SOURCE: transmission input speed sensor location

It is located on the front of the transmission. you will see 2 of them one on the left under small transmission lines it is the input then to the right behind the radiator overflow there is the other one. Easiest way to change them is with a 1" deep well socket

SOURCE: MY GEAR SHIFT WILL NOT MOVE OUT OF PARK ON MY 06 DODGE CHARGER

The Dodge Magnum and Charger shifters are having issues that result in being unable to shift from park.
There is a small plastic cog in the gear shift assembly that ends up going bad... if this is the case for you, you are not alone.
The dealer's remedy is to replace the ENTIRE shift assembly because they don't sell parts for it.
There is a company called "Billet technologies" and they sell a metal machined replacement part and they have links to illustrated replacement of the part. It does involve taking the console apart, and part of the radio bezel out of the car.
It's involved but it can be done... I recommend checking for any warranty first, then if you feel daring, you can order the part and have at it.
I personally own a 05 Magnum and the shifter is sticking now and then. We shut the car off and restart and sometimes it releases. I'm going to spray lube down the openings of the shifter to keep things freed up until I can replace the cog inside.
Hope this helps...

Only code p0734 2001 caravan


Hi there:
This code means that the transmission is slipping in high gear and the TCM (TRansmission Control Mocule) logic thinks it has incorrect ratio since it monitors input and output speed. Keep in mind that TCM uses input from the input speed sensor and output speed sensor to determine gear ratios. The TCM then compares the known gear ratio to the calculated gear ratio for the current range.


Check HERE test procedure.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732


P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

I have a 1994 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8 v6 the transmission get stuck in second gear after driving for 30 min was told it could be a speed sensor


The speed sensor could indeed be preventing the van from switching gears. Have this checked into or you could do it yourself by reading this article and following the link it provides for testing. http://www.engine-light-help.com/speed-sensor.html

Hope this helps:)

97 Dodge Caravan Sport Once it warms up it stays in second gear until i put it on nutural- shut vehicle off- and then restart it and it will shift fine. What could it be?


The transmission is going into failsafe mode, meaning the computer is seeing an electrical problem and turning off all solenoids locking it into on gear. Best bet is to get a scan tool and read the codes in the transmission module, common problems are the input and output speed sensors. If you are having problems with the speedometer, you probably need an output speed sensor. I've also had problems with pressure switch codes that have lead to replacing the valve body. If you have a speed sensor code i recommend replacing both the input and output speed sensors, they screw into the front side of the transmission.
