SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan transmission problem

Kenhoneycutt, Not undermining keemo68's suggestion as ill given, I wouldn't necessarily use that Lucas additive in your transmission. Is your "check engine" light on? If so, it would be prudent finding out what codes are stored before advancing. It is a good suggestion of having your transmission's fluid changed by dropping down the trans pan and taking a look at what resides in the bottom of the pan. It shouldn't be anything more than a slightly grayish to black "film" deposit laying on the bottom. There shouldn't be any major amounts of brass or aluminum. I would wash that film out, making sure it is dry, replace the filter, then reinstall the pan. Then disconnect the trans cooler lines and flush the cooler out using some compressed air and brake kleen making sure it has all been removed, then reinstalling the lines. At this point, I would install the recommened amount of transmission fluid using ATF+4 trans fluid. Not ATF3 or anything else, not even the Chrylsers brand of ATF fluid. All the other ATF's were insufficiant due to foaming of the fluids. The replacement of your transfluid should clean most of the varnish deposits from your trans because of it's high detergent properties. If you do have the "check engine" light on, most probably you'll have a P0700 code with one or more additional codes stored. Without knowing what these are, the most probable problem would reside in your "shift solenoid pack." The shift solenoids are what put the trans thru the different gears. If the computer sees a fault with this pack, it will only allow it to remain in 2nd gear "limp home" mode Disconnecting the connector at this pack and examining it for corrosion or dirt, poor connection...etc. would be next. After that, I would replace this "solenoid pack" and see what happens. Chrysler had beaucoup problems with these.

Here are a couple of things you can try for free if you are mechanically inclined, if you are unsure don't do this yourself.
i can't think of the exact wording for 1787 but is either shift control or torque lock up.
1)If this is the first time you have had a scanner on it since the new tranny was put in, this code could have been set when it did not shift that day, it will stay in the memory until cleared manually, if it only happened once,it could be why it did not set the check engine light.
2) Now you are going to have to get dirty,Dodge is known for having leaky connections on the tranny thus allowing fluid to get into them from the inside. Get yourself a pair of safety glasses with side sheilds, a small can of aerosol brake clean, and a can of compressed air (the kind you clean computers with) and a tube of di-electric grease.
Do this one connector at a time,PUT ON SAFETY GLASSES,disconnect then spray a little air in them to remove fluid then spray a little brake clean on them do not soak them then spray air to dry, repeat this 2 or 3 times apply a liberal amount of di-electric grease re connect

You can save yourself some money by doing this yourself or have a friend do this for you
If you want to erase the code, disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 minutes, do this while you are cleaning the connectors,
If the code comes back up,it ia probably internal

Hope this helps

I have a 2002 dodge grand caravan the trasmission is running in safe mode is there a fuse that needs change on top of the filter and sensor


Safe mode as in it won't shift past 2nd gear or something similar? That means there is a transmission problem and you need to get it serviced or replace the whole transmission. It could be as little as an input sensor but can also be a fault with the internals.
