It is more then likely either a solenoid or a clutch pack. If you hear a bump and then nothing when you shift, it is probably the clutch pack, if nothing happens, it is more then likely the solenoid. The bad news, it will require a rebuild either way. Reverse gears are some of the hardest to change, and especially on that transmission, it will be quite a process to repair.

Why would a dodge grand caravan not shift out of first?


Sounds like trans has a major problem and has gone into "limp mode". Actually goes into 2nd gear and will not go into any other forward gear. This is to keep you from being totally stranded. Get it checked.

Maybe something wrong with neutral switch? Usually it is on or close to transaxle shift lever, follow the shift cable to shift lever, the switch has multiple wire connector.
It may be possible to start vehicle by jumping the load side of starter relay, key on. There are safety issues trying this, the vehicle will crank in any gear. Make sure tranny is out of gear, parking brake is set, block the wheels, whatever it takes to be safe, safety is your responsibility.
If the problem isn't that neutral switch, then I don't know? Any applicable trouble codes?

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

Shifts into gear extreemly hard


Often the fluid type can do that. If you just had the fluid changed recently, it's likely that the wrong fluid was used (they all have different friction coefficients) If I remember correctly Chrysler makes an additive that will help with harsh shifting as well.
If not a fluid problem, then likely you have a pressure control problem inside the unit that would need to be checked by a shop using gauges. (could be as simple as a "kick-down"cable adjustment to correct)

Gear shift in 07 Dodge Caravan doesn't go cleanly into gears and will settle in reverse gear causing the car to not be able to be started or to lock the key in


Sounds as though you may have either a bad shifter cable, or it is out of adjustment. You can remove the airbox, and check the cable, and linkage where it attaches at the trans. I have seen the linkage work loose and cause the same problem.

Sounds like the shifter linkage needs adjusted. There is a neutral saftey switch that prevents the car from being started in any foward or reverse gear. If the shifter linkage is out of adjustment, the neutral safety switch will give you starting problems.

Van makes poping sound when I change gear.


Possible motor mount worn. Stop at a reputable garage, they should be able to confirm for you at a glance.

1999 Dodge Caravan Does not go in reverse


The shift soleniod is the most logical answer or the shifter cable has to be adjsuted.
I do not think the gears are an issiue. Is you fliud clean ? Does the fuild smell burnt or dark in color.
Is there metal shaving in the fluid. ?
If any of the above condition exist then you should take the vehicle in for service .
