HI,

There is not a relay or a fuse for the transmission control system in your vehicle. When it is in limp in mode, then there is a fault in the system and will need to be scanned for fault codes. Possible causes include but not limited to one of the shift solenoids is faulty, faulty TCC solenoid, faulty control module, faulty torque converter clutch, restriction in the valve body

where do u recommend I start?
Expert:  Eric replied 8 months ago.

HI,

the first step is have the onboard computer scanned for stored fault codes for the transmission. This will tell you the area of concern. Without having this done, you are left with guessing and throwing parts at it until repaired
