Only thing to do is have it towed to a transmission shop. Hopefully your internal rad hasn't broke and let water into the box. Whatever you do don't drive it. Go luck and keep us up to date

Cheers mate but my daughter already stopped it and restarted it and everything worked as normal. I have heard that some cars do this as a safety precaution when something faults out and when you stop it it resets that fault. But what can the fault be????.
Cheers

If the speedo stopped working it can do this as well as limit at 3000 rpm.

The other cause could be a range selector sensor that would do the same thing.

Best you get it scanned so the you can see what the diagnostic trouble code was. We can do thi sif you are near us.

How did you go with this mate?

I had the same issue. Car working fine, D started flashing, stuck in 3rd. Turned off and then on then worked fine again.

Wondering what it could of been. Going to get Auto serviced again anyway. Mine is a 04 BA XR8 with the 4 speed auto.

Not sure mate it hasn't missed a beat since. I was waiting for it to happen again so I would just tow it to BPT to get checked but alas

Did you at least do a fault code scan?

Hi guys. I have Ford Territory 04 ,four speed auto and dual fuel. When I turn the key, it makes three long beeps, I canīt figure out what is it about. No warning lights come on, seat belt is on, got enough fuel and doors are closed. At first I didnīt bother me, but few days ago when I took it to the city it suddenly went to the limp mode and D started flashing. My mate checked for error codes but didnīt find any. It takes about 20 minutes drive with cold engine, before it make a clunk sound and D starts flashing again. Checked my battery and It showed itīs fine. Although itīs about 3.5 years old. I really hope itīs not a transmission, it seems to be shifting gears fine. Anyone has any ideas what else to check or what might cause it. Thank you.

Id change battery. They are finicky things.
3.5 years is a good stint for a battery

Just had my battery checked by Battery world, and seems to be all good with it.
Anything else what might trigger limp mode without any warning lights?
Thanks.

I had the hose to the pcv fail which gave a large vacuum leak. Caused the tranny to go into limp mode a couple of times before I fixed it. After that it was all good again.

Default Territory fixed.

Today I gave up and went to mechanic. They hooked car up with more powerful computer and found out it was solenoid E what was causing the limp mode. Cost me $580, new solenoid, filter and oil. Now everything works good and itīs good to be back on the road again.
