Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Car will not shift out of first gear

While driving my 2000 Dodge Intrepid the check engine light came on and would not shift out of first gear. The speedometer also stopped working. The trans fluid level is fine and does not smell bad. Could this issue be caused by a bad speed sensor? If so where is it located and how can you test it?

It sounds like the TCM has reverted to Safe Mode because it has detected a problem.

Dodge intrepid new solinoid still won't shift the gear to next.


I believe these models have a transmission temperature sensor. If the transmission gets to hot it puts the car into limp mode until it cools down. A faulty sensor may be your problem. Also you may consider installing a transmission fluid cooler. Most cars have the transmission lines routed through the radiator to cool the fluid but radiators get hot. You want to keep the fluid as cool as possible. Ask your local parts supplier about a transmission cooler.There like 30 bucks but can save you a rebuild later :)

Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES


I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

1999 dodge intrepped wont shift out of first gear


Won't shift out of first, or is stuck in second? These transmissions will go into limp mode which sticks it in 2nd gear. Is the check engine light on? This will most likely lead you to the fault if it is.

Gears aren't shifting...RPM's too high


There is a problem with the transmission sensor on these cars that will set a trouble code and cause the problems that you describe. Another issue is the correct fluid, use ATF+4 in your Intrepid or you'll mess up the transmission.
