LIMP Mode :(
I recently received a loaner top PRND bezel from a member here. I received it on Saturday and installed it on the same day.

I've been driving with it since then and this morning, Wednesday, it put my WK into LIMP mode. It's stuck in a gear but I'm not certain as to which one.

The bad thing is....I shipped my shifter to Bob the day before. Very bad timing.

I drove with this shifter for a few days to see if it was ok in which it was up until now.

The code I got is U0103.

I just PM'd Bob and told him I would pay for overnight shipping.

My question is how long will it be before I won't be able to drive it at all?

I already know what the problem is. I just want to know if I can cause anymore damage driving it like this.

Because its stuck in a certain gear, there is a very slight delay in cranking and putting it into gear gives a thump.

WTF! Would LIMP mode have any affect on my AC?

It's not blowing hot air.

Re: LIMP Mode :( turns out that the my AC controls I got back from Bob are rotating the shutters for the flow of air.

The air is stuck blowing in the footwells.

Damn!!! :motx:

Re: LIMP Mode :(
Busted shifter. Busted AC controls. 41 views. No advice.

Can I at least get help finding the info on how to. Clean the shifter. I'm still searching for it.

Really the only thing you can do change the shifted out.

Thanks Scott. Just got an email from Bob and he said he can overnight my shifter. Bob is a great guy.

Still trying to figure out this AC.

Not too worried about all of it. Still concerned though. The good thing is that I can still drive 35 mph at 3,000 rpms.

Re: LIMP Mode :(
Just noticed this will checking things out on the shifter. I don't have a T-Case switch so I don't know if it pertains to me but I'm going to fix it anyway. Glad I work in a shop where I can work on my Jeep.

Seems as if it was open prior to me installing it and somebody accidentally bent a terminal underneath.

I'm about to straighten it out now and see if it works.

Re: LIMP Mode :(
To prevent braking the terminal, it took the use of 2 needle nose pliers at the same time so my manager helped me.

Re: LIMP Mode :(
Nope. Didn't work. Still stuck in LIMP.

Re: LIMP Mode :(
Id say theres some broken welds on that board that would be impossible to repair

Bob from LXHarness is the best. That's all I have to say.
