    This is what really happened on my 2003 Nissan Cube. The battery had gone dead whilst listening to the radio. We jump started the car only to find out that when you engage in gear (drive) the car would suddenly jerk forward roughly. The same with reverse gear. driving the car it would go up to 60 km and rev counter will be around 3000rpm. When I presses the shift to manual button its showing that the car is in gear no 3 and its not going any further than thar. I have changed the tranny twice coz I Thought it was the gearbox but the problem still remains. I reset the ecm through a diagnostic tool but still nothing. I have spent a lot of money on this car. any solutions guys will be highly appreciated

Some vehicles shouldn't be jump started the conventional way some you may need to build the battery up before trying to start up. Then of course if just by chance you put the battery leads on back wards you can foul up the electronics on some vehicles hope this isn't your case.

SOURCE: TCS/SLIP & Check Engine Light Warning

TCS is Traction Control System,and all TCS's are controlled though the Anti Lock Braking (ABS) system.Here's how it works:Each wheel,or in some cases,only the drive wheels have a speed sensor mounted near the hub or axle,and sends a speed signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).The PCM monitors wheel speed continuously,and if it sees a speed out of the ordinary,say for example the right rear tire is spinning and traveling at a much higher speed than the left rear,the PCM will pulse the brakes through the ABS system on the right rear to slow down the right rear so that the left and right wheel speeds match up,this is how the traction control works.So,if you have a TCS problem,the PCM will see this and set a Dignostic Trouble Code (DTC).You need to pull the DTC's out of the system with a scan tool,diagnose and repair the DTC's.It could likely be something as simple as a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor,but you won't know until the codes are pulled out,as this will point in the general direction.Good luck.

SOURCE: 2005 Nissan pathfinder slow acel. Limp mode? HELP PLEASE

it does seem that that might be the problem. the only way that you can fix it is to go through the ecm and reset it. this requires a diagnostic scan tool not just a code reader. when the tcm was changed was the ecm cleared?. if not this would explain alot because the ecm still thinks there is a fault. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Maxima SE tachometer clock

Its not a clock its just calculates the time it took to make trip. The display at the bottom of the tachometer area is a "TRIP COMPUTER". It shows OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE, DISTANCE TO EMPTY, AVERAGE FUEL COMSUMPTION, AVERAGE SPEED and JOURNEY TIME. Press the "TRIP" button on the steering wheel to change through the modes. Holding the "TRIP" button for more than one second will reset the mode.

When driving at over 2000 raves, the gears disengage to gear 1, this will only change after the car cools completely. This the same Nissan Serena 2003 model.

When a vehicle regularly goes into 'limp home mode' after it has been running for while and the engine gets hot this points to a speed sensor electrical issue. Do you see any indication that he speedo dial behaves oddly when the engine enters into lomp home? First I would have the vehicle checked for diagnostic trouble codes (Autozone can do this) but my best guess is that you will be looking at swapping out the speed sensor on the output shaft of the gear box

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.

Went on trip, drove a little over 500 miles to destination. When went from one freeway to another car seemed to go into a limp mode after slowing to bout 20- 25 mph. I reset by putting it in park turning...

PO456 is most times a gas cap or gasket,
to get an incorrect gear ratio the transmission has probably started to slip.

Change the fluid and filter first off in the transmission and use only atf+4 fluid and possibly the govenor pressure sensor,and change gas cap.

I ave justed had the engine light come on in the car, the car seems to be driving okay but jumps in and out of limp mode. any ideas?

In some cars, depending on what caused the check engine light comes on, it may cause the engine to reduce power in order to protect the engine. This sounds like the symptom will start and disappear at times causing your car to go in and out of limp mode

2004 Nissan Maxima Intermittent Transmission Problem?

I don't know exactly how the nissans work with their "limp" mode for what gear it goes into and such. This sounds like the computer is sensing a problem and going into the "limp" mode. Go get the code pulled to see what is says. If it has anything saying trans slipping or ratio problem then something internal in the the trans is wrong. Also, check the trans fluid and see if its burnt ( dark brown or black).
