    I have a 2005 Ford F250, I was driving along and the trans locked up, put codes on the computer and also the tow haul light is blinking, and then has completely NO power, like its stuck in 3rd gear. Anyone ever have this happen and what was the conclusion. I changed the rear fluid because I though maybe it was going, but there was no metal.

    Limp mode for some reason? We would need codes to help.

    If it's in limp home mode, a simple battery disconnect for a half hour could solve it. Really need to know the codes though. Never hurts to try disconnecting the battery though! Cheap n easy.
