You have a gearbox problem, clearly.
Could be low fluid, could be a poblem with the valve body, could be a problem with the torque converter, could be a gearbox meltdown... Who knows!
Scan it with VCDS, or take it to a transmission joint who specialise in ZF gearboxes...

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear


the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

2003 Chevy Avalanche won't start (incorrect gear indicator)


PRNDL Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display blanks if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
• The IPC receives a class 2 message indicating the park position and the column park switch indicates a position other than park, open input.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Could be the transmission range sensor . Testing would need to be done , hooking up a scan tool ! Doing electrical testing etc...

Check engine light car feels like its in high gear


The problem is most likely a PNP(shift position switch) problem. When this happens, the trans goes into limp home mode. The trans goes into high gear and doesn't allow any shifting up or down. This is to protect the trans.

My volvo 850 transmition cut out on me. For a while the arrow on the dash was blinking and it would switch to limp mode. I brought it in to be looked at and they didn't find a problem. Last time it...


Any time the transmission goes into the limp mode, it generates an error code that tells what caused it to go into limp mode. It could be something as simple as a loose connection on a sensor for the transmission computer. The code would explain which sensor was sending the correct signal.
By restarting the car you are resetting the transmission computer, clearing the limp condition.

Transmission problem


That transmission is the 42 LE,used to be known as the 606,the sister trans of the minivans' 42 TE,aka 604.Yes,first and foremost,the Check Engine light needs to be read with a scan tool,and the trouble codes recorded,or written down.Diagnosing the trouble codes is part of determining the problem.It is a step by step procedure eliminating or confirming problem areas.Input and output speed sensors and PRNDL needs to be observed,as well as the CVI's or Clutch Volume Indexes.Chrysler's Transmission Control Module's (TCM) monitors clutch pack clearances (there are 5 packs) by an assigned numerical value.It can be observed by a technician,and known by the numeric value,if the clutch pack has lost clearance and worn out.Many things to look at by a qualified technician.
