Hi....
if your car get a VSS code the Transmission control module.
Will command the Trans, in LIMP MODE.
Is mean you only will have 2 gear.
If you replaced the VSS sensor allready.
Maybe you have A electrical problem.
The First step is Check the condition of the VSS connector.
Remove the Connector and pull the wires a little each by each one.
To see if is broken inside of the Plastic cover.
IF you can
GIVE ME the Code number I will help you better.
Because is there more that One speed sensor on your trans..
Check the grounds on the Intake manifold, Black wire one of the wires is for the speed sensor.
The RED/YELLOW wire coming from the INSTRUMENT CLUSTER,
Is mean you need to check the Fuses that work with the instrument cluster. FUSE # 12 10amp, And # 30 10amp.
Located at fuse block left side of dash.
Is there a ground that work with the Cluster and Combination Meter. Behind left side of dash Black wire.
Check the Connection of the Cluster.

OK.. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

Can a bad knock sensor cause a tranny to go stay in 2nd gear(limp mode)on a 2008 dodge ram 3.7 liter.Got 2 codes a #2 knock sensor and tcm power low voltage


The transmission is in limp-in mode because of the second DTC - TCM (transmission control module) low voltage. The knock sensor code has nothing to do with that. You need to have the TCM and transmission checked out.

My engine light is on, my speedometer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't register, some times it bounces back and forth.


code p 500 refers to vehicle speed sensor (VSS) --circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring---VSS sensor---ECM
the engine light reports serious faults with both the engine and the transmission
I would go to an accredited auto transmission shop and have the VSS replaced or checked
The VSS drives the speedo, cruise control,gear changes ( reports to the transmission control module (TCM)

Transmission


A/T tranny issues. (solenoid )
my auto tranny is slipping in call gears. forward and reverse?
there are no guessing, just tests.
check all fuses.
check AFT levels using the operators guide, (dont guess at ways, do it right way, as 99% dont)
so DRIVE is stuck in 1st gear, or 2nd?
the connect the jumper for the TCM, and get the flash codes.
if it says VSS is dead, then it is.
why wonder this. the TCm will not lie, it will see any bad VSS signals and report them on all cars made. but has flash codes this year.
there are 3 or 4 paths here

1; inputs to TCM wrong, sure it will shift wrong. how could it not.
2: TCM bad , it has good inputs and its outputs are wrong.
3: the TCM to tranny connections are bad, (corrosion)
4: the Solenoids have the correct inputs but fail to work.
bad solenoids or far far worse.
note the order here.. only this works unless guessing with $1500 fist of dollars is ok.

the FSM covers each tests. from 1 to 4.
for on car tests. if the solenoid tests pass its a bad tranny.

It sounds like the transmission is slipping and the sensor is just reporting this info and setting a code, you have made a common mistake. You likely need a transmission overhaul
