You have a very bad COP Ignition Coil,that is spiking the PCM (computer)
The spike comes back on the TPS Sensor,then the PCM doesn't see the
throttle signal your foot sent thru, the pedal actuator (gas pedal) ,so it puts the
car into ETC Failsafe,and you can only go 6 mph.

If you got no ETC Failsafe, on the bottom right side of the dash, tell me what you do have
I need all the codes,if you have a MIL Lamp on ( the one that looks like a wrench)

    I am having a similiar problem with my '05 Lincoln LS. The only symbol that appears on my dash right before the car is about to turn off is the one that looks like a wrench. Can anyone help me?

    Any MIL Lamp (ford term) for OBD2 (1996 thru 2011 System)
    which is a (Wrench on a ford) requires that you put a code
    reader or professional scan tool on the under dash connector
    and check for codes
    The codes are used to continue on and diagnose and possible
    System malfuntion.
    Once check light issues are repaired,you can work on multiple
    issuses that don't set a dash light.

1996 Dodge stratus es automatic wont shift outta low gear .is this a sensor issue?


probably not if it is limp mode
the ECM puts the car in limp mode to prevent serious problems in the engine or transmission
could be no coolant, sump oil , transmission oil etc
run the fault codes and find the reason for the mode

Code 24 is a vehicle speed signal sensor fault, the sensor most likely does not provide a useable signal until about 25 MPH, when the computer doesn't see any signal after that speed it turns on the light. Make sense?
