Sounds like a speed sensor, I will look into that, but if the speedometer isn't working, its either cable, or electronic. Being a 2000, I'm guessing electronic. Chrysler have a lot of electronics on the transmission, as they are electronic themselves. I had an alternator go bad and my battery died, and the car wouldn't shift, it actually down shifted while driving. Have your battery and alternator checked first, then sensors. Like shift silinoid, speed sensor etc.

Landcruiser amazon 2000 diesel 4.2 was driving today and all of a sudden the vehicle was in D for drive and was showing first gear on the dash, and wouldnt drive over 20mph and wouldn't change

the tcm. (trans control module) has detected a fault in the transmission. it won't change because its in limp home mode.
the vss sensor may have failed. let the dealer or transmission shop run a scan tool on it.

Hi, I've got a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 2.5L and it's been acting strange lately. When in forward gear, it remains in 2nd gear and will not down/upshift (Park,neutral,reverse works fine). The speedometer...

If your transmission is leaking, that would explain the transmission not wanting to shift into other gears. An automatic transmission works off of pressure and when enough pressure builds up the valve body will switch to another gear. The most common places that a front wheel drive transmission will leak is the axle seals, there are two of them, one for each of the front axles. Another problem area is the transmission pan gasket and the transmission lines. None of which are really a hard fix. Do not drive the car if with the transmission fluid level low as you will damage the transmission and will be looking at one heck of a repair bill. Also, make sure that you use dex/merc transmission fluid that is approved for your cars transmission. There are several different brands and types available and although they are all automatic transmission fluids, there is a significant difference in them.

Doesnt want to go into gear (drive or reverse) when it is cold outside - after perserverence and a few attempts it will go into gear

a trans service will take care of this problem. condensation in the fluid can crystalize and plug the filter causing the pump to starve

My speedometer bocunce off betwween 140 and beyond that at every speed. graphited head and cable .I have another speedometer but dont know how to remove needle on fox body ford

Check the gear in the trans.Also check the cable to gear in the trans.The gear is plastic and where the cable goes in the plastic cable,it can wear out the square hole.also the plastic gear on the inside(other end where the cable goes in the trans.)can wear down and slip as the gear on the trans turns.This gear is removable,and can be purchased at the dealer,not expensive.

2000 dodge caravan. Speedometer and odometer quit working and transmission will only work in reverse and low

hi there try to get a price on the speed sensor located on the transmission this sensor tells the computer how fast the van is going in turn the transmission shifts gears and there will be information sent to the speedometer . the reason the van only goes in low gear is to protect the system because the sensor is damaged so replace the speed sensor and try again , let me know how its running after relpaceing the sensor good luck
