Q: car in limp mode will not shift out of 2nd gear

asked by on

same as above

My car has 111011 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

When a vehicle enters limp mode, it’s due to a mechanical fault discovered inside the transmission or other driveline components. The only way to have this problem resolved is to have a professional mechanic complete a check engine light inspection so they can download any error codes stored in the ECU that may have triggered the limp mode. Once this is discovered, the service can be completed, and limp mode reset.
