Chrysler limp mode

I have a 2008 Chrysler T&C. After a short trip, stopping and then restarting the car it goes into limp home mode (most times). Gear box specialist says no faults show up but the temp sensor is reading -40(we are in Australia). He doesn't know if it is the computer at fault or the sensor. Quoted me $1800 for a new computer with no guarantee and the sensor does not show up as a part through Chrysler. What do I do?

If you can go on line to a parts store check with them as to the location of that temp sensor and availability CHANGE the sensor. If no help, back to on line use a USA dealer. Was problem solved ? Question- - Is the restart when vehicle is still hot when it restarts? If problem was not solved by sensor replacement write me back, Lee.

The symptoms you describe, "limp mode", no check engine light, after a restart you get a temporary cure, and the year of your vehicle, tell me your catalytic converter is becoming clogged.

As your vehicle warms, the exhaust pressure builds and can't properly escape through the catalytic converter. When you turn the vehicle off, the pressure slowly releases, and when restarted it will run ok again until the pressure builds.

I would replace the catalytic converter, and that should resolve your issue.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Check the connection to the vehicle speed sensor. You can check the vehicle speed sensor by using a voltmeter set at millivolt. Then pass a metallic object close to it. The sensor should induce voltage as you pass the metallic object close to it. If not replace the vehicle speed sensor.

Is in limp mode and wont go above 35 mph


Get an OBDII reader and connect to see what error codes you are getting. Limp mode can be caused by many different things including problems with the transmission.

Where is the speed sensor located on a 2002 Chrysler Concorde


Beware speed sensors seldom fail. Chrysler products transmission have a limp mode where they only shift to second gear when something goes wrong and many times when nothing is wrong. If the speedometer fails it goes to limp. If an OBD scan gives a transmission code sometimes clearing the code will end the problem. When driving if the transmission shifts one time as it should the sensor is working.

On my 2006 Chrysler 300, the brake light, check engine light and other minor dash lights are on and the transmission won't shift out of 1st gear. Any idea what's going on?


If a car goes into limp mode, its likely something spectacular has gone wrong and the car is protecting itself from major damage. You will probably have to go to a Chrysler Dealer to rectify and get them to clear the fault off the cars computer.

1990 chrysler new yorker will not shift into overdriver


You may have to have your ******/computer ran for any codes to give you a better idea of why it is limp mode. There are many causes of limp mode. A sensor or solenoid or bad wire will send the computer into limp mode. The TPS and map sensor both can affect limp mode

My Chrysler cirrus goes into low 1 or low 2 on its on. It says that it goes in limp mode. What would cause that. Its a automatic transmission.


"Limp Mode" is determined by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). It could be going into limp mode as a result of a transmission malfunction or it may be going into limp mode as the result of an engine control problem. The only way to find out is to scan your onboard computer system and retrieve any engine or transmission fault codes and diagnose and repair accordingly.

Please note that engine control problems can CAUSE transmission control problems. If there are any engine control faults, these MUST be diagnosed and repaired FIRST.

Trans stays in limp mode, speed sensor has been changed,speedometer does not work, if speedometer head was bad or unhooked,would that cause mw problem? It is a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hi,
Your engine management and maybe even your transmission is controlled by the ECU. As such, many ECU units are fitted with a 'limp home mode'. When it detects that something semi-serious is wrong, it enters the limp mode, which means that the engine won't rev beyond a pre-programmed speed, you can't accelerate very fast, or you may indeed be speed-restricted to 40 mph or similar. The transmission may even stay in one or two gears. The alternative would be to either let you drive at regular speeds, with the danger of letting you trash your car or stopping you from going anywhere .
You should have a Check Engine light. Go to a major chain auto parts store and they should read the ‘code’ for free, then go to rdtiburon.com and ask what the code actually indicating or is really bad to your car. They will advise you what you ought to do.
Because you replaced the speed sensor and are still experiencing the problem, we suspect that you have a faulty speedometer cluster.
Please check this link and go through the article to have an indepth knowledge to your problem....
