In limp mode cant get out 96 dodge avenger ES V6

Well the problem is i think it's stuck in limp mode though whent he problem first happened i could floor it and it would shift up to fourth and once the speedometer went back down to 45 or 40 it's would immediately down shift into "limp" mode i'm assuming. Now the problem arose right after i replaced the car battery so i assumed it was electrical. I took it down to autozone had it scanned for codes, and it didnt throw any codes whatsoever.Now I cant get it to shift up at all and am permanantley stuck driving in limp gear. Please help

Change your speedometer sensors, one might be bad, but change both to be sure, then reset computer. To get transmission out of safe mode. Check and be sure your transmission fluid is ok while car is running and on flat ground. If low be sure to use right fluid, wrong fluid can cost you a transmission

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear


the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

Transmission stuck in one gear


You don't say what kind of car it is but you likely have a bad shift solenoid which will need to be replaced. The car shifts down to limp mode so you can drive it slowly, Once it cools off, things reset, for awhile and then will act up at odd times.

Limp home mode


Recommend you consult with your local certified transmission mechanic. They will have code readers that can talk to the transmission and not just the general codes.

If possible remove the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan is typically an indication of mechanical failure such as clutches, meaning a rebuild.

If it comes to a rebuild, have yours rebuilt versus a swap out. This way you'll know everything bolts up correctly and you have all the brackets, etc.

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?
