My 1999 grand am is in limp in mode the speedometer stopped working???


Limp mode: I had this problem, and the solution I found was to remove the bottom pan of the automatic transmission and replace 2 "shifting switches".
I did it myself, as the GM dealer wanted about $1,000 to do this.
Each was held in with 2 screws, and each had a wire pigtail attached to it.
I paid $ 38 each for the two switches, which were the size of an egg, sort of.
Speedometer: Could be the "sending unit" for the speedometer, attached to the transmission.
Did you have a problem with the wires under your car to cause these both to fail at once?
God bless your efforts.

Where is the speed sensor located on Dodge Ram 2000?


Chrysler products have a limp mode that will not shift past second gear when the computer senses a transmission problem. A failed speedometer will do it.

My 2001 dodge startus transmission wont shift, speedometer works, engine light is on. Need help?


Transmission is in limp mode. This enables you to drive the car to service. Anytime there is a transmission code in the computer even if nothing is wrong it will stay in limp mode until the code is erased. Most retail auto parts stores will run an obd2 diagnostic scan to determine the problem and erase existing codes, no charge (Auto Zone, Advance and others)

it may be going into limp mode if the computer sees a problem,usally the speedometer isn't working or the output sensor is faulty,if it is in limp mode,turning the key off then back on will reset the computer

Car won"t shift from second to third gear


Yes your car is in limp mode, but it's not necessarily an expensive problem.

The problem is usually caused by either a failed input speed sensor (35.00 retail) or output speed sensor (about $50.00 retail). If your speedometer isn't working it's the output speed sensor.

Either one takes just a few minutes to change but of course you'll get charged for an hour's labor. Good luck.

NO GAUGES & WON'T SHIFT TRANSMISSION


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

Car in "limp mode" after accident


The speedo sensor tells the car when to shift, sort of. The connector/associated wires/or the sensor itself may be out of whack. Repair or replacement of this part should correct it.
