2009 Dodge Grand Caravan shifter won't move

Once the car is started, the gear shifter will not go into gear, even with the brake engaged. It takes restarting the car, sometimes several restarts, before it will move into gear.

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.

SOURCE: Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES

I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

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.

How to shift into 4 LO in 2004 jeep grand cherokee


The correct procedure should be described in detail in your owner/operation manual.
For a 2004, 90 % sure that if it's a quadra trac you have to immobilize the vehicule, put your transmission shifter to neutral keeping foot on the brake obviously, engage the low on transfer case pulling the transfer case shifter, engage the transmission to drive
If it's a select track, normally you have to keep the vehicule moving very slowly (2 mph), move the transmission shifter to neutral, push the transfer case shifter to the right and pull it firmly. Once transfer case engaged, put back the transmission shifter to drive.
It could take few seconds to engage and disengage depending on the temperature and road condition. Do not try it on dry surface (preferable on mud, snow and wet surface). Drive at low speed because you will feel that it's very low geared.
By the way, follow the reverse process to reestablish normal mode

Hope it will help
