All trans solenoids are inside the transmission, if you pull the pan they are there.

MY 2002 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN TRANSMISSION ONLY RUNS IN THE THIRD AND REVERSE SHIFT POSITIONS. I CODE TESTED THE VEHICLE AND IT DISPLAYED P0750 WHICH ACCORDING TO RESEARCH INDICATES A PROBLEM WITH THE SHIFT...


  • What has happened is your transmission solenoid pack has gone bad. Not to worry, this is an easy fix.

  1. You need to purchase a transmission solenoid pack and a gasket.
  2. You can take your chances with a salvage yard or you can get one off of e-bay for about half of what the dealer will charge you or you can go to the dealer.
  3. Pop your hood and look on the top of the transmission. That little black box is the transmission solenoid.
  4. Clean the area around the solenoid real well with a shop rag.
  5. Remove the connector hooked onto the solenoid.
  6. You may have a linkage to pop off.
  7. Now remove the long bolts holding it into the transmission.
  8. Now wiggle the solenoid out.
  9. Reverse to finish.
  • That's it. Real easy fix for this vehicle.

Diagnostic code for dodge caravan 1996 P1784?


The code is about the switch that monitors the hydraulic pressure for operating the low/reverse clutch of the transmission. That clutch is called into play for all forward gears as well as reverse, so it seems reasonable if that clutch were not working that the car wouldn't move in any gear. I would begin by making sure that there is sufficient trans fluid by inspecting its dipstick. If needed only use ATF +4 but don't overfill it. Also, just on a chance, take a look underneath to see if you see any motion of either the left or right half axles (or one moving, but one not) which would be another reason for no motion due to a drive shaft disconnection or some such anomaly. Other than that, your problem could be with the Low/Reverse solenoid switch in the solenoid pack portion of the transmission (the box on the driver's side of the trans) being stuck. That can be repaired without removing and rebuilding the transmission so let us hope that may be the cause. I would have the car towed to a good independent trans shop that has a reputation for knowing how to service the Chrysler electronic transmission.

Hope this helps.

What does code p1782 mean


The code P1782 MEANS 2-4 pressure switch sense circuit FAILURE. Basically means that the transmission solenoid pack needs to be replaced. Not a hard job

Its a solenoid pack, not like a starter solenoid that you may be used to, so be very sure you know what your doing otherwise you may be walking soon. I believe it's on the side of transmission, driver side, with wiring harness attached & covering it. You might be smart to visit an auto recycler & see one with tranny out before you proceed. At least that way you know what your looking for.
