2002 dodge transmission stuck in limp mode

Well you either have a shorted component or a shorted wiring harness. Buy a factory wiring diagram booklet and follow the circuit, start disconnecting components in the system until the short goes away. If everything that the fuse powers is disconnected and the fuse still blows then you have a shorted wiring harness, look for areas where there is allot of movement or heat from the engine exhaust. You can try this site for a wiring diagram, it may have one.

2004 XC70 has been off the road over two years. Put a new battery in it, ran fine for a couple of days, then threw code p2111 throttle sensor stuck and rough idle also known is limp mode. Erase code and it...

You might find that the throttle sensor which is electronic and part of the accelerator pedal has become unresponsive due to lack of use.i had this problem with a ford maverick which had been sat idle for a few months. And this caused the engine management light to come on and throw into limp cure was to press the pedal up and down quite hard with the engine switched off.also did this to the clutch pedal.cured the problem but every so often for the first year of regular use it would I just pumped the pedal fully up and down whilst engine was more limp modes.

UndEngine light is on and ve holden omega goes into saftey mode when you put your foot down on the exalirater

With engine off tap the accelerator pedal several times on and off quite hard , this will free up the electronic mechanism that controls the amount of fuel going to the engine.Now start car ,your engine management light(usually yellow) should go out and the limp mode of car will switch off and resume normal driving.If still in limp mode will need error codes deleting from ecu by garage.

How do I reset limp mode on 100 series toyota landcruiser petrol?

d/c battery for a spell. then reconnect it and stat up without touching the accelerator pedal. Let it idle and warm up and then drive it normally. If no help then consult check engine codes to see what caused it to go into limp mode.

2001 pt cruiser stuck in 2nd gear and will only go 60kms

Sure will happen,second gear is the "limp " mode if the Tcm sees a problem with the tranny. Key on,off ,on,off,on will flash the codes with the check engine light. That will point you in the right direction.
Can't recall how to reset the limp mode,thinking it's key on engine off ,press gas to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. If a speed sensor goes bad they will do just that,many other problems will also tho. So check for codes first,if there are none it will flash a 55 .That is five flashes of the engine light then a pause then 5 more.
