HI, disconnect one of you battery cables for 5 minutes and this will reset the brain box. If this does not work, the transmission may be on its way out. This year of vehicle had problems with specific trannies that will fail every 70-80k miles unless rebuilt correctly. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice, I did that after I changed the shift solenoid and it did the same thing, I was hoping the solenoid was the problem. I will try and disconnect it again and see what happens, if it doesn't work it was a 150 dollar gamble.

    I tried disconnected both cables for about 30 minutes and it does the same thing. I guess the tranny must be shot, I was hoping it was some other electrical problem. Thanks.

    Does the tranny fluid smell of burnt plastic? This is a sure sign of burnt servos in tranny.

    It didn't smell like burnt plastic, I think I will probably have to get rid of it so I don't invest to much and have more into it than what it is worth.

Its an 01 grand caravan sport sometimes speedometer needle moves to 10mph when put into drive and the van is not moving when this happens trans wont shift out of second or third and when it doesn't do it...


Problem is either in the speed sensor and/or instrument cluster. My '01 suffered same issues before it other issues killed it. But, when you do go to shift into gear hold brake and allow it to "swing" until it settles down. This will help with it trying to shift thru the gears and the "hurky jerky".

I have a '03 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD that the heater only blow hot air when going down the road. Van has a new radiator and new thermostat. Sometimes the blower will not kick on for a few


If the problem is a lack of air flow from the vents, and you suspect the blower motor is not running at times, you would need to test the blower relay and blower motor for power and ground when it is not working.

2000 grand caravan won't go above 70 mph. high rpms


First I need to ask is it a 4 speed or a 3 speed transmission. If it's a 4 speed when driving down the road pull it from drive to third gear. You shpuld hear the engine speed up if it does not then that means you have on 4th gear and you will have to take it to a transmission shop. If it's a 3 speed then just count the shift points if all 3 gears are present then drive down the road and see if the van goes into tcc. When you mean the rpms are high how high are they.
