Question about 1996 Chrysler LHS

96 chrysler LHS "limp mode"

My car is stuck in limp mode and i know it needs some work. I had a diagnostic done at advance auto parts and no codes came back for the test. If it was a computer problem or something like the cylanoid pack, would that have showed up on the diagnostic test? My question is, do I have any other alternatives besides getting the transmission rebuilt for 1400$

    I had the inp/out changed already. i had a diagnostic test done on it at adv auto parts and no codes came back. so would that mean its not the solenoid pack?

OK here is the bad news....yes you propably do need the solenoid pack replaced in the trans,BUT....you can try replacing the input and output sensors on the trans they are about $16.00 each at the dealer,I dont recommend aftermarket sensors.they are pretty easy to get to dont forget to clear the pcm after the repairs.good luck have a good day DB

    as a last resort you could take it to a trans shop to get an exact diagnosis,some will diagnose for no cost but either way get prepared for a rebuild.I had one of theese cars and loved it but the trans failed at 60k,I tried everything possible but no luck.thanks for the comment DB

What can I change to get my 99 Chrysler lhs out of limp mode,TCM?in and out speed sensors? And what else if anything?


Have your ecu scanned for DTCs. I've had more than a few Chrysler ECUs go bad. They even have a special code for a defective computer. They're definitely designed to be worked on by Chrysler dealers.

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)

96 chrysler town country wont shift into third gear


If it starts out in 2nd gear & dosn't shift, it is probably in a limp in mode. the system will need to be diagnosed & computer satisfied. sometimes disconnecting the battery will reset the computer & allow the trans to shift untill it sees the problem again. I recomend getting the codes read first so the memory will not be erased.

Chrysler voyger 1997 auto the gear gets stuck in 3rd what can it be


Your transmission is controlled electronically. There are solenoids in the transmission to control the shift from one speed to the other. The onboard diagnostics will detect the fault and store a trouble code which can be retrieved with a scanner. You can take your car to any large auto parts retail store and they will scan your computer for free. Just be sure to write down the codes for reference. If you can let me know what the codes are, I can research them and tell you what they mean. It most likely is the 3-4 shift solenoid, but at this pint, that is just an educated guess.

Car wont shift from 2nd gear and speedometer doesnt work. diagnostic code p0700. what does this mean?


the PO700 code is a generic transmission code. You would need access to a proper scan tool to check for transmission codes. However if you speedo isnt working, it sounds as though you have a bad output speed sensor. This part runs about 60.00 from the dealer, and is fairly easy to install. No speed signal will put the transmission into limp mode, and keep it stuck in 2nd gear.

IF IT WAS A FUEL FILTER IT WOULD ACT LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME. GO TO AUTO ZONE OR ADVANCED PART STORE AND THEY WILL SCAN IT FOR FREE.BECAUSE IT COULD BE A EGR VALVE STICKING OR A THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR OR A {A.I.S MOTOR].

It sounds like it is in limp mode. This is to protect further damage to transmission. You need to take it to a trans shop for diagnostic
