Irratic engine power some times goes into a limp mode at35oo rpms what causes this


Has to do with the transmission. Can be wiring/plugs from the PCM to trans, wiring inside the trans, or a solenoids inside the trans is shorting out. Have the codes read. Check the trans fluid also. When it gets low, it can cause a pressure code. This will throw it into limp mode.

I gotr a 98- 4L60E trans in limp mode & want to bypass neutral saftey switch. Can you help?


Bypassing the neutral safety switch won't help with the transmission problem. That switch is only wired into the start circuit.
Scan the computer for trouble codes. Has to be a code if it is in limp-in mode.

Trans stuck in limp mode i'm getting a p1751 code


P 1751 Shift Solenoid" A" performance. The solenoid is part of the transmission valve body and yes if this solenoid fails you will get limp mode.The only solution is a new solenoid may be even the wires to it or even the transmission module

Can a bad o2 sensor (or fuel mixture) cause my passat to go into limp mode? P1196 (o2 sensor 1 bank 1) and P1813 solenoid 1 electrical transmission) are the codes I get. the car runs fine but the turbo...


check the spark plugs and wires. the turbo motors have an aluminum head that expands and contracts too quickly and cracks the ceramic insulator on the plugs causing the engine to run irratically when it starts making boost and drops into a safe mode. also throws the trans code.

Transmision starts out in 1st shifts to 2nd then third but will not shift into overdrive , but once it reaches 3rd gear ,it stays there when you come to a stop . after that it will only shift manually...


Sounds like your transmission is in limp mode. This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

The other from what you described, trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Thank you for using fixya and have your Safari scanned for the DTC codes that would indicate what issues your transmission is having to put you in to limp mode.

My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode for the transmission. It is staying in second gear and will not shift higher. What could be the reason?


The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!

Replaced trans because i could not get out of limp mode i replaced sensors,relays,tcm,grounds and checked all wiring. now new trans is in limp if i reset it the trans shifts great once you restart it back...


This usually points to a sensor issue or a computer failure.

What diagnostics have been done with a diagnostic data scanner. If its in limp mode what codes did you have before and what codes do you have now. ??

And what year vehicle are we talking about here??
