I would say you have a problem with the dash cluster. If both speedometer and odometer were not working I would say the problem may be the speed sensor but being only the odometer is out I would blame the cluster. I believe you will have to replace the cluster as a whole with a reconditioned unit. one more thing there is no fuse for the odometer on any car. The odometer (digital) is driven off a circuit board that is part of the instrument panel.there are two seperate cables for speedometer and odometer you will have to check the odometer cable too.if its faulty replace it. ----------- and yes when you get the car will read and show the codes on as per that codes you can easily locate which part is having fault so you get the exact faulty part replaced. at ------ getting the car scanned and diagnosing is free. ------------ this will help.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks.

2000 dodge caravan wont shift

Need more information.
For example, if it were an automatic, I would suggest first checking the fluid for level, color, and smell.
If it is a manual shift, then I would ask if it shifts when engine off, but fails with the engine on, as a clutch problem?
So tell us more.

My 2001 Dodge Caravan's transmission is stuck in reverse.

Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.
Check operation's
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, questions of problems, Feel free to contact me at!

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
