SOURCE: My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode

The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!

My 1999 grand caravan wont shift out of first gear


Check to see if the shift cable is working properly.Might be broke? Or if it'sok then the van could be in what is called the "limp home mode" which means that the computer has sensed a problem and has switched to a safe mode which keeps the van going just enough to get you off the freeway or home where you can safely determine the problem. Also check that the transmission fluid is where it should be on the dipstick.

96 Dodge caravan does not shift and stays in second gear why


Second gear is the default gear for "limp-in" mode. There is most likely a problem with your Powertrain Management system that is causing it to go into limp-in mode. The ONLY way to find out what is causing it, is to scan your onboard computer network and retrieve fault codes, which will tell you which of the many circuits and systems monitored by your computer is malfunctioning. Otherwise, you could GUESS for weeks and never get it right.

I have a 1996 dodge caravan 2.4 litre w/automatic transmission. Sometimes the transmission shifts fine and other times it won't shift at all. If it won't shift I pull over cut the van off and restart it...


This is called limp mode(2nd gear).This means the onboard diagnostics have detected a problem.This could be as simple as a bad speed sensor or could mean a bad transmission.If you have all the gears sometimes most likely there is a bad sensor or solenoid.You will need to have codes pulled and ask the shop to tell you the CVI values.If you get back to me with this information I can tell you what is wrong.

2001 dodge grand caravan will not shift gears. What could be the problem and how much will it cost to fix?


might be in limp in mode.check fluid level.if fluid level is ok unhook battery for 30 seconds then recrank vehicle.if it does not shift gears or does shift a few times then quits again would suggest letting a transmission expert look at it as you might have a sensor problem or a leak internally.

I have a 1991 Dode Caravan. It won't shift out of first gear, it's an automatic. Is the a cable from the throtle to the trans tat controls shifting? what could be the problem


it sounds like it is limp mode,
if the computer see a problem in the transmission it will keep it in first gear so you can limp to a shop for repairs.
check to see if your speedometer is working if not the problem is the output sensor

I own a 1992 Dodge Caravan and somtimes it goes into second gear


You need to have a shop scan the TCM for codes. Then you can determine what is wrong. These are good for having bad turbine shaft and output shaft speed sensors.

Limp in mode


Your shift control computer is getting a bad sensor value. So either a shift control sensor has gone bad, or there is a problem with your transmission. Either take it to a mechanic or buy a scan tool so you can find out the exact nature of the problem if you're going to attempt to fix this yourself.
