Question about Cars & Trucks
Its in limp mode have tried computer not that and all fuses r ok
Some Vehicles have a seperate Electronic Control Unit for the gearbox. If there is a problem with the ECU or any electrical component inside the gearbox, i.e. pressure sensors or transducers the ECU will sence a fault which will limit the gearbox to either 2nd or 3rd gear assuming that the vehicle has an electronic gearbox. for this you will have to scan the OBD port with a scan tool... if it is an older vehicle, the gearbox will possibly work entirely off of pressure, in which case there might be a faulty seal or hose in the gearbox its self. Best to get it checked out by a licensed mechanic. This is not the kind of job you can do without the correct tools or knowlege

most newer vehicles have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad! I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem! when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first good luck

Since you have rebuilt the transmission it is suggested to replace the speed sensor,this is the cause that your car is stuck in limp mode.
Let us know if you want to know somethin more else accept the suggestion.

SOURCE: transmission fault code
The automatic transmissions of today's cars are electonically controlled by the ECM, when a problem arises the transmission will send a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) to your ECM. You will need to take your car to a mechanic to test and replace the Reverse Solenoid in your transmission, the pan will have to be pulled off to do that.

Testimonial: "- i need to remove the pan anyway to replace its gasket so fear it I do not, is it stupid difficult to replace this reverse solenoid or any special tools needed? Btw thanx a million anyway your the first hopeful and useful 411 source ive found so far and im SOOO sick of looking! I know I can do it if I have the right instructions please help we cant afford much since my nasty motorcycle accident that almost killed me"
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!
