First of all Check the shift linkage and the downshift mechanism. If the downshift rod is adjusted wrong or disconnected, the transmission may be getting a signal that you are trying to pass, leaving the transmission in a lower gear. If it's a newer, computer controlled transmission, it may be a speed sensor, relay, electrical connector or a problem with the internal valve body.try using some penatrating spray on the shift linkage which is located on top of the concorde.
-----------------
The speed sensor is located behind the front driverside wheel over the cv boot. The wire for it is supported on the strut.
The output speed sensor is located on the transmission near the middle of the car. To get to it, the car must be lifted, either by jacks or a hydraulic lift at an auto shop. The sensor is basically under the center console of the car.
--------------
its easy to replace ,there are 2 speed sensors on this vehicle... both are on the tranny driver side... front one is output back one is input... you need to unlatch the plugins and a 1" deep socket and ratchet... make sure car is cooled down... about 5 mins on each...

I've got a 1999 Chrysler Concorde Speedometer wouldn't work transmission wouldn't shift Concorde


Your best bet would be to take it to AAMCO or some other repair shop an have them run diagnostics on the car . They could hook up scanner an be able to tell you right away , instead of replacing parts you don't need .

My 98 concorde is stuck in second gear and the speedometer quit working at the same time what would make it do this


I would say the speed sensor in the transaxle is the problem with both issues. The body computer needs the speedo to tell which gear to use, and second gear is the default when the system is in fail mode.

My 99 chrysler concord speedometer quit working and it wont shift out of 2nd gear. What is wrong?


Chances are the check engine light came on also. You should have the vehicle scanned for codes, it could be that the output speed sensor has failed. This could put the transmission into limp mode (second gear) and cause the speedometer not to work. I would guess this to be an inexpensive repair, .6 hours labor plus the cost of the sensor, $16.99 at O'reillys ...I hope this helps

Can anyone tell me what the oil pressure should be for a 2002 chryler concorde. 3.5 litre single overhead cam, 24 valve?


Hi!!
THE OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE CHECKED REMOVING THE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR AND INSERTING A MANUAL OIL PRESSURE GAUGE. AFTER TEST, USE TEFLON TAPE TO REINSTALL THE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR

My 1999 Dodge Caravan will not shift out of 1st. gear.


YES the speed sensor is first to check, but dont just go buy one and put it in. does the odometer work? if so, its getting a signal. The insrument clusters are common to fail, ususally a cracked solder joint in the circuit board. it will need to be removed and resoldered. if the odometer does not work, then check and verify that the spped sensor is indeed not putting any signal to the dash.

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
