ASE mechanic. the trans won't shift if in limp mode. starts off in third and remains in third until problem is addressed. a computer scanner should show problem.

Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

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.

Tranmission wont shift


Gears inside welded together, or stuck in limp home mode. Is it stuck in a gear other than 1st or reverse? Limp home mode will select one gear, usually 2nd, when computer senses a problem with valve body pressure, or excessive heat. Either way it sounds like a trip to the ****** shop.

It sounds like your Yukon is running on the limp mode. On the limp mode, the truck will not go pass third gear. it could be as simple as tune up such as getting a miss fire will cause your Yukon to go in the limp mode.
Not sure if your Yukon is still running OBD1 system, that year was the change over year. Here is a link if it is a ODB1 system for you go retrieve the DTC codes. http://www.troublecodes.net/GM/ If your Yukon is on the OBD2 system, then your going to have to get it scanned. I believe Auto Zone can scan it for you free of charge.
Good luck and hope this helps you out, Oh and Auto Zone has the step by step instruction to the repairs need to be done to your Yukon.

Your going to have to get the Jimmy scaned before youhurt the transmission, It sounds like it's on a Limp mode which can range from a tune up to a bad ground. Good luck.
