Default Re: Tranny problem

Chrysler designed these automatic transmissions with this "limp mode" feature. Essentially, if the control module senses that something is wrong it will force the transmission to stay in second gear to avoid causing further damage (by shifting and/or driving at high speeds).

If you get the general transmission code P0700 (The presence of this code means the TCM detected a problem) take it to transmission repair shop that will give you the specific transmission codes for free.

We need to find out why it went into limp mode so post what the codes are and we can help you diagnose it better.
