2002 chrysler town and country wont leave limp mode

I have a 2002 town and country that one day decided to go into limp mode. Codes both 0700 and 1684 were showing up. I changed both the input and output shift speed sensors. Now just code 1684 is showing up. But still in limp mode! How frustrating! I took it to Autozone to have a free dianostic done to it after I replaced the two speed sensors and the only thing that showed up was Solenoid B. How do I get my van out of limp mode??? Somebody please help!!!

Try getting a new shift solenoid for it. i had the same problem on my 2002 chrysler town and country and my plymouth breeze which is also a dodge product. it is very simple to do and doesnt take all that long. the part will probably run you about 150 to 200 dollars but it should fix your problem.

P1694 means the battery has been disconnected in the last 50 starts. It could also show up perhaps if the battery is dying or providing low voltage. It can also indicate that the computer memory was cleared in the last 50 starts. Its typically just a status indicator and I would not expect it go into limp home mode unless there is a problem with the battery and its not able to supply the necessary power to engine components.

How to erase error codes

You might be able to disconnect the negative battery cable for a period of time?
Otherwise, the use of an OBD II, Scanner/Reader should be able to clear codes. Most Auto Parts stores will provide scan-read-clear services for free.

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.

96 chrysler town country wont shift into third gear

If it starts out in 2nd gear & dosn't shift, it is probably in a limp in mode. the system will need to be diagnosed & computer satisfied. sometimes disconnecting the battery will reset the computer & allow the trans to shift untill it sees the problem again. I recomend getting the codes read first so the memory will not be erased.

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what

The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!

Transmission is working but light came on

I recommend going toa transmission repair shop and having the TCU scanned for codes and repaired before the vehicle goes into the "limp home mode".
You only have third and reverse in this mode.

My chrysler 2002 town and country will not change gears. The RPMs stay at 2 or 3 when going 40 mph. What do I do?

I have the same vehicle, is your engine light on or flashing? Put your key in the ignition, turn back and forth 3 cycles of on off. End in the on position. If you have a 0700 code come up, your transmission is "done". Sounds like it is in "limp mode". Thats what happened to me. Had tranny overhauled, $1800.

My 1996 town and country wont shift..It was shifting but then would stop but if we pulled over and re started it it would shift fine again. But now it isnt shifting at all..We have a computer hooked for it...

we can here,
your van is going into "limp mode"
when the computer does not get a correct signal from transmission it will not shift because it doesn't know your speed or engine RPM,
Three sensors on the transmission will trip it into limp mode,
1= output sensor,
2=input sensor,
3=speed sensor,
if you have it checked and get a "P0000" type code
it will tell you which one

2002 Chrysler Town and Country limp mode

Hello, I have the same problem with my 2002 neon. I was told it was the solenoid pack. I purchased one on eBay (the garage want around $200) for $88. I also bought on eBay the input and output VSS(vehicle speed sensors) for $25 for both. Autozone has these sensors for $27 each. I am going to replace these parts in a day or so to see if it helps.I dont have a garage and its cold outside here in West Virginia. I have also been told to check the ground straps to make sure they are getting good connections. They are located at the starter. I will let you know how this turns out for me when I do the repairs. I have been reading many forums where others are having the same problems. If you have learned anything from your experience please let me know.
Thank you,Dave
