what gears do you get in limp mode
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Usually in limp mode you are limited to 1st and 2nd gear and this usually doesnt affect reverse.The cat. converter will cause running and shifting issues but if it is the catalytic converter the engine would rev up poorly or slowly or not at all in park or neutral so if it is revving up properly I suspect this is an internal electrical fault in the transmission with solenoids or sensor failures or a mechanical fault in it.I would have the transmission/gear box checked/tested further to see if it is faulty needing repaired internally or replaced.

This is usually best tested by a transmission/gear box repair facility or dealer as they will have the correct tools to test this here.
