Question about 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Had cruise control on at 70 mhp, heard loud thud and noticed immediately engine over revving, turnd off cruise control limped it into a gas station, parked checked under car and hood no fluids or anything out of the ordinary. Got back in, no reverse, finally got it pushed back enough to go forward and fond that there is no 1st gear, only 2nd, no 3rd, no overdrive, limped it home. What could be the problem?
No reverse and only second,You have a internal mechanical transmission failure,This had nothing to do with you using cruise control,The transmission was ready to fail

THERE IS A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN FOR P1776..SOLENOID SWITCH VALVE LATCHED IN THE LOW/REVERSE POSITION..YOU NEED TO HAVE SCANNED AGAIN AND HAVE "EVENT DATA" READ..
LOOKING FOR TRS CODE..IF IT READS TR2,YOU NED TO HAVE TRANS SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CHECKED AND FOR BINDING AS WELL..IF IT READS OD,VALVE BODY OF TRANS MAY HAVE A STICKING SOLENOID SWITCH VALVE IN VALVE BODY..ALSO IF TRS CODE LEADS YOU TO VALVE BODY ISSUE..YOU NEED TO HAVE SOLENOID PACK BUILD DATE CODE CHECKED..IF IT FALLS IN A CERTAIN DATE,YOU REPLACE THE SOLENOID PACK,NOT THE VALVE BODY..A GOOD TRANS SHOP OR CHRYSLER DEALER WILL BE ABLE TO DIAGNOSE THIS PROBLEM..ALSO TCM IS PART OF PCM ON THIS YEAR VEHICLE AND YOU CANNOT SWAP ONE FROM ANOTHER VEHICLE..BUT I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE A CONTROLLER ISSUE..THE LH VEHICLES I HAVE SEEN WITH THIS PROBLEM THE SOLENOID PACK ON TOP OF THE VALVE BODY IS THE TROUBLE..I WORK AS A CHRYSLER TECH..13 YEARS EXPERIENCE

For the steering problem first at all check it the fluid level.
For the Transmission, if you recently replaced the fluid this MUST BE a ATF+3. Never use others like Dexron or Mercon. So, first, let me know what kind of fluid you put on in.

It sounds like the module is in limp mode. The speed sensor is most likely the cause, but it can be some other things as well. A scan will give a code stating the problem area.
The speed sensors are on the side of the trasmission that faces the front of the vehicle. There are 2 of them, and they are the same sensor. One is an input speed sensor located closest to the engine, the other is the output speed sensor.
