my tranny went into limp mode and wont come..Check trans light comes

Customer Question

My tranny went into limp mode and wont come out. I changed fluid and filter and it still wont come out. Check trans light comes on but no codes to go with it? Three days before the tranny went into limp mode, i had a new motor put in. Is it the PCM like the manual says? Or is it interrelated with the motor?

Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.

The car goes into limp mode as soon as the PCM detects a fault. Now, there may not be any codes stored yet. However codes will show up you just have to drive the car. The car will remain in limp mode until the code is fixed.
