SOURCE: limp home mode

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

Does the speedometer work? If no, then it sounds like the output shaft speed sensor. If yes then it might be the input shaft speed sensor.

SOURCE: xr6 going into limp home mode when car is turned

theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you

SOURCE: limp home mode .I remember

Limp mode is activated by the ECM because it has detected a fault and it's trying to protect the transmission from further damage. You should take the car to have the transmission fixed ASAP,  and in no circumstance you should try to circumvent the protections on the car, they are there to save you money and grief.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt in "limp home mode" code 606

P0606 indicates Control module internal performance. GM is indicating of the replacement ECM. Once replacement is completed reprogramming the ecm is necessary. Locally a few auot parts stores can reflash the ECM.May want to check with a NAPA or Carquest for this otherwise dealer is probably the only option.

  • Using a scan tool, retrieve the percentage of remaining engine oil. Record the remaining engine oil life.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnection and Connection in Engine Electrical.

  • Disconnect the small engine control module (ECM) harness connector (3) from the ECM.
  • Remove the bolt retaining the large ECM connector to the ECM.
  • Disconnect the large ECM harness connector (4) from the ECM.

    Notice: Control module damage may result when the metal case contacts battery voltage. DO NOT contact the control module metal case with battery voltage when servicing a control module, using battery booster cables or when charging the vehicles battery.
  • Use the retaining tab to release the ECM from the underhood junction block bracket.

  • Reverse process for installation

    It means the computer noticed something wrong or lost contact with an important sensor that could ruin the engine or transmission and has de-rated the power so you can get home without the car stopping or damaging itself.

    When I accelerate hard to pass my check engine light comes on and the vehicle goes into limp home mode.


    Get the vehicle looked at by a garage. The reason it goes into limp home mode is to protect the engine from further damage. The reason the check engine light comes on is because the engine needs checking with some urgency.

    What is limp mode?


    Hi, limp mode or (limp-in mode or limp-home mode)occurs when your computer in your car is not communicating with the sensors on your engine. On some cars(volkswagon Passat for example) If you disconnect the battery then the computer will lose all of the settings and will go into limp-in mode.
    The car will have little power and a top speed of only about 30 miles per hour.
    The function of limp-in mode is to get you to a place that can repair the car but the car is barely drivable.

    2002 Impala: transmission limp mode...


    Most transmissions have a limp mode, or limp-home mode.
    If the driveline computer thinks there is something wrong, it can lock the transmission into one gear, such as 2nd gear. Usually reverse will also be available. The Impala automatic has 4 speeds. 2nd speed or gear will get you home, but the engine rpms can get a little high. I wouldn't get on the expressway will in limp mode.
    Before taking to the shop, you might want to try and reset limp mode by turning the car off for a couple minutes, or you may have to disconnect and reconnect the battery.
