Time to bring it to a mechanic, or buy a scanner and plug it in to your car and post us your DTC's. If you feel even the slightest bit unsure about it, bring it to a mechanic, its worth the piece of mind.

    It was on a scanner with fault code P1299 low turbo pressure.

    Visually inspect the turbo, intercooler, and wast gate/release valves. HOWEVER it is unlikely your car in going into "limp" due to a low boost pressure.

SOURCE: Mits pajero io check engine light came on what

Since your check engine light is turn on, some fault code is stored in your PCM (computer), I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is there; with this code number we could send additional details and tips to solve it.

Keep us updated.

SOURCE: while driving the engine jumped to 3000 rpm's and went into limp mode. check engine light on.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

SOURCE: shogun elegance ask light comes on and the car goes in to limp mode


The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

I was just stopped at a light in 2007 Taurus when I went to pull off it wouldn't drive so I put it in reverse and it I drove home in drive 1. Do I need a transmission? They say limp mode help

Your transmission needs to be diagnosed by someone with experience and diagnostic tools. It may be something relatively uncomplicated and inexpensive, or it may require a rebuild or replacement. The limp in mode is purposely designed to keep you from doing more damage to the transmission, so 'limp' it to the shop if one is close.

Get an OBDII reader and connect to see what error codes you are getting. Limp mode can be caused by many different things including problems with the transmission.

Limp Mode Transmission

If your mechanic is clearing the code he should also be able to diagnose the code he is clearing. Your transmission is in safe mode or limp home. Take it to a shop that knows what they are doing

Blinking Center Diff Light while vehicle on the move.

The pajero has a limp mode for when there is an issue with the 4x4 system. The ECU apparently limits the vehicles capabilities until the problem is fixed. By turning the car off and on again you are reseting the fail-safe until it again triggers. The fault may be that a part of the drive train, secondary transfer case or auto locking hubs is not working correctly. For my Pajero, the auto hubs were not disengaging. This was later found to be caused by sticking air solendoids. Each solenoids cost was about $200 and there are two for the hubs. I was able to free them up by soaking the solenoids in CRC/ WD40 and a bit inside the air tubes as well plus repeatedly engaging and disengaging the 4x4 lever to activate the hubs. The auto hubs may not be the issue in your case but its worth a try.
