Kia Carens: Automatic Transaxle System / Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting
Limp Home Mode
Features a fail-safe function that prevents dangerous situations in the event of a transaxle failure. The vehicle will be driven in limp home mode if the transaxle malfunctions. In this mode, the transaxle operates at a minimal functionality level (fixed shifting, limited shifting, reverse, neutral), making it possible for the vehicle to reach a service center.
  
Limp Home Mode: Limited shifting
Mechanical limp home mode: Fixed shifting (failure as mechanical parts, solenoid valves, TCM, CAN communication)
