SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

most newer vehicles  have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad!  I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem!    when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first    good luck

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

The first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level as some of your symptoms are classic for low fluid levels.

My 2006 BMW 325i automatic transmission is stuck in 3rd gear


I believe that is 'limp mode'. You want to get a vagcom reader to see what codes it is posting to see what the cause is.

95 Nissan Maxima transmission code p 07340 p 11005 transmission is in limp mode have erased several times


what have you done to repair the fault that shows the codes?
from your statement you are removing the codes and resetting the ECM but the codes come back and the vehicle goes back into limp mode
one of the codes (p 0734 --0?) refers to gear 4--incorrect ratio===causes --wiring---TR sensor /switch ---shift solenoids---transmission mechanical fault
If that fault area is not fixed then the TCM doesn't know what gear to select so it goes to limp mode

What Gearbox should be in a 1991 BMW 525i E34


Hello,

The safest way for you to know which gearbox fits your car (second hand) you first have to go to a parts shop with your VIN and get the code and the model for your gearbox.

Don't just rely on car year and engine power.

Hope this helps

Hi,
Water is most likely sitting in the connector at the front of your transmission sump(oil pan) and shorting the pins together. Just unplug the connectors and blow out the water, use some contactcleaner spray on the terminals and blow dry with compressed air! If it's still stuck in limp home mode either go to the dealer to have it reset or try disconnecting the battery for 10-30 minutes and reconnect!

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!

My 2006 bmw 750li is showing transmission fault


hi, this could be your battery loosing voltage, check it with a volt meter to see if it reads between 12v - 12.5 v if it is low it might need replacing, you could also check your alternator to see if it is charging correctly you will find your car will be stuck in either 3rd or 4th gear ( limp home mode ) hope this helps please vote thanks

My 91 dodge stealth is in limp mode how do i fix this transmission problem


Your car is in "limp"mode because the computer doesn't know what speed your doing,So it doesn't shift,
There are three possible reasons for this,
#1= input sensor faulty on transmission,
#2=output sensor faulty on transmission,
#3=speed sensor faulty on transmission,
you need to have the transmission codes read to know which one,Autozone checks codes for free.

1991 bmw 520i transmission goes into 'safe' mode


quoted from BMWE34.network
" Transmission locks in "limp" mode - 3rd gear so you can "limp" home or to your nearest dealer."

"Things to check before even contemplating a transmission overhaul:
Check electrics - Alternator and battery.
Replace DME Relay and Fuel Pump Relay - not expensive.
Remove disassemble, clean and reassemble gear selector switch - If it looks beyond saving, replace ($200)
Service the transmission ($130 from a specialist) and check/replace transmission speed sensor ($90)"
