SOURCE: 1991 Chrysler Imperial Problem
Your car has the A 604 transmission also called the 41TE,and it uses an input and output speed sensor mounted on the transmission.These speed sensors feed information to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) one of the vehicle's computers, which calculates vehicle speed,and sends a speed signal to the speedometer in the dash.It is a totally electric speedometer and odometer,no cable drive like old cars.So the first step would be to scan the vehicle's computers for diagnostic trouble codes,as a malfunctioning speed sensor can cause your symptoms,sometimes accompanied by no upshifting,or erratic shifting.All the components involved in the system have to be deemed good,or repaired if a component is found defective.With the scan tool,there is also a data stream available for viewing the systems while the engine is running and the car driving,to look for malfunctions.Within the data stream,i can look at the speed sensors individual outputs,and see what the computer is seeing as far as inputs and outputs.If the speed sensors check out ok,and are functioning properly,then the problem would likely be the instrument cluster,including the speedometer in the dash.But other components have to be verified good before drawing conclusions.

It is the speedometer that doesn't work? What problem do you have? Does the transmission shift or is it stuck in 2nd?

this could be a relay or body control module as all things are controled electricaly in your van relays are under hood near front of engine ---did you check fuses first? relays next --even trans is controled electricaly

Take a look at thse two and replace them:
Fig. 3: Relay and flasher module — Dynasty, New Yorker (1989–93), Fifth Ave. and Imperial
(This is for the power windows)
The fuse panel, which contains fuses and circuit breakers, is located behind the glove box door. Additional fuses are in the Power Distribution Center located near the left side strut tower in the engine compartment. Each item is identified on the cover of the Power Distribution Center.
There is an additional relay module (relay and flasher module) located to the right lower corner of the instrument panel (Dynasty, Imperial and Fifth Ave.) or behind the cup holder (New Yorker). A relay or flasher can be removed by pulling it straight down from the module.
