crown vic speedometer/ transmission problem

40

Asked by Nov 19, 2014 at 09:56 AM about the 2004 Ford Crown Victoria

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2004 Crown Vic has problem that my mechanic is puzzled on.  The speedometer started jumping wildly....but not every time I drove it. Then the OD OFF light started flashing and the transmission went crazy.  I had to drive home in second....which worked fine.  No speedometer though.  It stayed at 0. My mechanic replaced the speed sensor but that did not fix the problem.  Any ideas?

stuck in 2nd gear is the tranny's limp mode. when your speedometer is reading different than your speed it usually means the tranny is slipping . it is slipping so it is turning faster than the drive shaft .
