I had a cylinder 1 misfire code that was resolved by replacing plugs (used ngk's) and replaced the ignition wire that had dry (heat) rotted plug ends . Right before this was fixed the car started not shifting up past 2nd gear and the O/D dash light and shifter button quit working , I googled the symptoms and it seemed to resemble that it had put itself into safe mode (I assumed from misfire issue ? ) Anyhow I disconnected battery to reset comp and car is still having same transmission issue ? Could it still be in limp mode and if so any idea on how to reset it ? Or is it the "shift solenoid A" code that would be the problem and if so why would it affect the O/D light and button as described or could it be something like the RAM software upgrade that I have read about ? I feel it would be more of an electrical issue like a short or bad ground or something as the light will go on and off if let to idle in park long enough ?? Any and all advice here is welcomed ,I need to resolve this and trying not to take to tranny shop to get hosed ? Thanks Everyone !!
