Transmission Problem - Conductor plate
I posted a brief on this in the G section, but since the trans is universal among many many models, I wanted to seek a wider audience..
Hey guys, my new (to me) 02 g500 gave me an acceleration problem the other day. It took about 1 minute to make it to 45mph. It didn't throw any fault codes or give me any other problems for a 300 mile interstate ride home. Upon arrival, at slow speeds it did it again and threw a Throttle Position Sensor code... Then a window fell.
I went to the local dealership today to order a tps and have them install a bad window regulator. After about an hour and 800 dollars, they informed me that I have a transmission problem. I told them I already knew about the TPS and I would be installing it myself. The service manager insisted I had a trans problem that was unrelated. Knowing that dealers are pretty unfamiliar with this car, I didnt argue and I told them I would get back to them after I installed the sensor and let them know.
Then, on my ride home I went to get on the longest bridge in the world (25 miles with no shoulder in rush hour traffic)- lake pontchartrain causeway. The G accelerated to 25 mph and refused to up shift... It was turning 5k rpms just to move slowly. I tried knocking it up a gear and it refused. I tried turning it off in neutral, then back on, then shifting in D.. still wouldnt shift. After 5 miles, I made it to the crossover and parked it. I let the tranny cool for 10 minutes and turned the other way (no traffic) to get back to the main land. As soon as I did this, it drove fine. I made another U turn and came home with no issues.
The dealer gave me this information today- the code is p2122 fault: The CAN signal from control module N15/3 (ETC[EGS] control unit) is faulty.
