SOURCE: 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.

95 stealth...what else can it be? I bought this car 3 months ago and haven't gotten to drive it yet. It is stuck in limp mode.


Can you pull any errors off the ECU? Do you have the standard dash installed? My Alfa will not change up from second if my dash is not installed.

Trans stuck in limp mode i'm getting a p1751 code


P 1751 Shift Solenoid" A" performance. The solenoid is part of the transmission valve body and yes if this solenoid fails you will get limp mode.The only solution is a new solenoid may be even the wires to it or even the transmission module

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!

96 chrysler LHS "limp mode"


OK here is the bad news....yes you propably do need the solenoid pack replaced in the trans,BUT....you can try replacing the input and output sensors on the trans they are about $16.00 each at the dealer,I dont recommend aftermarket sensors.they are pretty easy to get to dont forget to clear the pcm after the repairs.good luck have a good day DB

Limp mode


Have u checked w/ scan tool for codes? If not, have garage, dealer, or parts store (free service at most parts stores) check for stored codes, and as u know, Chrysler is known for their c_rappy trannys,. I just had mine rebuilt at 125k (I changed the fluid and filter every 30k, but still failure). Limp mode is to protect from further damage, so something is going on. If no stored codes, drop the trans pan, check for metal in pan and on magnet, color of fluid, burnt odor? Let me know what u find. good luck
