Question about 1997 Chrysler Town & Country
Trans shifts normally as long as its left in 3rd gear. When the trans is put in over drive it shifts fine and goes into over drive for about 90 seconds then it acts like it has been put in neutral then drops into 2nd gear and stays in limp mode until the ignition is turned off. It will then repeat the process. It has codes 36 54 and 700.
Usually this happens when the vehicle's computer is protecting it'self .... There might be some electrical issue going on with your car... Like... Maybe a sensor... the solenoid pack... or the TCM, (transmission control module).. This is the transmission computer... What

These are not valid codes. A valid code is one letter with four numbers behind it.

It has an electical problem. You need to take it to the dealership if you want it diagnosed correctly. It will need to be in limp in, and don't turn the car off as this is clearing the code out of the computer. Leave it running, tell the service advisor your situation and not to turn it off till someone can hook the scan tool to it. This will give them the cause of limp in, and should be able to be resolved after.

I agree completely with Michael Masters with one acception: Some faults, like erratic speed sensor input to the Body Control Module can cause "Limp-In Mode". Also, there are some ABS and/or Traction Control codes that can cause this. these types of codes CANNOT be retrieved for FREE using the generic OBD code readers at the auto parts places. These will require a full computer NETWORK scan using a scan tool that can access body controls, IPC data, ABS data, etc. The "free" way is worth a shot, but if they tell you there are no codes, then you need to take it to a professional technician that can provide a FULL scan.
