Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan
Can go about 40 mph at 3500 rpm but won't shift
The input and output vehicle speed sensors (VSS) are under the aircleaner. You have to take out the air cleaner to get to them. I purchased mine on eBay for $25 for both of the. Any backyard mechanic can change them. I hope this helps you.

The most common cause of Dodge transmissions going into limp-in mode most of the time are the input and output speed sensors. These are relatively inexpensive to replace, and will most likely take care of your problem, provided there are no defect wiring issues, or internal transmission problems. Still, the best way to handle the situation would probably be to go to your nearest dealer. At least armed with information, no one can take advantage of you. The sensors are usually about $60-$80 for both, and the dealers will usually charge about 1-1.5 hrs. labor to change them.

The trans. computer is detecting a problem with it and the trans. is in "limp in" mode. When the trans. computer detects a problem with the trans., what happens is the computer will not allow the trans. to shift into the next gear. The reason why it does this is so the car can be driven to the nearest repair facility. You're not supposed to go more than 40 MPH while the trans. is in this mode.
