When one limps for it's protection (yes) the TCM normally comands third gear .... Which means that's the only gear you got 0 to 98 .... So when and if it happens start off slowly and don't bother driving to fast .... Also NO reverse so don't dead head into a spot ,or your pushing ....

To reset : Stop in a safe area ..... Shut truck off let it set for a few minutes 5/10 .... Restart, MIL will still be shining but you'll be moving full gear selection .... The Mill will exstinguish after so many ignition cycles ....

Now I have a question ,how did you limp your tranny ....??

Limped mine for the first time every, the other day.


I was in level 5 on my Hot Juice/Attitude on a two lane hiway. Pulled out to pass; it kicked down into third and ran like a stripped a$$ ape up through fourth and into fifth.


At about 95 mph it zinged the tranny and immediately settled into fourth gear. I nursed it to the next crossroads where I pulled over, shut the truck off and almost immediately restarted the engine.


All was well, again. Scared me for a minute before I realized what was going on. I'm sure glad I read about zinging the tranny here first and knew what to do.


Needless to say, I didn't get back into it again real soon afterward. I pulled the SES codes off of it yesterday. I counted six codes in all.
