Power and normal. Switch to power when towing. The gears change at higher r.p.m. for more power when towing. Be sure to put it back to normal when not towing bad m.p.g. in power.

It is the Power -vs- Normal switch. In Power (P) mode, the shift points on your transmission are extended so you can accelerate quicker. The Normal (N) mode is for typical driving and will increase your gas mileage.

Netural safety switch

Daewoo cars have track record for dependability in addition to solid construction. The most important part of a car's design is the safety features. Circumvent excessive risk while motoring by insuring that your car has the safety gear that you want. A vehicle's Neutral Safety Switch is located on your clutch in the case that it's a manual transmission, and on the shifter in an automatic. A broken Neutral Safety Switch can cause your vehicle to suddenly start in gear, causing vehicle damage or personal injury.

If you don't have the Neutral Safety Switch, your vehicle will fail to work. The Neutral Safety Switch is typically situated below the clutch of trucks which have a stick-shift transmission. The primary function of a Neutral Safety Switch is to stop your truck from starting when in gear. The car's Neutral Safety Switch acts as a safety feature, keeping you from starting the engine if the car is in gear. The Neutral Safety Switch is an electronic part which is essential while starting your car.Here's a link to what it look's like.

Fault p1754 limp mode

This DTC is for an input clutch solenoid vavle function issue. This could be caused by a faulty Transmission Control Module (TCM), A bad terminal pin connection at the transmission harness connector, or a faulty or sticking control valve. My best solution i can provide to you is to take it either to the dealer where they can use the Consult II scan tool to monitor the transmission control functions, or somewhere that has an equivalent scanner to monitor these items. Hope this helps

On a 2002 cavalier the transmission has no dip stick and it is slipping

Replace the dipstick for your transmission. Top it off with fluid, and re assess the performance of your transmission.

Your transmission will not function properly without a certain build up of pressure. Not having the dipstick in the check line will not allow this pressure to build.

Where is the automatic transmission dipstick located on a 89 ford escort and why does the gear shift act in its starting, whether or not? ( moving it)

Dip stick comes out of dip stick tube coming from transmission (side of trans) Look real hard on the side of the transmission behind the engine you will see it.

The second issue sounds like a neutral safety switch.

Reverse light dont work lights are good

The switch detecting the reverse position of the gear stick may be faulty. If you have automatic transmission the switch is under the transmission lever console as part of the neutral safety switch assembly.
