Of course, check the fluid first. Running, pull the stick out, wipe it and put it in, pull out and read it. If fluid smells burned, it probably is. (indicating an internal problem) If low, add till full and try to move vehicle. Check for evidence of leaks underneath & repair before driving. Even if it does move, it's likely that something has been damaged somewhat from driving with low fluid... At the least, have the fluid changed, to prevent burned fluid from causing more damage.

1995 dodge caravan will not back up goes forward


I'm guessing it's a automatic. It is probably a transmission problem. Check your transmission fluid level. It might be leaking. If it's low just refill it and you will be good to go. keep an eye on the level. You will kill your transmission if you let it run with low fluid for too long.

OK, so did you check the fluid and top it off? If the fluid level is low, it may be time for brake service.

Break (!) light goes on and a noise comes from the light what dose this mean?


it could be as simple as a low fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir or as complicated as a fault in the ABS brake system.

Transmission problems


Go straight to your local transmission repair centre, they will be able to diagnose the fault and repair it for you. Also check your transmission oil, Engine running at normal working temp, in park (P) remove dipstick, on your left at the back towards the bulkhead. check level if low top up only half a litre at a time. if low put in half a litre of the correct fluid(available at your jeep dealer) put foot on the brake and put into reverse (R) then put into drive (D) put back into P and recheck if still low add another half litre and repeat process. When level is correct test drive, if all is ok, take to transmission shop to find the leak. repair and all will be well. Hope this helps.
