I have a 1999 dodge carvan sport and today it started running wired,the speedometer will jump all over the place and it jumps not slips but jumps...acclerates on its own and when i got home turnred it off...


The speedometer is part of the instrument cluster. I would suggest you buy one on ebay that has been recycled. If the one from the junkyard does the same thing then the problem is probably in the body control module (BCM). I 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.

I replaced the transmission now it wont go in revers and the speedometer bounces back and fourth from 0 to a 100 revving the engine up and down and it will only drive about 20 to 40 miles mph this is on a...


i wonder if you got a faulty solenoid pack...which is the housing that bolts to the top of the transmission and is what houses all the shifting solenoids. if that is stuck in low range position, you will get what you have been describing. possibly fluid, or check the transmission linkages, and make sure the shifter cable is hooked up right in the right position. Make sure it moves freely and EASILY too..if all checks out, then possibly you have a bad transmission.
