    Yes it does. Sorry probably should have started off with that. It has a couple different codes actually it has a P 2784 code and P0730and P0732P0733 and P0734. I know I'm screwed been off work for nine months then I just started a job last week looking for a miracle but I know there's no one to be had. Should've stayed in the Marines everything was easier then

    I don't have good news for you. P0730 is a generic code that usually means it needs to be rebuilt. On that car, I wouldn't waste your money. You'd be better off trying your luck with a used car. Keep your chin up, things do get better. I can vouch for that.

SOURCE: 1997 dodge stratus with transmission problems

We have the same proplem and replaced the sensor didnt help. Could there be another reason the car will do this? ( this was the one on the front right side of transmission).

SOURCE: shifting gears

the speed sensor is for Overdrive only, it does not shift the gears it sends the signal to the transmission control module that in turn signals the overdrive shift solenoid to engage/shift into OD.

SOURCE: transmission is not shifting gears while driving

First check fluid level. is check engine light on? is speedometer working? this can be caused by a malfuncition vehicle speed sensor or a mechanical condition such as a clogged filtre.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 dodge charger, and the gear shift is

The shifter itself is quite likely broken. Pressing the brake pedal simply tightens a cable which allows the shift out of neutral to be made. The part runs around $152.00 (as of 06 August 2010) and add roughly 2 hours labor charge to that. The shifter unit is primarily plastic and prone to breaking and IS NOT covered in the lifetime power train warranty which was offered at the time of purchase of the auto... Good luck!

I have 2006 dodge charger 3.5 sxt the transmission some times wont shift to any gear whil iam driving and after few secondes it works fine why is that?

This likely caused by either a poor connection in the wiring harness to the transmission (this trans is shifted by a computer) or a defective Transmission Control Module.

1997 Dodge 1500 ram pickup 360 ci won't shift into 3rd gear

If the truck feels like it is taking off in second gear and will not shift into third then the transmission may be in fail safe or limp in mode. This is generally due to an electrical or control failure in the system. If it is slipping in first and not shifting into third or overdrive then you would have an internal issue. Either way, you are going to need professional diagnosis. If servicing has not helped then I would guess you need professional help on this one.
Sorry and good luck.
