Mechanics advised that gearbox needs replace after diagnostic Of codes . Dash light still on after codes being read , have had ecu replaced 2yrs ago ? What do you think it could be , thanks phil


didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently

Limp mode transmission


Mercedes suffer with the radiator whereby the gearbox oil and engine coolant leak in together and cause gearbox to stay in lower gears like limp mode this will also give incorrect readings on coolant so worth getting both gearbox and coolant checked i beleive they call this a glycol test??

The car is not selecting gears...it's an automatic but will not pick up any of the gears! None of the warning lights remain on but we hve seen a warning signal alerting to gearbox failure. Any...


These boxes rely on electronics and hydrualics.... the gearbox has internal electronics and external, in the form of a control unit(computor) that also gets lots of information from other control units on the car... does it just stay in one gear?, if so is probably in a "limp home mode".... sorry but this is a dealer diagnostics job or and internal failure of a mechanical/hydraulic part within the transmission......

Xr6 going into limp home mode when car is turned


theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you

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.
