SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

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

SOURCE: limp mode on a automatic

Firstly, disconnect the battery and leave it for a few hours. Reconnect and try the car again. This resets the memory in the TCM. If the car picks up the faults again, it will go into limp mode again after a short while. If it's been a while since you changed the fluid, then put some seafoam transtune in to clean all the parts and plates. Then after a few days at least, preferably a week, go for a fluid and filter change. After this, you'll probably find it will go into limp mode again, just disconnect the battery again and reconnect after a few hours. I had the same problem in my chrysler T&C. I left seafoam in it for a week and it cleaned up all of the gum and varnish build up on the shift solenoid pack and plates.

If the problem persists, and after you find it allows you to change gears for a while and then goes into limp mode, it could be gummed up solenoid pack, or input speed sensor.

Go to o'reillys and plug in their diagnostic tool. It should provide you with the fault codes if any. If no codes, then your TCM and ECM are in good shape, and if you're lucky then it'll be something simple like a sensor, or solenoid. Try cleaning it first with seafoam transtune in the fluid for a week.

If all else fails, and their are fault codes, then take the car to a trusted transmission repair shop for a road test. The computer could be picking up slippage and making the car go into limp mode. This could be the clutch plates if no errors with the TCM, ECM are present, and you've ended up checking out the input speed sensor, and solenoid pack. The latter can cause hard shifting and slippage too, if the seed sensor is set to signal when to change gear, but the new oil, or old oil have made the friction slightly different to what it is used to or within factory limits. Firstly try reseting the TCM by disconnecting the battery for a while and see what happens.

Good luck

SOURCE: 1992 3000gt automatic stuck in limp mode,(3rd and rev.) HELP!

the car has the capablilites to give data and codes. You gunna need a professional if you dont have access to a scanner and multimeter. Otherwise were just guessing.
I hate telling people that its out of their hands but sometimes its best to let the pro diag it and then you can repair it if you capable

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)

The transmission appears to be stuck in "limp-in"


The Transmission Relay is in the Power Distribution Box. It's one of the 3 smaller identical relays underneath the row of 7 larger identical relays. It's the top one immediately below the larger relays. Between the Park Lamp(Larger Relay) & Fuel Pump (Smaller Relay).

Fuse #14 is also for the Transmission Relay.

My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode for the transmission. It is staying in second gear and will not shift higher. What could be the reason?


The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!

My 91 dodge stealth is in limp mode how do i fix this transmission problem


Your car is in "limp"mode because the computer doesn't know what speed your doing,So it doesn't shift,
There are three possible reasons for this,
#1= input sensor faulty on transmission,
#2=output sensor faulty on transmission,
#3=speed sensor faulty on transmission,
you need to have the transmission codes read to know which one,Autozone checks codes for free.

Nissan R34 CRASH BAR


when saying crash bar do you mean roll bar? or the front bumper support?

if roll bar, i believe it will fit with minor adjustments on the floorboard.

if the bumper support. i dont think so. the r34 has a slightly more square design on the front end and would not make for a good switch.

in theory if you can weld you can get anything to fit. good luck hope they put a skyline section up for ya...ya lucky bastard. youve got my dream car. have a nice day
