Inspect the engine wiring harness and transmission wiring harness especially where the harness runs and connects to the transmission itself.If any issues are found with the wiring or connections this will need to be repaired to resolve this fault here.If this is or has already been checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue from here. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete

Vehicle seems like to be in limp mode. After replacing valve body and tcm is there a relearn procedure that shou be done?
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 1 year ago.
There is a procedure called deleting the cvt fluid deterioration rate that needs done with the dealers consult scan tool and if this is not done this may cause some issues here.This is like a reset.I would have a dealer check and perform this with their consult tool as well as check for any programming that may need done.
