SOURCE: transmission doesnt shift abs & brake light on speedometer doesnt work

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ABS light & brake light on, problems with speedo working properly

The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

Did they change the BCM or PCM? The BCM doesn't have anything to do with the gauges or transmission shifting or the PRNDL lights. The transmission range sensor is where I would start. This sends a signal to the PCM, from the PCM to the PRNDL lights. The PCM also reads other sensor for shifting. I would have to put it on a scanner to see what was going on. Three things I would definitely check are the range sensor, wires from the range sensor to the PCM and the PCM.

All lights in gear lights light up, speedometer won't work and will only work in low gear


The main problem - stuck in low gear indicates that the shift solenoid may have gone out. In that case it must be replaced. This happens to all these vans eventually. BUT, you might try checking the transmission fluid level just to make sure it is not too low.

2000 grand caravan won't go above 70 mph. high rpms


First I need to ask is it a 4 speed or a 3 speed transmission. If it's a 4 speed when driving down the road pull it from drive to third gear. You shpuld hear the engine speed up if it does not then that means you have on 4th gear and you will have to take it to a transmission shop. If it's a 3 speed then just count the shift points if all 3 gears are present then drive down the road and see if the van goes into tcc. When you mean the rpms are high how high are they.

Speedometer not working, high revs & won't shift out of low gear


Your issue is a bad "speed sensor". Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in your transmission, and when it quits working your speedometer will not work, it can cause very irregular shift patterns and slipping. Replacing your speed sensor should resolve your issues.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
