Change both sensors at the same time. Once you change that, have the computers reset. That will take your transmission out of safe mode. But speedometer must work to keep transmission out of safe mode. Input sensor lets transmission know when to change gears. If it gets no signal at all it changes to safe mode 1st and 2nd gear. Which runs your RPMs really high. If you drove a lot with it likes this. Once sensors are changed. Check transmission fluid while its running and on flat ground, make sure you use the right transmission fluid, wrong one could cost you a transmission.

Speedometer behaves erratically (needles shoots down to 0) and forces transmission into limp in mode while driving.

the output speed sensor is going bad,or may have a broken wire on the r the wire if so,or replace the sensor.Transmission goes into limp mode to protect it'self,and engine,from internal damage. repair this,and you should be good

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.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M. Simultaneously, the Check Engine light came on, the speedometer stopped working, and the car doesn't shift out of 2nd gear. What's the likely problem?

these vehicles have alot of problems with the tcm( tranmission control module) internal failures of trans speed sensors. your car is currently in "limp in mode" to protect your trasmission!!!

I have a 1999 oldsmobile speedometer want work I try to drive wont go to speed

You will need to replace the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), it is located on the transmission close to the drive axles, the reason your car won't go up to speed is because your ECM (Computer) is in (limp mode) because your VSS is not giving it a reading so the Computer is limiting the speed to protect the engine and drivetrain until you get it repaired. If you purchase one you can install it yourself, just unscrew it from the transmission case, unplug the connectors and replace, no calibration is needed.

My 99 chrysler concord speedometer quit working and it wont shift out of 2nd gear. What is wrong?

Chances are the check engine light came on also. You should have the vehicle scanned for codes, it could be that the output speed sensor has failed. This could put the transmission into limp mode (second gear) and cause the speedometer not to work. I would guess this to be an inexpensive repair, .6 hours labor plus the cost of the sensor, $16.99 at O'reillys ...I hope this helps

Trans stays in limp mode, speed sensor has been changed,speedometer does not work, if speedometer head was bad or unhooked,would that cause mw problem? It is a 1995 chrysler cirrus

Your engine management and maybe even your transmission is controlled by the ECU. As such, many ECU units are fitted with a 'limp home mode'. When it detects that something semi-serious is wrong, it enters the limp mode, which means that the engine won't rev beyond a pre-programmed speed, you can't accelerate very fast, or you may indeed be speed-restricted to 40 mph or similar. The transmission may even stay in one or two gears. The alternative would be to either let you drive at regular speeds, with the danger of letting you trash your car or stopping you from going anywhere .
You should have a Check Engine light. Go to a major chain auto parts store and they should read the ‘code’ for free, then go to and ask what the code actually indicating or is really bad to your car. They will advise you what you ought to do.
Because you replaced the speed sensor and are still experiencing the problem, we suspect that you have a faulty speedometer cluster.

you need to have three sensors checked on the transmission,output sensor,input sensor,and speed sensor,
one is not telling the computer your speed,so the computer keeps you in limp mode
