I would think that if you didn't have a noise coming out of the tranny you may have a computer or tranny solinoid problem.
Have you tried hooking it up to a scanner?

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear


the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

Tranmission wont shift


Gears inside welded together, or stuck in limp home mode. Is it stuck in a gear other than 1st or reverse? Limp home mode will select one gear, usually 2nd, when computer senses a problem with valve body pressure, or excessive heat. Either way it sounds like a trip to the ****** shop.

Own 2002 dodge caravan with 3.3 liter motor. The engine light is on and the tranny is now stuck in second gear.


That's called "Limp in Mode" Something in the transmission has failed. You may have lost 3rd gear, or reverse, or some other problem. The TCU (transmission control unit) has detected a fault, and has put the tranny in to 2nd gear. That way you can still drive it to the local dealer so they can repair it. Limp in mode keep you going so you don't have to have it towed. However, since it is only second gear, you won't want to drive very fast, probably no more than 30pmh, and you will want to get it checked out as soon as you can. Could be something as simple as a sensor failing or coming unplugged, or an internal failure with one of the bands, servoce, solenoids, or bands or clutch packs.

When you start it up and drive it the next time, pay close attention to how it shifts. Does it instantly put you into limp mode (First gear failure) or when it tries to shift into 3rd, and then put s you back into seond for limp more. this information will be important in getting an estimate. I appologize for any typpos here, as this form is not letting me see what I am typing.

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


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!

Car will not shift out of second gear. while driving it shifts fine to second gear from first gear but it stays in second gear the entire time driven


it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

Gear box for ed sedan


If the actual gear stick is hard to move you will find the linkages are stuck on something, if it moves freely and still doesnt change theres two things it could be, first is motor was incorrectly installed or second is the gearbox has gone into limp mode, limp mode is a factory set mode that keeps the car in 3rd gear for a 3 speed or 4th in a 4 speed, in the ba's i had this problem with my car, limp mode is only a safety measure to get you home and should be looked at immediatley.
