Recently purchased used '16 Ram 1500, now got 44K miles on it. Recently had the 8 speed transmission stick in third gear, limp mode is a term I've seen. Stayed stuck through two complete stops but after third complete stop, it downshifted and then ran normally. Dealer could find no error codes or recreate the issue. Got messages on the display saying "service transmission", "service shifter". Any advice for a new member of the forum?

If you still have those messages ..

You could drive to your local Autozone or similar auto parts chain store & request that they hook up their scan tool to check for codes, if there are any write them down.
Those codes tell you what to look at while trouble shooting

They indicated that there were no DTCs archived in the computer. The messages I was getting about service shifted, service transmission, do not shift, etc. disappeared when the problem resolved itself.
