Have the codes checked for the drivetrain. They should tell you if you need a sensor, or a transmission.

Is check engine light on? if so it is going to say that either the input or output sensor on the transmission is bad, pretty common chrysler cars!!
Autozone carries these, thats how common it is!!

Can a bad knock sensor cause a tranny to go stay in 2nd gear(limp mode)on a 2008 dodge ram 3.7 liter.Got 2 codes a #2 knock sensor and tcm power low voltage


The transmission is in limp-in mode because of the second DTC - TCM (transmission control module) low voltage. The knock sensor code has nothing to do with that. You need to have the TCM and transmission checked out.

My 2001 dodge startus transmission wont shift, speedometer works, engine light is on. Need help?


Transmission is in limp mode. This enables you to drive the car to service. Anytime there is a transmission code in the computer even if nothing is wrong it will stay in limp mode until the code is erased. Most retail auto parts stores will run an obd2 diagnostic scan to determine the problem and erase existing codes, no charge (Auto Zone, Advance and others)

My 1997 Dodge Stratus is stuck in limp mode, second gear forward or reverse. It doesn't have a speedometer display or the tachometer most of the time. I replaced the output speed sensor and the Tr


Its not likely the transmission is causing the problem if both the speedo and tach are out. The tach does not involve the transmission.
Sounds more like a problem with the instrument cluster or the body computer.
You may have to get a used shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and testing procedures.

Transmission doesnot want to shift out of second gear.


Sounds like the transmission has put itself into "limp-in" mode which the transmission controller is programmed to do when some part/wire goes bad such that if the unit was allowed to shift it would damage itself unnecessarily. It is designed to keep you moving in 2nd gear only so as to get to where it can be corrected.
First check the transmission linkage and make sure it is actually clicking into gears. If not, it may need to be re-adjusted. Next, your transmission may be in "limp home mode" (which I mentioned above) which is popular with those transmissions. There are 2 speed sensors in your transmission, an input and an output. These tell the transmission what speed the engine is running and tells the transmission when to shift. They run about $17 each (depending where you buy 'em). Make sure to pick up a deep dish socket to fit them as well. Other than that, you may have more serious problems and you should take it to a shop. Hope this helps!

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!

2002 Impala: transmission limp mode...


Most transmissions have a limp mode, or limp-home mode.
If the driveline computer thinks there is something wrong, it can lock the transmission into one gear, such as 2nd gear. Usually reverse will also be available. The Impala automatic has 4 speeds. 2nd speed or gear will get you home, but the engine rpms can get a little high. I wouldn't get on the expressway will in limp mode.
Before taking to the shop, you might want to try and reset limp mode by turning the car off for a couple minutes, or you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery.

Car wont shift from 2nd gear and speedometer doesnt work. diagnostic code p0700. what does this mean?


the PO700 code is a generic transmission code. You would need access to a proper scan tool to check for transmission codes. However if you speedo isnt working, it sounds as though you have a bad output speed sensor. This part runs about 60.00 from the dealer, and is fairly easy to install. No speed signal will put the transmission into limp mode, and keep it stuck in 2nd gear.

I have a Dodge 2000 Stratus, It is stuck in 2nd and the seedometer is dead, any ideas??


the most likely problem is a bad "vehicle speed sensor", the speedo is electric and not cable driven, it also could be why the vehicle is in 2nd! (limp mode). good luck, marty
