SOURCE: transmission shifts hard down from highway gear only (D>3rd)

I had the same thing! It was a computer issue. It only cost me about $35.00.

replace the input speed sensor to transmission and the wiring pigtail all are available at your chrysler dealer take your vehicle registration in to the parts counter so they have your vin # to get the right part and it is the front of trans by fluid linres to radiator.

Have someone scan the transmission for bad shift sensors.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge durago transmission will not shift into 2nd gear

It may be the torque converter clutch circuit. Do you have a check engine light on?

I was told to change my Transmission Control Module,located on the transmission . You can get it new for under $200 but, I was advised to get it from a junk yard it's alot cheaper and its easier. I hope this helps

1996 Dodge stratus es automatic wont shift outta low gear .is this a sensor issue?


probably not if it is limp mode
the ECM puts the car in limp mode to prevent serious problems in the engine or transmission
could be no coolant, sump oil , transmission oil etc
run the fault codes and find the reason for the mode

Chrysler 300 downshifted going down highway to 2nd gear.car now only has 2nd and reverse.When you put into drive selector goes directly to 2nd.trans makes no noise but will not shift.at the same time this...


it sounds like the transmission has gone into what they call limp in mode which indicates a problem with the transmission.you will have to have a scan tool put on it to pull the code out of the tcm(transmission control module) which will turn on the engine light.at the same time it may show a code for the temp control.

Transmission doesnot want to shift out of second gear.


Sounds like the transmission has put itself into "limp-in" mode which the transmission controller is programmed to do when some part/wire goes bad such that if the unit was allowed to shift it would damage itself unnecessarily. It is designed to keep you moving in 2nd gear only so as to get to where it can be corrected.
First check the transmission linkage and make sure it is actually clicking into gears. If not, it may need to be re-adjusted. Next, your transmission may be in "limp home mode" (which I mentioned above) which is popular with those transmissions. There are 2 speed sensors in your transmission, an input and an output. These tell the transmission what speed the engine is running and tells the transmission when to shift. They run about $17 each (depending where you buy 'em). Make sure to pick up a deep dish socket to fit them as well. Other than that, you may have more serious problems and you should take it to a shop. Hope this helps!

1996 gmc jimmy will not shift to 3rd gear


Hi, It may be in LIMP mode.

What is "limp-home mode" ? This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

Common failures on 4L60E, symptom any possible repair:

Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under-hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter :ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Trans seems noisy when moving in 1st and Reverse, noise goes away instantly if you shift to N or the trans goes into 3rd gear: Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R sooner rather than later.

3rd gear starts, can manually shift through all gears. When car has been turned off for a bit, then back on it will run normally.: VSS dropoff w/ Hi-stall converter. The rpms are too high, but VSS is showing no movement. Happens after a tire burning take-off. Doesn't store a code, will not throw a CEL (I've heard that it will store a code if it happens 3 or more times). Cure: Reprogram PCM for VSS dropoff -- PCMforLess knows about it.

If you can get the Jimmy for no more then $500.00 and the engine sounds good and body is good, you may want to invest in the repair of the jimmy. Also note that to have a close look at the fuel line along the frame on the drivers side just by the back doors, the line is know to corroded there on all the SUV's

4L 60E - 2001 k1500 will not shift into 3-4. Oil is not burn't and stifts great into1-2


  • No 3rd or 4th gear: “3-4” clutches are worn out. R&R. The car is safe to drive (in 2) until you can get it fixed.
  • Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.
  • No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : Shift A solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.
Check to see if your transmission is in the limp mode, which would only give you 2nd, 3rd and reverse gears. No 1st or 4th gear.

My transmission will not shift outta third gear..it will go in reverse but will nt go into normal shifting


This is Dodge's limp mode. It means there is a problem with the transmission. Take it to a shop with a scan tool. They can plug in and clear the codes and find the problem.

2002 Dodge Caravan with approx. 66,000 miles, check engine light came on, seemed to have stayed in 2nd gear. Could it be a pac solenoid transmission problem?


You need to find someone who can pull the codes from the transmission and see what kind of trans fault it is. If there is a fault in the trans the controller will put it into limp in mode which is 2nd gear locked. Won't shift out of 2nd...You need to pull the codes and see if it is internal in the trans or an external sensor-Good Luck

My 1995 Dodge Stratus


your ultradrive transmission is dead.

you will need a new transmission. such a sudden failure is common with ultradrive transmissions.

you should have 3rd and reverse. its called limp home mode. its the death rattle of the ultradrive transmission.

98 dodge avenger transmission problem


codes will verify if it needs to be pulled out. More than likely it will as the electronics are rarely the problem. The computer senses a indifference in the ratio between the sensors so it locks it in limp mode - 2nd gear.

My 99 dodge stratus shift to 2 and stays until i turn key off and on i can manual shift into 1 2 3 until i actually move in forward. if unhooked the battery already it didn't work any anserwer.


One or both of the speed sensors on transmission are bad. One is an input sensor, the other is the output sensor. If either one of these shows an open circuit (which they do when they go bad), then the transmission goes into Limp-Home mode and stays in 2nd gear. Those sensors are cheap enough where you should just go ahead and change both of them.
