P1723 A/t control relay - Stuck on.

Loss of power. Won't go faster than 80 k's/hr. Rev's fine and turbo is sucking air from outside fine. Motor has only done 150000 kms incl. the turbo. Problem started all of a sudden.


Seems like you getting Safe mode.Meaning that the cars computer (ECU) has detected a fault from one of your sensors.Try disconnecting the plug to your MAF air flow sensor.If car is ok,then its the MAF.
But still have the car diagnosed ..and its under warranty anyway.

My 1998 beetle is stuck in 3rd gear. the engine and coolant light is on any suggestions?


This just happened to me. I drove the beetle in the snow and slid up to a stop sign. The slide engaged the anti-lock brakes. After that, the car was sluggish starting out and would not shift into 4th gear.
Turns out, the transmission was stuck in 3rd gear. If you can believe it, this is by design! It's a fail safe mode that gets triggered by the wheels spinning out of sync.
According to my mechanic there are wheel speed sensors on each wheel. If the computer senses the wheels moving at different speeds it will drop into fail safe mode. This requires a special scan tool to clear the codes.
Once the codes were cleared, ran like new.

1991 bmw 520i transmission goes into 'safe' mode


quoted from BMWE34.network
" Transmission locks in "limp" mode - 3rd gear so you can "limp" home or to your nearest dealer."

"Things to check before even contemplating a transmission overhaul:
Check electrics - Alternator and battery.
Replace DME Relay and Fuel Pump Relay - not expensive.
Remove disassemble, clean and reassemble gear selector switch - If it looks beyond saving, replace ($200)
Service the transmission ($130 from a specialist) and check/replace transmission speed sensor ($90)"
