I HAVE FOUND THE FOLLOWING INFO, U MAY HAVE ONE OR BOTH OF THE PROBLEMS BELOW, THERE IS NO SPECIFIC FIX, THE ELECTRICAL HARNESS TO THE TRANSMISSION IS DEFECTIVE OR THE THE SOLENOID WIRING INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION IS SHORTED, AT THIS POINT YOU REALLY NEED THIS HOOKED UP TO A FACTORY BREAKOUT BOX TO "PIN OUT" EACH WIRE IN THE HARNESS, IF THE HARNESS IS SHORTED OR DAMAGED U MAY RUIN THE NEW CONTROL MODULE, I SUGGEST U GET THE DEALER INVOLVED IN THIS, WITH THIS MANY CODES IT IS REALLY HARD TO PIN DOWN A USABLE ANSWER FOR THE REPAIR PROCEDURE.

1993 hyundai sonata has check engine light on and is stuck in limp mode and wont shift out of second gear


the .pcm puts it in limp mode and it will stay in mode until light is turned off. You need to get the trouble code, repair it, erase the codes (with a scanner that retrieves the codes), and then you will be out of limp home mode.

1998 VW Beetle 5-speed trouble getting it in to reverse


I have a 1998 VW Beetle and when I first bought it, (used) shifting into first was the same action for shifting into reverse. They were so close I usually went into first when trying for reverse. I took it to a transmission shop and they replaced part of the shift linkage that is famous for wearing. It cost me maybe $60.00. Now she shifts like a new car.

I have a 1998 vw beetle i want to know what does the tcm do in my car


TCM stands for Transmission Control Module.
It is a firmware programed device designed to control the shift points of your VW's automatic transmission. It is also responsible for safeguarding the transmission against abuse or other damaging problems from the operator as well as the engine. For instance, if you were driving down the interstate and accidentally bumped the shifter into reverse. the TCM would "see" that you are traveling at a high rate of speed and reverse was selected but nothing would happen. Or, your engine is misfiring, the TCM may only allow certain gears to be used to avoid you stalling in the road.
When a TCM malfunctions your car may not shift into overdrive, or in worse cases may not shift at all causing you to have to shift the transmission manually.
Most late model automatic cars have a TCM.
