Did you use ATF+4 fluid????

Check the wiring connection at the solenoid pack for moisture, tranny fluid or looseness. Also take the connector off the TCM and check for corrision.

Do a search using limp mode and you may find some more tips.

My EATX relay went south on me one time back. Transmission went into limp mode. I took it to a WELL KNOWN auto transmission shop & it took them a hole day to tell me it was an "electrical problem". They wanted to keep it another day so that they could determine what was wrong. I decided to take it home.

At the house I realized I did not her the usual noises from the solenoid pack when I shifted it into gear. I swapped the relay with the fuel pump relay & it would BARELY idle. I went to the auto parts store & purchased a new relay, about $7.00. Was back to normal!

The ATX relay was defective, When I swapped it with the fuel pump relay it was not getting enough voltage to the fuel pump.

Looking at TRNW page:
http://www.trnw.net/tour-fixdata1.php#1

The one entry there says the EATX relay is the problem.:2cents:

this is not a fluid, or mechanical issue it is an electrical issue

No matter what is causing his problem, he certainly needs to get whatever wrong fluid was used out of there and replace with atf+4 (or +3, if there is any available.) Anything but either of those fluids will kill the tranny for sure, if it isn't already.

Peter, You raise a good point. I only use dealer transmission and P.S. fluids in my cars. I've been burnt in the past and so it's worth a little extra money for peace of mind. Only exception, was that when I flushed my vovlo's tranny, I uses mobel 1 synch. stuff. That's because the dealer said it was better.

Best Regards,
Stan
