SOURCE: transmission stuck in 2nd gear

If this is an automatic possible causes are: shifter needs adjustment, manual shift valve is defective, possible transmission range sensor is defective.

If this is a stick possible causes: Shifter needs adjustment, fork or schronizer defective.

SOURCE: 1997 intrepid automatic transmission stuck

I also have a 97 3.5 intrepid and it is also stuck in 2nd gear which sounds just like this "limp mode" that has been discussed BUT I had both speed sensors changed n the side if the ****** but it's still doing the same thing, after having those put in is there any kind of resetting I need to do or something because if not those sensors didn't fix it! I am a widowed mother and I have no one to steer m in the right direction o oes anyone have any suggestions for me!

I have a 96 gmc Sonoma stuck in 2nd gear how do I fix it.tried to remove the gear box but its stuck


Usually, stuck on 2nd gear is a safety mode(limp in) used in modern vehicles. Have your vehicle transmission scanned for trouble codes and fix whatever caused the trouble code to set( if any). Or worse case scenario your transmission may need overhauling. Have your transmission checked by a qualified, honest tech. since the wrong call can cost you thousands of unneeded repairs.

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
