limp mode is when u put to much stress on the engine or tranny, the computer shuts down only allowing the car to drive in first gear. it wont shift any higher allowing u to drive the car at a safe speed to get in for service. it does this as a precatution that u dont cause any more damage. its in the manual. my charger went into limp mode once when i was doing about 60 braked really hard and made a very sharp left turn. the thing is i almost missed my turn and tried to make it therefore putting alot of stress on the engine. i parked the car then came back but it would not start. eventually it did but it would not come out of first gear.

Hello all. I am (Larry) aka IfSheComesChargHer. Thanks steve for asking the question. I dropped the car off today after I moved the mess the guy did with my alarm. I will let you know what they find this afternoon. Thanks for caring enough to ask.

wtf

i cant see how you can be driving the car and put it to bed [like larry did] and then come out and it's in the limp mode thats why i asked the question-who ever has had their car go in to the limp mode what were you doing to cause it-reason is i beat on my charger and have had no problems at all and i brake hard and whip corners like i own the roads around here.

Ok I got my car back and The alarm guy shorted out my FCU. The repaced it and everything is fine. I sound have never let a store like So.,dAdvi.. work on my car.The limp mode is a Protection Mode that let you get home. It turn on the fan and let the car only reach 3000 rpm in 1st gear.It did that because the computer could not talk to the FCU. (I believe that means Forward Control Unit). My door locks Horn and Trunk unlock would not work. Just want to let you all know what happened . Thanks Steve
