My First Post!: Auto stays in 2nd gear. somtimes, help needed

Hi All, this is my first posting
I have a 1999 4 cyl Stratus Autoatic (rare car in Denmark). It's been fine until now.

Problem: 1 out of 10 times it's started, there's only 1st and 2nd gear. That continues until it's stopped and restarted, then sometimes it works fine again, sometimes not. It's been going on for weeks. It doesn't matter if the car is hot or cold, damp or dry. Chrysler dealer recommended a new sensor, the one on the left front of the gearbox. No change.

Any suggestions before I let the dealer make a fortune on me? Thanks

What your experiancing is somthing done by chrysler known to many of us as lmimp mode, take it to a dealer, you have ap roblem that the tranny computer is sensing that is what is causing it to not shift.

Thanks. I changed both input and output speed sensor, but it didn't help. Finally let the dealer ru diagnostics, Internal TCM Failure. New Transmission Computer, it has worked since...
