SOURCE: 1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode

Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html

You may want to inspect the "pass-through" connector for water contamination, and/or related wiring for corrosion.

SOURCE: 99 jaguar transmission code p1722

This code is an indication that the transmission has excessive slippage, the code is for the input and output turbine speed sensors, based on what i know of this problem the trans has a mechanical problem, that would be low fluid pressure or worn out forward clutches, make sure the trans fluid is not low, if it is ok you will need to have the trans torn down for inspection..

I have a 2004 rx8 when you start it it runs great until it warms up & goes into limp mode. Turn it off & back on most of the time its fine for about a mile then back into limp mode. Please HELP


first option is to have the fault codes read
limp mode is activated by both the engine and transmission sensors
going to limp mode so quick could be an overheating problem , transmission vss/tcm problem or ECM fault
by reading the fault codes , you will get a better idea of the problem

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.

Fuse # 21 blows when igtion turned on.what causes this?


Whatever accessory or system is powered by fuse #21 has a short. It only blows when the ignition is turned on because no power goes to the fuse with the ignition off. If your transmission is in limp in mode, you need to have it checked. You don't mention make, model, or year vehicle, but your car may have a separate transmission control module (TCM); in any case see if you have any codes that indicate if there is a problem with the transmission. The O2 sensors have nothing to do with the transmission being in limp in mode, and I doubt that they are connected directly to the fuse. Most O2 sensors get their power through the PCM.

1996 Dodge stratus es automatic wont shift outta low gear .is this a sensor issue?


probably not if it is limp mode
the ECM puts the car in limp mode to prevent serious problems in the engine or transmission
could be no coolant, sump oil , transmission oil etc
run the fault codes and find the reason for the mode

95 Nissan Maxima transmission code p 07340 p 11005 transmission is in limp mode have erased several times


what have you done to repair the fault that shows the codes?
from your statement you are removing the codes and resetting the ECM but the codes come back and the vehicle goes back into limp mode
one of the codes (p 0734 --0?) refers to gear 4--incorrect ratio===causes --wiring---TR sensor /switch ---shift solenoids---transmission mechanical fault
If that fault area is not fixed then the TCM doesn't know what gear to select so it goes to limp mode

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.

Transmission will shift properly and then it wont shift it stays on first i have disconnet and connect battery cables for it to shift


Sounds like you have a transmission problem.
The reason it's stuck in 1st or 2nd is the computer goes into "limp home mode" allowing you to get the vehicle to a service center to get it repaired.
By disconnecting the battery you reset the computer and your transmission works until it senses the problem again and goes into limp home mode again
Get your trans serviced

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)"
