Most current automatic transmissions will be put into a "limp" mode if the electronics detect a fault in the transmission. That is, the transmission will go into one gear (usually second or third depending on how many speed ranges the transmission has) and allow you to drive it slowly to a service department or transmission shop. The intent is to prevent further damage by continuing to drive with the problem. It's possible the problem is relatively minor and inexpensive to repair, but continuing to drive it will almost certainly cause more damage (and be more expensive) to repair.

Hello i can assist you your your fault code you have supplied indicates your pressure control solenoid "C" is malfunctioning this will cause your transmission not to shift properly and will stay stuck in separate gears including 3rd gear.I recommend taking your vehicle into a transmission specialist for proper repair and transmission service this is a delicate job if you have not performed such transmission repairs.You should not be operating your vehicle with this control solenoid malfunctioning.

Transmission stuck in 2nd gear on a 2001 dodge grand sport flex fuel .Replaced it with another transmission thought that would take care of the problem but the same thing happened with the second...


Have you checked for trouble codes? Trans. stuck in 2nd gear is 'limp mode' when there is a problem, which could be a bad sensor. Scan for any stored codes 1st to get some clues as to what is wrong.
