SOURCE: limp mode on a automatic

Firstly, disconnect the battery and leave it for a few hours. Reconnect and try the car again. This resets the memory in the TCM. If the car picks up the faults again, it will go into limp mode again after a short while. If it's been a while since you changed the fluid, then put some seafoam transtune in to clean all the parts and plates. Then after a few days at least, preferably a week, go for a fluid and filter change. After this, you'll probably find it will go into limp mode again, just disconnect the battery again and reconnect after a few hours. I had the same problem in my chrysler T&C. I left seafoam in it for a week and it cleaned up all of the gum and varnish build up on the shift solenoid pack and plates.

If the problem persists, and after you find it allows you to change gears for a while and then goes into limp mode, it could be gummed up solenoid pack, or input speed sensor.

Go to o'reillys and plug in their diagnostic tool. It should provide you with the fault codes if any. If no codes, then your TCM and ECM are in good shape, and if you're lucky then it'll be something simple like a sensor, or solenoid. Try cleaning it first with seafoam transtune in the fluid for a week.

If all else fails, and their are fault codes, then take the car to a trusted transmission repair shop for a road test. The computer could be picking up slippage and making the car go into limp mode. This could be the clutch plates if no errors with the TCM, ECM are present, and you've ended up checking out the input speed sensor, and solenoid pack. The latter can cause hard shifting and slippage too, if the seed sensor is set to signal when to change gear, but the new oil, or old oil have made the friction slightly different to what it is used to or within factory limits. Firstly try reseting the TCM by disconnecting the battery for a while and see what happens.

Good luck

Transmission may be low on transmission fluid or the transmission fluid pump failed. If it's electrical, you can still get it in to gear, but would not shift gears. Good luck and keep me posted, check transmission fluid level and have the transmission line pressure tested. Before that check all your fuses.

Where is the transmission relay at on a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES?


The transmission does not have a fuse, only a power-up relay located in the under hood fuse panel, near the front of the panel.

If there is a problem with this relay, your transmission will reduce to fail safe mode only. Fail safe is the mechanical-only control which leaves you with Park, Reverse and 3rd gear only, provided there are no internal failures.

What exactly is the problem you are having?

The first thing you need to do is have the transmission control module scanned for fault codes.

I have a 2000 Eclipse and the tyranny is going into Limp Mode or Safe Mode. When I take off from a stop it shifts into 3rd gear and will not up shift or down shift. A Mitsubishi dealer in Greenwood.In told...


A Tyranny? I do believe you mean a transmission. It would seem more like the transmission has lost its link to the ECU. First of all, check all connections to the transmission. Then, to the computer. Failing that, the computer may have to be replaced.

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!

2002 Impala: transmission limp mode...


Most transmissions have a limp mode, or limp-home mode.
If the driveline computer thinks there is something wrong, it can lock the transmission into one gear, such as 2nd gear. Usually reverse will also be available. The Impala automatic has 4 speeds. 2nd speed or gear will get you home, but the engine rpms can get a little high. I wouldn't get on the expressway will in limp mode.
Before taking to the shop, you might want to try and reset limp mode by turning the car off for a couple minutes, or you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

Replaced trans, now car is stuck in limp in mode


MCARTER859: check the connections where the transmission harness and engine room harness come together. Unplug them and reconnect them I have run into more than one case with the same symptoms as yours which ended up being nothing more than poor connections.
