Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

3 Answers

My 2000 dodge caravan just went into its limp mode for the transmission. It is staying in second gear and will not shift higher. What could be the reason?

    Locate the ground of the shifting relay and stick a wire where the relay ground connects and find the corresponding ground wire under the fuse box and connect to it... or check for continuity from relay ground to under the fuse box ground corresponding wire. MY GROUND IN THE FUSE BOX FAILED AND WAS THE CAUSE.

The transmissions available in your caravan are problematic for having a bad solenoid pack. Once the transmission is set in the LIMP IN mode, then you need to take it to a dealer to get the code reset from the transmission and to get it diagnosed properly. I'm sure there will be a code such as, "trans solenoid stuck in LR" which means " low range" if the transmission went into limp in mode, then that simply means it defaulted to second gear only. Which is telling you to have it looked at asap. I'm sure if you repalce the transmission solenoid pack and gasket and perform the re-learn procedure, then your problem will go away. good luck!

There is a code stored thats the best way to diagnose but the most common cause is the tps it is on the side of the throttle the trans uses this to aid in shifting

96 Dodge caravan does not shift and stays in second gear why


Second gear is the default gear for "limp-in" mode. There is most likely a problem with your Powertrain Management system that is causing it to go into limp-in mode. The ONLY way to find out what is causing it, is to scan your onboard computer network and retrieve fault codes, which will tell you which of the many circuits and systems monitored by your computer is malfunctioning. Otherwise, you could GUESS for weeks and never get it right.

might be in limp in mode.check fluid level.if fluid level is ok unhook battery for 30 seconds then recrank vehicle.if it does not shift gears or does shift a few times then quits again would suggest letting a transmission expert look at it as you might have a sensor problem or a leak internally.

My transmission wont shift it stays in first gear.


Most likely it is in 2nd gear which is called limp in mode. You will need to take it to someone who can pull the codes out of the TCM and let you know what is wrong with it. Could be something as simple as a bad sensor.
