Stuck in Limp Mode After Power Outage

2004 Titan - Turned my engine off and my trailer brake control clicked and flashed. It seemed like an electrical issue so I went to start it and there was absolutely no power. My battery had been groaning a bit on start prior to this. Jumped the battery and two hours later it started fine so I drove home from work. No pick up - obviously the truck was stuck in 3rd gear with no pick after a full stop. I replaced the battery and the truck starts better than ever. However, I'm still unable to get it out of fail safe mode. Any help is appreciated. No codes are showing up either.

Unhook the negative cable overnight, and then see what happens.

Unhooked battery overnight. No change. What's strange is the truck runs great once you get speed up - even at highway speeds. No codes. No apparent electrical issues. Small hole in muffler. Could this be a factor?

Re: Stuck in Limp Mode After Power Outage

If you mean not all the gears are avail,(still stuck in third?) then the Trans is being sent 'limit' instructions from the ECU.....that may indicate a re-flash or replacement is needed.

If by limp mode, you mean limited to 2500RPM, check the MAF against the service manual spec using a multimeter. I'm aware of situations where a MAF was malfunctioning without setting codes.

For the future, pull the trailer brake controller and set in the glove box when not towing. It's throwing current with no where to terminate every time you brake...even when putting the trans into park, and who knows what that does if you have bad ground somewhere, or an eddy current builds in your electrics and zap....something fries. It's a straight twelve volt in and out. Sensors, and the internals of the ECU's are running on mostly less than twelve volts(3-5 volts usually) at the circuit board or component part.
