Question about 2004 Dodge Intrepid
Transmission wont shift to 3rd gear. yes the check engine is on
how do I delete or fix the "limp in" mode? I own a 2004 intrepid with 92,000 miles. runs fine until eng and trans get to operating temps. That when it goes into limp mode. Diconnecting battery cable resets the PCM and reoccurs within 2-3 miles at hiway speeds. The trans shifts fine and there is no noticeable rpm fluctuations. Have removed sensor plug ins and cleaned with electrcal contact cleaner. Removed and replugged the PCM plug ins. Looks like they have a silicon grease so did not spray them. This problem seems to correlate with the operating temperature of the engine. Tans ATF has good color and shifts smoothly prior to limp mode. Is the software of the PCM reliant on ECM monitoring info? Can O2 sensors, mass air flow, egr, cam sensors or crank position sensors faultor and send into limp mode or is it soley the trans data from input output sensors. If trans sensors bad why is it temp sensitive does the trans have internal trans temp sending unit? I can understand that if it does have trans temp sending unit that it might be at a threshold that the PCM evaluates since winter does occur and cold weather and hydraulics sometime don't cooperate until warmed to operating temperature...
Check for switch batt volts on a scaner could be sol pack or tcm. also look at input and output speed sensors
