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.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Transmmition problem


Hi.this is caused by lag that is actually occurring within the TCM(transmission control module) and solenoid connection.

The TCM and solenoids work together with the actual shifter inside the van on the steering assembly. when you shift to drive or reverse, the signal is relayed to the TCM and the TCM relays the signal ot the shift solenoid that is located inside the transmission pan. this solenoid , then, initiates the shift action. If there is a malfunction in the TCM or shift solenoid, it will slip or lag while shifting. this is what you are experiencing at this time.

I recommend testing the TCM and shift solenoids for there operational values. I would also check the transmission fluid level as well. Low fluid level can cause gear slippage or lag as well.

PLease rate and god bless:)

2000 dodge caravan engine and transmission swap


Although the transmission may be siilar, the engine and supporting wiring harness, and control modules are not. This can be done, anything can, but it is probably more trouble than it's worth for a mini van. If this was a classic car then sure.

check from the starter relay if you get any power when you attempt to start, if you do, take out relay and connect the cable with power to the cable to the solenoid, (usually red black), if car starts,replace PRND switch on the transmision its very easy to change, once you locate it, you can also try to start the van while moving gear lever within P. GOOD LUCK!

2000 dodge caravan. Speedometer and odometer quit working and transmission will only work in reverse and low


hi there try to get a price on the speed sensor located on the transmission this sensor tells the computer how fast the van is going in turn the transmission shifts gears and there will be information sent to the speedometer . the reason the van only goes in low gear is to protect the system because the sensor is damaged so replace the speed sensor and try again , let me know how its running after relpaceing the sensor good luck
