HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, the most common cause of limp in mode with no speedo is a faulty transmission input or output speed sensor. If you have a scan tool with live data feed, you can test drive with it hooked up and see which signal is missing - the input or output speed sensor and replace the one that is missing signal
