What might cause 2004 4l80e to be in limp mode no speedometer and stuck in 2nd gear

When the system goes into to Limp Home mode it means that a serious fault has occurred in the electronics or a mechanical failure has been sensed. What you need to do now is have the computer control system scanned for fault codes, this (the fault codes) will give you a starting point to diagnose the problem that has caused the Limp Home mode to be initiated by the computer control module.

Had a flat tire,reduced engine power light came on

Either the tire pressure monitoring system detected excessively low or zero tire pressure and the computer has been programmed to set the vehicle into limp mode when that happens or a wheel speed sensor or another sensor detected an issue when the tire deflated and the computer sent the vehicle into limp mode.

One way or the other, once in limp mode there would have been fault codes generated and could have be read with a scan tool. They have probably cleared now.

How to get 2005 nissian frontier 4.0 out of limp mode

You have the car scanned with the appropriate scan tool to pull up whatever fault codes are being generated by the computer because there will be one or more of them. Then the mechanics can begin to diagnose what the problem is and fix it. When the issue is fixed you car will no longer run in limp mode which it is doing currently to protect the engine and transmission because there is a significant fault that the computer has identified and has then restricted the vehicle to running in limp mode.

There are no easy fixes and there are literally dozens of possible problems that can send the vehicle into limp mode. If you don't want to do any of the above then the vehicle will very likely eventually stop altogether.

Check light comes on and goes into limp mode . Returns to normal by switching engine off and on again. lights goes out when battery is reconected

You need to have the codes scanned to determine what has failed. The light will continue to come on as long as the computer detects a problem and will put the vehicle in limp mode

Limp home mode

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

1999 voyager

this is called "limp mode" which means to "limp" home. Chryslers default to limp mode when there is a problem with a speed sensor, body control module or other sensor

scan the computer and see what it says

I sometimes remove a bettery terminal leave disconnected for a few minutes and this resets the computer and clears codes

better to scan though and clear and see if it helps
