The Vehical Velocity Sensor (VVS) has gone bad or the wire harness to lead to the VVS has gone bad. It's on top of the right hand side extension housing of the trans-axle, accessible from the left rear corner of the engine bay. One bolt holds the VVS in place. First check the wire harness are seated correctly and also check all your fuse, (Under the hood and driver side dash); you may not even require a new sensor.
Good luck and keep me posted

My 1999 dodge grand caravan speedometer not working


the speedometer cable could be broke, you can check this, you will have to get under the van, look at the transmission, there will be a cable that screws on. unscrew the cap that holds the cable to the transmission when you pull it off you can try to turn the inter part of the cable it should turn freely, then pull on it, if it comes out its broke. you can buy one at any auto parts store.

The speedometer is operated by a cable to the transmission. The gear selector is also a manual linkage. Neither are electronic. There may be something stuck underneath inferring with them directly.

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.
