The transmission has gone into safe mode. This means that something is wrong, most likely the shift solenoid. I had the same model van do the same thing. It's not a terribly expensive item to have fixed.

Check the fluid to see how the level is being maintained once the van has been running for about 20 minutes. Keep it running, put it in park with the parking brake on and check the level. If it's okay, then it is probably the shift solenoid. Good luck

I have a 2009 GMC Acadia. What should the ERS mode be in on a normal basis?


Driver Shift Control (DSC) or Electronic Range Selection (ERS): This position (M-Manual / L-Low) allows the driver to utilize the DSC/ERS system. When the shift selector lever is moved to this position, the driver may select upshifts or downshifts by using the paddle switches located on the steering wheel/shifter. An upshift is requested by pushing either + button. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for more specific DSC/ERS information.
Driver Shift Control (DSC)/Electronic Range Selection (ERS)
Refer to the owner's manual for specific instructions on DSC. The TCM will override shift commands when maximum engine speed is achieved and will protect from any downshift which may cause excessive engine RPMs.

Electronic Range Select (ERS) Mode
ERS mode allows you to choose the top-gear limit of the transmission and the vehicle's speed while driving down hill or towing a trailer. The vehicle has an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. When using the ERS Mode a number will display next to the L, indicating the current gear that has been selected.
To use this feature:
Move the shift lever to L (Low).
Press the plus/minus button located on the shift lever, to increase or decrease the gear range available.
When you shift from D (Drive) to L (Low), the transmission will shift to a pre-determined lower gear range. The highest gear available for this pre-determined range is displayed next to the L in the DIC. See Driver Information Center (DIC) and DIC Operation and Displays for more information. The number displayed in the DIC is the highest gear that the transmission will be allowed to operate in. This means that all gears below that number are available. For example, when 4 (Fourth) is shown next to the L, 1 (First) through 4 (Fourth) gears are automatically shifted by the vehicle. the transmission will not shift into 5 (Fifth) until the + (Plus) button is used or you shift back into D (Drive).
While in L (Low), the transmission will prevent shifting to a lower gear range if the engine speed is too high. You have a brief period of time to slow the vehicle. If vehicle speed is not reduced within the time allowed, the lower gear range shift will not be completed. You must further slow the vehicle, then press the - (Minus) button to the desired lower gear range.
Automatic Engine Grade braking is not available when the ERS is active. It is available in D (Drive) for both normal and Tow/Haul mode. While using the ERS, cruise control and the tow/haul mode can be used. See Tow/Haul Mode for more information.

Gear lever moves up and down only - can select neutral and third only


gear change cable has either come loose or broke one or the other and you can only buy the cables as a pair and around 200euro mark ,not difficult to change but dealer only part so expensive although all the cables used on these cars are actually made in england around basingstoke area if i remember rightly ,best advice is to ask a local mechanic to have a look to confirm my diagnosis

check linkage on top of transmission and make sure it moves while engaging shift lever. You may have also left a light on while doing work on van, check all interior lights that may still be on.

This sounds like the linkage that connects the shifter to the transmission has come apart or broken. Have a good look at this less expensive fix before you pin it on that very expensive transmission. Hope this helps. Good luck.

1997 pontiac sunfire manual transmission won't shift out of gear.


What you can try is to remove the shift cables from the transmission side. then move the shifter and see if everything is free if it's still sticks then the cables are going to be replaced. if everything is moving with the cable off. then you need to remove the shift tower on the tranny (where the shift cable is I belive it's 5 bolts) remove the tower and you will see the shift pin. Inside the tower there is a cotter pin that breaks and that will cause you to have one gear and unable to selected another gear. If you are not mech inclined I would no attemped the shift tower repaire, the cables do it will save you money. The shift tower has bushings that can fall into the tranny.

When my 95 Dodge Neon (automatic transmission) is really heated up and I slow to about 40 mph, the transmission downshifts to its second gear and stays there. I stop the car, run the shift lever through...


You need to free up your throttle pressure control cable linkage that sits above your shift cable linkage at the top of your transaxle on drivers side. I had the same problem from time to time, caused it to stay in lower gear longer, and shift down hard when slowing down. Happened more when I drove it a little harder as pushing gas pedal further down causes it to rotate, but then sticks & doesn't come back right a way. Free it up with penetrating lube first, then put a good coat of spray grease like white lithium after its moving freely again, and it should be problem free for a while. You may have to move some things to get at it. If you need a picture email (motor@mountaincable.net), seeing how I can't seem to figure out how to send it from here.
