    The shop says it is an engine computer problem; however, before the rebuild it was shifting. The problem before the rebuild was it would either shift from high to low or it was locking up. Sometimes the wheels would lock up. It was a serious problem. It is not doing that anymore.

    Already tried the overdrive button, nothing. The mechanic used the computer tester and received error codes for all the transmission celinoids. Is there a way to verify the problem is the engine computer without buying another one, or switching with another sedona? (I don't know anyone else with a sedona that I could borrow the engine computer from for a test).

You probably have the overdrive turned off. Look for a button on the shift-lever and push it while driving to see if that solves the problem(also try pushing it repetedly if nothing happens). If nothing happens then you either have an electrical problem or whoever rebuilt the transmission screwed something else up! In that case i would hold them accountable to fix it!

Good Luck!

It could be as simple as a linkage adjustment or vacuum control unit or an ATF fluid change.
You might wise to visit a transmission shop where they can got this rebuild.

Thanks

Have a 97 caravan (grand) and it runs normally when it first starts from cold.. goes about 15 miles .all gears shift fine on highway then all of a sudden it drops out out overdrive (4 speed auto) and will...


Caravans are known for transmission failures. Sometimes it's just a speed sensor or computer problem, but most of the time you need a rebuilt trans. Don't fall for the trans flush might fix it story. On older or high miles trannies, flushing can cause more problems than it solves. Find a good trans shop not just your regular garage and have them take a look. If you do need a rebuilt trans look up engine and trans rebuilding shops in the yellow pages or google. Buy it directly and save a lot of money. If you regular garage won't install it for you then find an independent mechanic that will (some garages won't let your bring in your own parts because they lose all the money they make by marking up the cost of parts).

E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2


check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
