    IMBLUE have a 95 dodge Intrepid with an electrical intermittent problem. When you turn the ignition on (before starting the engine) sometimes the instrument cluster is dead. The vehicle still will start but its stuck in 2nd gear (creep home mode). If you let the vehicle run (15 sec.- 3-4 min.) sometimes the instruments will come back on line and the vehicle will shift normally. The Dodge garage replaced the computer but it did not fix the problem. They then found corrosion in a relay and was able to reproduce the problem by moving the wires. The relay was replaced but the problem continued. When the vehicle starts with out the problem there is no issues when the vehicle is running.

The Ignition switch is in the steerng wheel cover, it controls everything to start her up. Mines gave me the same problem for awhile and a whirl.There are sensors for transaxle, if the switch doesn't fix the shift completely change the fluid and filter and sens..

SOURCE: my 1995 dodge intrepid doesn't want to shift out

the transmission has problems. as a fault with it it will automaticly switch into second, but wont come out to prevent any more damage that can be caused. it will still drive and the reverse gear should work, but take it to a mechanic or even a dealer ship, or live with the 45mph. but the transmission has probally went out.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge intrepid 3.3 transmission wont shiftout of first gear

two issues here. this may be a low fluid issue. i would check the level of the fluid first. the next issue could be a blown shift solenoid. these are located inside of the transmission pan.also, check the filter as well.(transmission filter could be clogged)

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Intrepid...shift lever wil shift gears

I believe that the cable has to be adjusted. Most cases, the cable adjustment is off. Worst case senario, is the bushing in tranny is worn out.

SOURCE: I have a 1995 Dodge Dakota 5 speed. The gears are

im not 100% but i think that truck has a hydraulic clutch. if it does for sure then check the fluid level if its a cable or linkage type then it may be out of adjustment. Ether way (low on fluid or out of adjustment) the clutch may not be fully disengaged while your trying to shift. Start there before getting to far into it.

How to adjust the shifting cable on my 2000 dodge intrepid

If its an automatic, which im sure it is. You can adjust the cable by first that the vehicle doesn't have to be running to do this. Find the transmission after raising hood. Should be easy to see. On top of it you'll see a possible L - shaped lever bolted down with what should be your shift cable. Turn the ignition on but dont start. Undo the shift cable from the linkage and by hand turn the linkage down, shifting through all the gears till in low. Reach inside the car and put shifting lever in low. Hook shift cable back to linkage and from inside put in park. That should work

My intrepid suddenly won't shift out of 1st and the auto stick won't work. I assume it's something with the transmission. Is this expensive to fix

Sorry but these vehicles are notorious for bad transmisions, unfortunately it will cost you more than the car is worth to have another transmision put in it.

The ignition switch is faulty if the gauges and dash lights will not come on, change the fuses first. Transmission fluid and filter change needed. Differential gear oil change also needed.
