission won't shift out of 1st gear. Any idea what's going on?


If a car goes into limp mode, its likely something spectacular has gone wrong and the car is protecting itself from major damage. You will probably have to go to a Chrysler Dealer to rectify and get them to clear the fault off the cars computer.

05 chrysler pacifica 0700 warning code and shifting problems


This is classic limp in mode. The computer won't let it shift to prevent further damage to the transmission. Gas mileage will go down because you're stuck in low gear. P0700 is a pretty general code. You need to get it to a shop for a diagnosis

Transmission won't shift out of first


You likely have a bad transmission solenoid, which chrysler is famous for. the symptom is just as you describe, car/van/truck shifts down to and stays in first - to get you home in limp mode. Once it cools off a while it may run fine for an hour/day/week and the the problem returns.

Not a real expensive fix.

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

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

Gear box for ed sedan


If the actual gear stick is hard to move you will find the linkages are stuck on something, if it moves freely and still doesnt change theres two things it could be, first is motor was incorrectly installed or second is the gearbox has gone into limp mode, limp mode is a factory set mode that keeps the car in 3rd gear for a 3 speed or 4th in a 4 speed, in the ba's i had this problem with my car, limp mode is only a safety measure to get you home and should be looked at immediatley.
