It is going into "limp" also called "limp-in" mode. It is a default mode the computer places the transmission goes into when it detects certain errors. In this mode you should also have a Service Engine Soon (or Check Engine) light illuminated on the instrument panel. This light tells you that the computer has logged an error code(s). Autozone will attach a code reader and pull the codes for you at no charge. Have this done and post the codes back here for further assistance.

98 voyager 3.3 auto trans wont chande gears --seems to be staying in second gear --- hard to move from standstill --- engine temp light came on --- once transmission cools down it works ok til gets h


If you have been driving it, with it over heating as well as
low on fluid your pretty much done & will need a rebuild

If you just drove 10 miles-- then possibly you could have it
diagnosed & find a less costly solution- such as bad solenoids,
but I doubt it

97 chrysler town & country dies while driving will only start when in park, runs fine but dies without warning and will restart in park???


Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!

Check the universal joints in the drive shaft to rear axel. 120,000 miles, its time for replacement. Safety hazard exist, check soon. Also transmission filter should have been serviced at 60,000 miles. Its time.

I have a 2001 town and country. yesterday i went to put it into park and it sounded like a clunk. Like it shifted really hard and now my transmission is stuck in 2nd gear. I took the negative batterey...


This is called the limp mode. It means that you have a transmission problem. It goes into limp mode to protect the transmission from total failure. You need to take it to a transmission shop to perform a diagnosic test to see if it needs repair or replace

I cannot start my 1997 chrysler town & country minivan. When I try to start it I get a "alarm set" reading. It starts for a minute then cuts off. HELP. I AM STRANDED.


I have a 97 Chrysler Town & Country Van with 104000 miles on it. The past two months the van will not start and run after driving for a while. Let it set for about an hour and it will start and run fine. When it does not want to run it will start and run for about 5 seconds then quit. During this time the dash instruments will not display but the radio, windows, and lights work just fine. The battery was replaced with in the past month so I don' t think that is the problem. Any seggestions?
