    any solutions ? please help if anyone knows the fix for this one. We understand that the car is stuck in a limp mode but do not know whether its a shifter mode issue or a computer issue as the cvt doesn't have a tcm, Thanks !

My 2007 Range Rover will shift out of drive while braking or just driving. if i hold the handle in drive or select sport mode there is no problem.

I would be looking at an adjustment problem or a stuck dedent ball ( in the shift lever base)that is causing the problem

05 mini cooper S went into limp home mode, warrning lights blinking, shut off and re-started. Stopped for a bit then back into limp home ? what might be causing this

Look in the owners manual

There is usually only a couple choices
when you go into Fail Safe

ETC Fail Safe -- for ignition problems,to protect the converter
Overheating Fail Safe
Transmission Limp Mode or Overheat

Just examples

Check for codes as ALWAYS WITH ALL
VEHICLE PROBLEMS first thing you do,
don't need to ask any questions

It wont turn from sports mode

I would try disconnecting the battery for about 15min. and then reconnect to see if normal driving mode returns. Did this problem start after engaging sport mode? if so, you may have a faulty button that needs replacing.

Sounds like an transmission control module problem I have seen this and often times just replaced the trans mission control module and found everything working properly again.
