    2003 Toyota Avalon was recently lifted and towed from the rear wheels for approx. 6 miles at highway speeds. Now the transmission will not go into 1st or 2nd gear even if manually shifted. Could it be in Limp mode? If so, how can it be cleared. The engine light is not on. Thanks for the help.

    Need a replacement transmission? Quality transmissions are hard to find. Free estimate to your email.



    Could you clear up something from me, was the Avalon towed with the front end lifted and running on the rear wheels or was the rear end lifted and was it towed with the front wheels down? Also, was the transmission left in gear when you did the tow? Please let me know as it could make all the difference in the world.

    And to give you a quick answer, it does sound like limp-home mode.

    Let me know the details if you could as it will help me get the right information.
