2009 Dodge Grand Caravan gear shifter won't move

When the car is started and we go to put it into gear, the shifter won't move (even with the brake engaged). It takes restarting the car, sometimes several restarts, before it will move.

SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln Town Car shifter stuck in park

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

What won't my shifter move on my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan?


Part of the safety features on vehicles prevent the shifter from moving until you apply the brakes. If you could move the shifter without applying the brakes, the vehicle could move unintentionally and cause an accident.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan shifter won't move


Check your transmission fluid level, its not something that is normally checked but can cause problems such as yours. My family had the same make and model as yours and we ended up with a similar problem that revolved around the transmission fluid being too low. You're going to want the car to be warmed up before checking the level, once or twice around the block should do it or let it run for 10 minutes on its own if you can't get it to move.

Transmission will not go into gear causing car not


Are you saying that the shifter itself is not working correctly? Try putting the trans in neutral and see if the engine will start. If so, you may have a bad neutral safety switch.

If this does not help, or the shifter itself is not working smoothly, you possibly have a linkage issue.
