Mechanics advised that gearbox needs replace after diagnostic Of codes . Dash light still on after codes being read , have had ecu replaced 2yrs ago ? What do you think it could be , thanks phil

didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently

My chrysler neon 2.0 16 v is reving up sometimes and in second and third gears it starts to chug for a couple of secconds before driving right what would cause this?. year 2000..

Could be one of these things:
Dodgy exhaust sensor. Dodgy Timing Belt. Kanckered EMS (expensive!!!)

At worst you could have a dodgy solanoid in the auto box (this is what happened to mine) and that'll eventually put the car into "limp" mode - meaning no reverse gear and gears 1-3 only with max speed of around 54 mph (usually accompanied by flashing engine management warning light in amber). This set me back almost a grand to strip out the auto box and refurb it. The car has never been the same since either - it's ok but slower to change gear than ever before.
If the gearbox has a fault I would recommend ditching the car - it isn't worth fixing as the cost is roughly equal to the value of the car if it has a low mileage. If the mileage is above 100,000 you'd be lucky to get 1000 quid for the motor in the first place.

Hi, I have a Mercedes A170CDi Auto that has gone into limp-mode on the gearbox. I have had a diagnostics check done and it shows a P1841 Current fault code which is a Solenoid Valve Y3/7y2 3 shift fault....

The code is consistent with an electrical short within the shift motor solenoid. These solenoids open and close fluid passageways within the gearbox that cause clutches engage and disengage with the planetary gear system that make up an automatic gear box. Auto boxes are very involved pieces of machinery and best left to experts so I am afraid it needs a trip to the Mercedes dealership or a good auto transmission depot. It could be that the gear box can be easily renovated by fitting a new solenoid in which case an overhaul rather than replacement will be the cheaper option. Since you have the code for the fault I would phone around for repair quotes.

My gearbox is stuck in 2nd gear even if you put it into 3 or L & engine light is stuck on & cant remove it?

the pcm prolly has picked up a problem with the transaxle, pcm puts the transaxle in "limp mode" which will keep it n 2nd or 3rd depending on the programing try checking the codes to see if it has speed sensor or solonoid failure codes. clear them, n c how long it takes to come back

Limp mode on chrysler grand voyager 3.3 le auto. can still drive but not above 50mph,how do i fix or can i

If it's in limp mode, the check engine light is on steady, or blinking, or a combination of the two. You need to have trouble codes read, most parts stores offer this as a free service. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the vans diagnostic port under the dash, and 'read' codes stored in the computer. They can explain what they mean, and make recommendations on what to do to fix it. If you have any questions after that, post them here with the code #'s.

Gear box for ed sedan

If the actual gear stick is hard to move you will find the linkages are stuck on something, if it moves freely and still doesnt change theres two things it could be, first is motor was incorrectly installed or second is the gearbox has gone into limp mode, limp mode is a factory set mode that keeps the car in 3rd gear for a 3 speed or 4th in a 4 speed, in the ba's i had this problem with my car, limp mode is only a safety measure to get you home and should be looked at immediatley.
