Looking too buy peugeot 807 deisel 2.2 hdi been told it goes in limp mode but it still drives and willeventually get to 70 or 90


When a transmission is put into limp mode by the pcm/tcm, it's for a reason. The limp mode is to limit further damage until the problem can be diagnosed and properly repaired. Keep driving it and it will require a new transmission.

I have a 2006 Ford 500. It kicks in to "limp mode" occasionally. There doesn't seem to be any other issues with the transmission other than this.


TCC solenoid. This is for over drive. This is an internal transmission problem. Could be just the solenoid. It could be OD clutches. If you have an OD switch, keep it turned off/light on. If you don't have the money to repair it right now. Stay off the highway.

Where is the speed sensor located on a 2002 Chrysler Concorde


Beware speed sensors seldom fail. Chrysler products transmission have a limp mode where they only shift to second gear when something goes wrong and many times when nothing is wrong. If the speedometer fails it goes to limp. If an OBD scan gives a transmission code sometimes clearing the code will end the problem. When driving if the transmission shifts one time as it should the sensor is working.

2002 chrysler 300m limp mode


you need to be sure that auto trans fluid is in good shape and you need to be sure that it is not missing even little amounts. replace the filter too.

then you need dealer to reset transmission computer for you. if it still happens

if these wont cure you must be sure that selenoids inside transmission are in specs(check on factory service manual for resistance values of each coil).

and be sure that there are no loose electrical connections on transmissions especially a loose ground.

if it shift correctly there may not be a need of overhauling

My Chrysler cirrus goes into low 1 or low 2 on its on. It says that it goes in limp mode. What would cause that. Its a automatic transmission.


"Limp Mode" is determined by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). It could be going into limp mode as a result of a transmission malfunction or it may be going into limp mode as the result of an engine control problem. The only way to find out is to scan your onboard computer system and retrieve any engine or transmission fault codes and diagnose and repair accordingly.

Please note that engine control problems can CAUSE transmission control problems. If there are any engine control faults, these MUST be diagnosed and repaired FIRST.

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)"

Transmission locked up, felt like it was stuck in second or third gear. not shifting. shut engine off and restarted , shifting properly now. what causes this.


It was a temporary fault that put the car into limp mode (a safeguard operating condition designed to protect the transmission in case of serious failure). Sometimes a transient fault can occur, and the car goes into limp mode just to be sure it's not for real. Shutting off and restarting the car is the usual way to clear the fault and return the car to normal operation - if the problem was real, the car would've stayed in limp mode after restart, or gone into limp once you started driving again. I wouldn't sweat this one, since it went right back to normal operation.
