Check engine light on ? Or any other lights , wrench symbol light ? Your best bet would be to have a scan tool hooked up , check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in all the control modules on the vehicle . A factory or professional scan tool , not a code reader .

My sister in-law has a 2008 caliber. took it to advance auto after her car went into limp mode. it has codes p0700, p0708, p0776, p0746, p0777.


Shift solenoids were stuck on. This could be caused by several issues. Speed sensor could be bad, throttle position sensor could be bad, etc. This is causing the car to go into "limp-in" mode. This causes the transmission to remain in 2nd gear to allow you to get to a repair shop. Have autozone clear the codes and see if it acts up again. Usually, limp-in mode can be stopped by stopping the car, turning it off, and re-starting it. Codes will remain stored in the computer until cleared by an automotive technician.

Sounds like "limp in mode" is activated. Could be a bad trans controller, or internal problem. What color is the fluid? If the trans is slipping, limp in mode will be activated and will not upshift past 2nd gear. If fluid is black, trans is fried

Check engine light came on and said map sensor. car has a rough idle, no power at take off. New map sensor was installed and car issues were not resolved. H E L P ! ! !


Did you clear the trouble codes with the scanner? OBDII trouble codes must be cleared with a scanning tool. If the codes are not cleared the computer could be in the"limp home mode". Once the codes are cleared, drive the car for at least one day. If there is no improvement, scan the engine again for codes.
