    The way I understand it from those who drive the vehicle the car drives but going into 2nd gear they have to let up on gas a little to have automatic shift. Then when it gets to close to 55 the RPMS go real high and you can't go over 55.

Saw your comment

may not be the solenoid

did you use a scanner to let you know if it's that?

it's under fail safe mode right now, not allowing you to go past that speed

in my case, the trouble code

FOR MY vehicle was a bad Vehicle speed sensor

and had set the check engine light as well

autozone, advance auto parts, and aamco transmissions can scan the car's computer for free

Testimonial: "My son has a scanner he used. I don't believe the check engine light did come on. But he was able to get a code among several others. We are trying to trouble shoot it before going to a mechanic. Thanks so much"

I have 1998 volkswagon jetta with the check engine code P0758

P0758 Volkswagen - Shift Solenoid 'B' Electrical

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 'B' valve
- Shift solenoid 'B' valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 'B' valve circuit is open or shorted

Worst possible scenario is that the Transmission Control Module has noticed the solenoid is either taking too much current (a short circuit) or too little current (an open circuit). The problem could be in a few different places: wiring between the TCM and the tranny, wiring internal to the tranny, the TCM has gone bad, or the solenoid itself. You can narrow this down by checking the resistance of the solenoid coils at the TCM connector, then at the tranny connector on the tranny.
Good luck, the mark 3 transmission is notoriously finicky.

  • What has happened is your transmission solenoid pack has gone bad. Not to worry, this is an easy fix.

  1. You need to purchase a transmission solenoid pack and a gasket.
  2. You can take your chances with a salvage yard or you can get one off of e-bay for about half of what the dealer will charge you or you can go to the dealer.
  3. Pop your hood and look on the top of the transmission. That little black box is the transmission solenoid.
  4. Clean the area around the solenoid real well with a shop rag.
  5. Remove the connector hooked onto the solenoid.
  6. You may have a linkage to pop off.
  7. Now remove the long bolts holding it into the transmission.
  8. Now wiggle the solenoid out.
  9. Reverse to finish.
  • That's it. Real easy fix for this vehicle.

Loss of blower fan, turn signals and won't come out of park

Check for a blown fuse. This vehicle has a safety feature that allows it to switch gears only when the brake pedal is depressed and the ignition is turned forward. When the brake pedal is depressed it sends a voltage signal to the shift interlock solenoid that then allows it to shift.You can manually unlock the shifter by inserting a pin into the arperture on the left side of the center console. Push the locking lever rearwards to allow the selector lever to be moved.Also check to see if your brake lights are working this is where the shift interlock solenoid gets the voltage from if they are working chances are the shift interlock solenoid has gone bad.

Dodge charger will not shift out of park 2006

there is a solenoid that is operated when you put your foot on the brake to shift out of park, if the solenoid doesnt recieve power than either you have no power to the switch on the brake pedal to activate the switch (check fuses) or the solenoid itself has gone bad, the solenoid is usually right next to where the shifter is located
