Definitivelly you have some Powertrain codes problem, specifically your codes says...

* DTC P0920
Definition: Gear Shift Forward Actuator Circuit/Open
The cluster is not receiving a vehicle speed message from the PCM.1. Check the PCM software level and reflash if required.
2. Use a DRB scan tool to verify that the vehicle speed message is being sent by the PCM.
* DTC P0921
Definition Gear Shift Forward Actuator Circuit Range/Performance
The cluster is not receiving a distance pulse message from the PCM.1. Check the PCM software level and reflash if required.
2. Use a DRB scan tool to verify that the distance pulse message is being sent by the PCM.
* DTC P0999
Definition Shift Solenoid "F" Control Circuit High
An error has been discovered.1. Record the failure message.
2. Depress the trip odometer reset button to continue the Self-Diagnostic Test.
Hope this helps to solve it.

My 1995 dodge 3500 wont stay in lockup


Do a OBD1 fault code test and see if a speed sensor code shows up, if this sensor is defective it will cause the truck to drop out oif OD. The VSS sensor is located on the drivers side of the transmission case. Use the Check engine light flash out to read the code.

WONT START.SECURITY LIGHT FLASHES WHEN TRYYING TO START


Anti Theft System - inmobilizer is actovated. Need disarm to start engine. Have you another key and fob? Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect.

Hope help with this.

I have a 2002 dodge durrango, 5.7 liter, and the 4 wheel drive will not engage into 4 wheel drive, what would be the problem?


I would check the fuse panel(s) for possable fuse issue.

If fuses related to the 4 wheel drive is not pop close the panel(s) up.

I would than hope into the truck and perform the 3 quick on/off with the key(do not start truck!! and let dash units turn on before turning back off) to see if there might be a code the comes up. If so, call or look on-line for your codes to describe what the issue is or could be.

If the truck does not show codes I would move on to perform this step:
- Start the truck
- Put foot on your break
- Take truck out of "OD" Overdrive
- Place the truck into "N"
- Switch the quick switch into 4H and let it sit for a few seconds and drop you truck into "D" with the "OD" off. If the light is flashing try to drop the truck into L1 with the "OD" off and wait a few seconds to see what this does. If the light on the 4H is still flashing take the gearshifter back to "N" and wait a few more seconds. If the 4H does not stop flashing try all of these steps for 4L. (What we are doing is seeing whether or not the switch is bad or the quick switch unit that allows the 4 wheel to kick in is bad.
- If the lights keeps flashing I would go to a repair shop that you would trust to assist in this issus.

Just as a FYI, I do have a 02 Durango and the 4H switches great it is the 4L that some times takes a while to switch. Another thing to remember that if you use your 4 wheel drive to go mudding in all the time you my have burned out the unit the it takes to perform this task of engaging the 4 wheel drive all together.

I hope this helps out with your issue and remember to perform the simple steps 1st before spending big money on repairs!

Single mom can't do nothing cuz of car


You may have a faulty ingition. Otherwise you have the very common GM anti-theft system. If you have a flashing anti-theft light with key in igniton, then this is what you should do:

Put key in ignition, turn to ON position (Do NOT Start)
Leave in on position for EXACTLY 10 Minutes
Then while watching the anti-theft light, as SOON as the light turns off after 10 minutes, START CAR IMMEDIATELY after light turns off.

This will reset the anti-theft

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.
