First check fluid. Make sure it's full and clean and does not smell burned (compare to another good car)
Converter failure is usually most obvious when trans shifts to OD. if shift is late or makes bang noise going in, you likely have a problem. to check lockup, after od engages, lightly touch brake, trans should momentarily shift out of od. Whining is usually due to low fluid. Also check transfer case and both differentials for proper level and leaks.

2014 jeep wrangler unlimited mode control light flashes when I start jeep


I'm not clear on what you mean by: "Mode Light".
there are dozens of indicators on the dash, and some of them have multiple functions.
on model year 2010 and up, there is an "Eco Mode" that displays on the left display, with tachometer.
there are also specific warning codes that flash across the odometer display, with the speedometer. A particularly lethal code is: "Hot Oil". I experience this code driving 8 mph in the soft sand dunes of the outer banks NC. Less than 3 minutes later I lost all forward and reverse gears. The automatic transmission had overheated, due,to the the fact that Wrangler JK's do not engage the torque converter in 4WD High range until 3rd gear. So use Low-Range with automatics 2007-2012. The 3.6L 8-speed automatics do not have this problem 2013-newer.
Can you describe the color, location, shape, and possibly provide a picture?

I have a 2002 dodge grand caravan sport, I checked all fluids and everything is up to date. But I put it on drive it make a drumroll like sound and when put in reverse it makes the sound louder. I hav


It could be your torque converter gone bad.. it will have all symptoms you list.. bad grinding type sound and vibrations.. not going into gear.. the down side is that without taking it out and replacing it I don't really know a way to test it. 90% certain torque converter failure. Good luck though.

You may be low on transmission fluid or the torque converter is going bad. Check automatic transmission fluid level with the car idling on a level surface.
