Don't know but same exact problem, 2000 F-150 automatic, started after transmission lowered to replace worn out (automatic-style) flywheel which no longer engages starter. Shade tree mechanic says he hooked back up the one wire harness to transmission when he finished; but this sounds like an electrical problem. Reverse works; but car starts, cruises, and stops constantly in 2nd gear; and Overdrive indicator on shift stick flashing yellow; not the case b4 this repair...

SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

most newer vehicles  have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad!  I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem!    when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first    good luck

I have a 96 gmc Sonoma stuck in 2nd gear how do I fix it.tried to remove the gear box but its stuck


Usually, stuck on 2nd gear is a safety mode(limp in) used in modern vehicles. Have your vehicle transmission scanned for trouble codes and fix whatever caused the trouble code to set( if any). Or worse case scenario your transmission may need overhauling. Have your transmission checked by a qualified, honest tech. since the wrong call can cost you thousands of unneeded repairs.

Automatic not changing gears


check the shifter mechanism for binding up and not moving freely into positions. Not starting in park but in neutral indicates something is out of alignment with the shifter. May just need cleaning and a bit of oil/grease to fix.

Chevy cavalier gear shifter


if it is s manual box remove the gear lever tower from the top of the box and see what damage was done to the bottom of lever and/or lever pivot pin in the tower. Remember normal gear boxes require a gentle shift to allow the syncro rings to work properly and if you want to do racing changes get yourself a specially built box.

2000 ford explorer 5r55E stuck in second gear and all gear positions


It sounds like the linkages have let go. If this is the case, then drive it to a repairer straight away. If you turn the vehicle off you might not get it started again.

Gears working if used manually but will not kickdown automatically


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732


P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

Regards

1996 f150 4x4 e4od automatic stuck in 2nd or limp mode while in 2wheel drive or 4wheel high,when i put it in 4wheel low the transmission shifts in all gears. At fist I was told the transmission was bad,so...


Wow,
That's odd ,push button shift I suppose . Ford doesn't have a 2nd gear limp mode ,I don't think.
Has to be the manual linkage at the shifter,try manually shifting? still no low?

In 2008 first 4th gear and later 2nd and 4th gears kept jumping out. I was told that all the bearings and other components inside the gearbox were worn out so Ihad them overhaul the gearbox. A few months...


a gear box place should know more than me but this can also be caused bye a little ball bearing and spring .... these 2 things push on the selecter shafts and fit in to a groove that holds the shaft in the right spot .. that is what u feel when u change gear and it stays in position ....... the spring - springs can looz tention .. brake or the ball can wear or the groov it sits in to can do the same making it not hold in position ... 2nd and 4th are prob on the same shaft and this problem useully happens under load or taking off quick ........ i think they call them retainer springs and ball

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!
