Towing procedure

Towing is only permitted travelling forwards, at a maximum speed of 80 km/h and for up 80 km. The gear selector lever must be in Neutral

CAUTION: The vehicle must never be towed backwards under any circumstances.

Reset adaptation data

Adaptation values are stored in the software of the TCM:

  • Adaptation should be reset after an internal component has been exchanged or the whole transmission has been changed.

The adaptation of the transmission is reset via IDS.

Limp home mode

The TCM software contains functions which take control of the transmission if serious faults occur.

The fault characteristic decides which strategies are to be used.

The vehicle remains capable of restricted operation.

The TCM strategy differentiates between four emergency modes adapted to the fault situation

The TCM strategy differentiates between four emergency modes adapted to the fault situation

Different measures are implemented, depending on the current gear position and driving situation when the fault occurs:

  • When a fault occurs, the TCM makes it possible for the vehicle to maintain restricted operation.

    The distance travelled should be kept as short as possible.

  • Torque limitation is activated in order to protect the transaxle components.
  • When the engine is restarted (ignition switched off for approx. 15 seconds), the transaxle is no longer in limp home mode. There is no longer a fault indication on the instrument cluster, and the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) is off.

    However, the fault remains stored in the TCM.

    If the fault is still present, limp home mode is reactivated.

  • If limp home mode is reactivated after the ignition is switched on, the option exists in select-shift mode to pull away in 2nd gear. This is the case unless the transaxle is in emergency mode 4. Only 4th gear and the reverse gear are available in this mode.
