RE: Limp Mode
WOW... just went to checker and used an OBDII scan tool there. there were a total of 2 errors...
P0700 Transmission Control System (MIL Request)
P0740 Torque Converter Clutch solenoid circuit
There was also some freeze frame data for the P0740 Code:
Engine Coolant Temp: -40 degrees F
Vehicle Speed 57 MPH
It only went into limp mode when i had been cruising for a couple minutes. My friend thinks that with it being as cold as it was, the torque converter wouldn't lock up when i started to cruise so the car went into limp mode.
As far as the -40 degree engine coolant temp goes, we think that the car didn't actually capture a reading to store so it just assigned the lowest possible value the system thinks that field could be, -40.
As for the P0700 code, since the torque converter wouldn't lock up, the TCS started freaking out so it threw out that code.
Any ideas, thoughts, anything? Thanks!
