My 2000 Dodge Caravan has been bucking/getting stuck while driving or in reverse. This started yesterday. Tonight a yellow light that looked like an engine or maybe a transmission came on my dash. Now my car refuses to move at all. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?

Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.

you have a bad connection somewhere in vehicle engine side, very hard to determine until test drive vehicle with scanner and inspect voltage when it is happening, tell me does the check engine light comes on
Darrell, The trans went into limp mode. 41te trans do funny things. The limp setting is so you can get home or to the dealer. As for the slipping , check fluid first. If ok scan for codes from trans...
the yellow light is the check engine light, the best thing you can do is find someone who has a hand held code reader and let him come to your house. it will pull the code on the engine and tell you exactly whats wrong.
When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
