2016 altima. Limp mode after transmission replacement

10

Asked by Kdub6289 Jan 05, 2020 at 04:42 PM about the 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Trans went out at 95kmi (not terribly surprising) I sourced a used unit with 32k
miles on it from a theft recovery vehicle. Replaced the trans and torque
converter with the low mileage units. Got everything back together and I believe
the car is in limp mode. In drive, It will drive up to 10mph then not go past that,
in reverse it will go no matter the speed. Anything I'm missing?

I still haven't found the solution. Nissan told me I bought a bad trans but I think they are scammers. Basically you have to go to nissan and have then download a file on to your tcm to match new valve body
