SOURCE: transmission

You'll need to take the car down to a shop that is able to hook up to a scanner. The reason why it's in limp-in mode is that the trans. computer is detecting a problem.

SOURCE: 2002 chrysler town and country wont leave limp mode

try getting a new shift solenoid for it. i had the same problem on my 2002 chrysler town and country and my plymouth breeze which is also a dodge product. it is very simple to do and doesnt take all that long. the part will probably run you about 150 to 200 dollars but it should fix your problem.

SOURCE: 2002 Impala: transmission limp mode...

Most transmissions have a limp mode, or limp-home mode.
If the driveline computer thinks there is something wrong, it can lock the transmission into one gear, such as 2nd gear. Usually reverse will also be available. The Impala automatic has 4 speeds. 2nd speed or gear will get you home, but the engine rpms can get a little high. I wouldn't get on the expressway will in limp mode.
Before taking to the shop, you might want to try and reset limp mode by turning the car off for a couple minutes, or you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

4 cyl. Auto trans. in limp mode. takin the shift solenoid out to re build it i fnd ripped wires. My question may seem should i re connect the first or cont with the shift solenoi


Unfortunately, you should have gotten the diagnostic codes for the transmission before messing with the shift solenoid. Most of those dodge shift issues are caused by input and output speed sensors.

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)

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732


P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

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!

It wont go over 40 m.p.h. but the r.p.m. go to about 3000 and wont sfift into next gear


This transmission shift to 2nd gear if it detects a problem with the transmission. It may be major, but often it is only a sensor. Try turing the ignition switch on and off three times in a row, and then start it. This will reset the computer for the trans and you can see if it will shift again.

Take it to Auto zone or Advance and have them scan it. If you see a code for the input speed sensor or output speed sensor, they are both external and often have to be replaced. It will not hurt it to drive for a little ways, it was designed to be driven to repair. It is called limp mode.

Hope this helps.

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.

2000 Gran Prix, 180,000 miles, not shifting into overdrive, no slipping of transmission about 3400 rpm at 65mph, can you drive it in the 3rd gear ?


You can till you burn up the transmission. The car not going to 4th could be your in the limp mode, there is something wrong with the engine or transmission and the ECM has put the car in limp mode. If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have the car scanned for DTC codes causing your ECM to run under limp mode. Keep an eye on your transmission fluid, if it started to burn ( dark Burgundy color ) service the transmission and hope you did not burn too much of your clutch in your clutch pack. Keep me posted, and good luck be glad to help.

Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. It should be bright red like Strawberry colour. If it's dark like burgundy, then the fluid is burnt and the transmission needs to be serviced. Fluid and filter changed.
Have the Truck's computer scanned for any DTC codes. Most parts store like Auto Zone or Parts Source will scan for free. If there is a engine management Issues, it may be running your Yukon on a limp mode.
Limp mode will not let the transmission shift past 3rd gear and the OD does not engage, i had a cracked ignition cap and the computer put me on a limp mode once. 
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted to please.
