Loose pins on Solenoid connector

There seems to be loose pins on the Solenoid connector that's causing the Minivan to go into limp mode. Is there a way to fix that without replacing the solenoid pack?

Hi Mark, I'm glad to help! Mark, if in fact you do have loose pins and its not the Solenoid Pack itself. NOTE: Also if its not a transmission internal issue causing it, are an issue with the Solenoid Pack itself. You can check with the dealership and see if they have a wiring pigtail for the Solenoid Pack. I've never had to replace one here at the dealership but there's always a first time for everything. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mark!

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: 1997 Sebring Shift Solenoid pack

emissionwiz is wrong the solenoid pack is on the side of the trans external and is pretty easy to replace, just remove the air box, take the 5/16 bolt out that holds the wiring in. Next there will be three 10mm bolts, pull them out and then you can pull the entire solenoid pack out.

SOURCE: My Chrysler Town and Country 2001 is in limp mode.

you cant get rid of the issue until you find the cause and fix it. i would not recommend throwing any more parts at it, get someone with a scan tool and see what codes are there before you waste any more money

SOURCE: What is wrong here?

P0700 indicates that there are codes stored in the TCM. You need to scan the TCM for the actuall transmission trouble codes. This can only be done with a higher end scan tool to do this.

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.

On my 02 elantra once the engine is warmed up it will not rev up when i push the gas what can cause this

It sounds like your engine is going into the 'limp home' mode, indicating there is a significant emissions equipment malfunction. Is the 'check engine' light on? You can take the car to a decent Auto Parts Store (O'reilly, Autozone,etc) and they will scan for the error code and reset the 'light' and get the car out of 'limp home' if the fault was intermittent. If the light comes back on, the malfunction has to be repaired. Literally dozens of minor malfunctions will cause this. The Federal Emissions Standard laws REQUIRE the 'limp home' mode when the malfunction will cause a significant increase in emissions. The problem could be a loose gas cap or loose vacuum line etc. MAJOR component failures are rare.

Fault p1754 limp mode

This DTC is for an input clutch solenoid vavle function issue. This could be caused by a faulty Transmission Control Module (TCM), A bad terminal pin connection at the transmission harness connector, or a faulty or sticking control valve. My best solution i can provide to you is to take it either to the dealer where they can use the Consult II scan tool to monitor the transmission control functions, or somewhere that has an equivalent scanner to monitor these items. Hope this helps

2002 Dodge Caravan with approx. 66,000 miles, check engine light came on, seemed to have stayed in 2nd gear. Could it be a pac solenoid transmission problem?

You need to find someone who can pull the codes from the transmission and see what kind of trans fault it is. If there is a fault in the trans the controller will put it into limp in mode which is 2nd gear locked. Won't shift out of 2nd...You need to pull the codes and see if it is internal in the trans or an external sensor-Good Luck

01 bmw 325xi intermittent problem -- dsc, brake, abs lights go on, alarm sounds, car goes into limp mode and won't accelerate over 10 mph. If left for 24 hours, all lights are off and car works like...

  check your battery connections.  A loose terminal when cold can cause this.  Your computer is loosing the adaptives for fuel control.  Because your  car has no accelerator cable, they are two sensors one at the pedal and one at the motor that talk to each other without proper grounding and current they will not work causing limp mode.   When it is in limp mode the car should sound funny almost running poorly.  Sometimes the adaptives need reprogramming.  Good luck.  I need more info
