The same thing happened in my 2001 Hyundai Sonata. I read many previous forums that stated transmission shops cannot find the problem and the ones that did spent alot of money to do it. I am more of a diy guy so i got a free diagnostic test done stating a shift speed sensor. i pulled off the air filter box to expose the top of the transmission and low and behold i found the plug in the center was corroded. I went to the parts store and they wanted about $50 for the new plug and being sceptical i just took some scrap wires and soldered new connectors inside the plug and hasnt had the problem now for a year.

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.

My 2001 jeep grand cherokee wont shift into 4th it only goes to third what would cause the 4th gear to not engage


There are several things that could cause that.
> Replacement transmission not equipped with overdrive
> Overdrive solenoid in replacement transmission defective
> Overdrive control circuits damaged or loose pins or connections.
> Gear shift linkage or cable out of adjustment
> Transmission range sensor malfunction or out of adjustment

Since you have a computer-controlled transmission, it would be better to ask the onboard computer that question....you will probably get a much more definitive answer.

How do turn off overdrive on a 2001 hyundai santa fe if its not on the gear stick?


Does your gearshift have four gear positions? If it does, then 4th gear is overdrive. To leave overdrive, simply shift to 3rd gear.

2001 kia optima v6 ... i think my speed sensor may be going out ... when driving it will only shift up tp 3rd gear sometimes 4th. However, when stopped at a light or sign it stays in third. After...


I think this car has a torque converter lock up. sometimes they freeze up when the the pcm makes 1:1 to the motor and transmission. this could be the shifting problem.

Down shifting


if you are going to fast and down shift of course its a grind maybe your suppose to be on 4th gear not third gear so that means you need to shift to 3rd.
