SOURCE: 2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Light on all the time

Hello, my engine light was on for a VERY LONG time and everytime I got it checked no one could tell me what the problem was because things always checked out fine. The "code" says its a loose gas cap or something, but it wasnt that. My 300M also was having A HARD TIME STARTING UP for about 8 months and leaking coolant for about a month. I finally found a mechanic who knew what he was doing; 1. Leaking Radiator 2. Coolant found in #2 or #3 cylinder. The cause of this was a busted HEAD GASKET. If your 300M has trouble starting and the Engine light stays on have a mechanic check your engine for a busted head gasket and see if all your cylinders are firing correctly. I had to pay $2600 for a new Head Gasket, Radiator and all new hoses plus labor. CRYING!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2001 300M 130K - very well kept. Stuff happens...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Chrysler

Many times on Chrysler products, one or both of the speed sensors screwed into the front of the transmission will fail, and cause the tcm to go to limp mode. Also make sure you have power to the tcm. Someone with a scanner can check these for you, or the speed sensors are less than 20 bucks each, replace them both and cross your fingers. If the transmission has internal problems, the tcm will sense this and go into limp-mode as well.

The 700 is the limp mode, as I recall. One or both of the sensors are failing, and they are not too expensive to replace. Once replaced, then using the OBD tool, you can delete the fault codes and then be able to shift into all the gears.
I have written about this solution in other blogged questions, and so have others. Under the car, on the Driver side of the transmission are two electric sensors. They lay horizontally on the trans just behind where your foot would go on the accelerator and under the floorboard. The electricl clip sockets pull out with thumb pressure on each socket. DO NOT pull on the wires EVER. Unplug each socket, and replace one at a time. Use a 1" deep well socket and unscrew them from the side of the trans casing. Do one at a time starting with the one on the left, the Input side,; Then the output side.
The reason why I replace them both is that they are cheap- about $20 apiece- and REALLY: do you want to go under there twice for twenty bucks? If so, then just replace the one on the LEFT- the Input sensor. You then MUST RESET THE CODES with the OBD tool for the transmission side of the tool, then GO!

SOURCE: 04 Chrysler 300m goes into limp mode only when the A/C is on? i get P0700 and P1776 codes

P0700 is a general fault code for the transmission. P1776 is a fault code for the low/reverse solenoid inside the transmission. Since your problem is only present while the A/C is on, it is most likely electrical. Check your battery charge and your alternator performance FIRST, as either of these can cause this problem. Check the wiring to the solenoid, which is located at the front of the transmission. Finally, change the transmission control relay located inside the power distribution box ("fuse box") under the hood.

I just replaced the transmission control module in my 2001 Chrysler voyager and now it seems to shift sometimes and sometimes it seems to be stuck back in limp mode?????????????

Whenever you service an electronic transmission gearbox you need reset the memory soon after and before using it you go to the transmission mode then erase all errors

Where is tcm on 2000 chrysler 300m

It's not the TCM. It's the solenoid pack in the transmission. Common fail. Part, fluid and filter will run about $350. Plenty of Utube videos on how to swap them. About 3 hours work.

I have a 2000 Chrysler 300 M, I had a whining sound first off when I cranked up in the morning so I took to the shop and they said it was my racket pinon steering that needed replaced also my sway links...

It sounds like your transmission is stuck in "limp in" mode. That is when there is a shifting problem detected in the diognosic modual, it switches to this mode to get you off the highway and to a service station.. Chrysler dealers have a OBDII tester that they connect to the plug under your steering column to capture the problem code, or even reset the transmission shift moddual.

Limp home mode

Recommend you consult with your local certified transmission mechanic. They will have code readers that can talk to the transmission and not just the general codes.

If possible remove the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan is typically an indication of mechanical failure such as clutches, meaning a rebuild.

If it comes to a rebuild, have yours rebuilt versus a swap out. This way you'll know everything bolts up correctly and you have all the brackets, etc.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M. Simultaneously, the Check Engine light came on, the speedometer stopped working, and the car doesn't shift out of 2nd gear. What's the likely problem?

these vehicles have alot of problems with the tcm( tranmission control module) internal failures of trans speed sensors. your car is currently in "limp in mode" to protect your trasmission!!!

2002 chrysler 300m limp mode

you need to be sure that auto trans fluid is in good shape and you need to be sure that it is not missing even little amounts. replace the filter too.

then you need dealer to reset transmission computer for you. if it still happens

if these wont cure you must be sure that selenoids inside transmission are in specs(check on factory service manual for resistance values of each coil).

and be sure that there are no loose electrical connections on transmissions especially a loose ground.

if it shift correctly there may not be a need of overhauling

2000 300m shifts into 2nd gear and locks out all other gears. (limp mode) Changed speed odometer sensor, and have pulled #11 fuse, Checked wiring. battery cables removed for re~set. What else can be...

you replaced the output speed sensor, try replacing the input speed sensor, sometimes called the turbine speed sensor, thats where the computer gets the info to shift.

2002 Chrysler 300m transmission goes into "Limp-mode"

2002 has a known solenoid problem. The solenoid pack must be a new type. They have dates printed on them. make sure it has a date after 2003.
