Replaced trans, now car is stuck in limp in mode

I have a 03 eclipse gts sypder and when i bought it, it had transmission problems which i was aware of so I finally got a new transission last week and decided to put it in over the weekend. I thought everything went great until I strated driving it and it suddenly **** and went into limp-in mode stuck in 3rd gear. Everytime i restart it, its fine for about 10-20 seconds then jerks, then right back to limp in mode. We hooked it up and read the codes, came up 43,42, and 44: incorrect gear ratio for 2nd,3rd and 4th. I have read it may be speed sensors but its a brand new transmission. Someone else suggested that the transmission computer had to be reprogramed? Any idea's?

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.

If the transmission was swapped with some other box then you may have to take the car to an accredited transmission shop to have all the sensors and connections fixed .

04 ram will not shift past 35 mph


it may not be a transmission problem. have you checked for fault codes to make sure it is not in limp mode? limp mode keeps vehicle from accelerating properly because the ECM has put the system at a limited setting to keep the engine running but not to its full potential.
