On some vehicles this is called limp home mode. It usually only occurs if there is a fault with the engine or trans. It does this to allow you to get home without doing to much more damage to either part. As to the cause on your vehicle I don't know sorry

Audi a4 1.8 automatic gear not engaging 1st 2nd or 4th. only drives in 3rd


It is in "limp" mode which limits the transmission to only 3rd gear. The transmission fluid level needs to be checked and the "basic settings" need to be reset in the Transmission Control Module.

Change the transmission fluid ant if that doesn't work then the transmission needs rebuilt or replaced. If you get on craigslist someone might be selling a transmission for cheap or check the salvage yards.

Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?


do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.
