Question about 1991 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

My transmission light comes on

After the light turns on, the transmission goes into limp mode. Once the car cools completely it generally goes off and the tranny works fine until you turn off the car after it has been run for a while then the light will come back on. If I cycle the ingnition key twice this sometimes turns the light off and the tranny will work just fine. But it does not always turn off the light.

Most likely fault is a ground. But could be anything electrical.

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

How do i know how to fix my 2000 volkswagen passat once it goes into limp mode


limp mode is activated by the ECM to protect the engine and the transmission. What you have if it is missing would not cause the problem as it would have been evident before the limp mode was turned on. Run the fault codes to determine which sensor activated the limp mode.

Astra goes limp mode once service lifght comes on


this is normal practice to protect the engine /transmission from costly repairs. Run the fault codes to find which sensor is activated. Check all fluid levels (coolant at the radiator cap). Fix the fault and use a scanner to reset the light.

How to fix limp mode


The ABS system may cause a vehicle to go into limp mode if it is defective. Most times that will happen if your ABS light is lit up on your dash board!

04 Chrysler 300m goes into limp mode only when the A/C is on? i get P0700 and P1776 codes


P0700 is a general fault code for the transmission. P1776 is a fault code for the low/reverse solenoid inside the transmission. Since your problem is only present while the A/C is on, it is most likely electrical. Check your battery charge and your alternator performance FIRST, as either of these can cause this problem. Check the wiring to the solenoid, which is located at the front of the transmission. Finally, change the transmission control relay located inside the power distribution box ("fuse box") under the hood.

2006 Ford Freestyle wrench light comes on and goes into limp home mode how do you fix


There is no way to get around a proper repair on a computer controlled transmission, that is wishful thinking. What is the fault code that is memory? Have you even run the system scan yet?

My cooling fans run all time even when ac light is off. my engine light is on and the obd2 reading says the bank one oxygen sensor is done, and it says theres a cooling problem. why are the fans on ?


was there a code logged with the cooling problem?,this seems to be the fail safe for that code,usually fans only lock on if there are numerous codes and it often indicates a 'limp home' mode that the system goes into,generally it will restrict transmission shifts also.Have you tried to have the fault codes cleared?They may come back but it will indicate if fans are on due to them.

Neutral light blinks


Hi,

Mitsubishi's electronic transmission has a built-in diagnostic....which is indicated via the 'N' (Neutral) light on the instrument cluster.

When the diagnostic computer detects 2 or more of the same fault (which does not rectify itself), then the transmission goes into "LIMP MODE' - this is to protect the transmission from further damage, but will allow you to drive in 3rd gear.

First, we need to ascertain what "sequence" the 'N' light is flashing:

If the N light flashes ONCE per second, then there is an abnormality with one of the transmission components, and will require accessing the computer for further trouble codes.

If the N light flashes TWICE per second, then the transmission fluid is overheating also - pull over, let engine idle in N for a few minutes to allow it to cool down.

Turning key off will only reset the computer momentarily, until and the transmission goes back into LIMP MODE again, so further diagnostic investigation will be required.

If you are technically inclined, i'm happy to explain how you can access the computer codes, without a code reader.

Let me know...

Cheers,

1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode


Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html
