On ocassion my 1999 Dodge Caravan will not shift out of first gear. When this happens nothing comes on to indicate there is a problem. The problem is just happens on occasion. At other times the vehicle runs fine. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Replaced transmission with a used one and now it will not start. The indicator on the shift column does not show the gear that has been selected.


The shift cable linkage is likely the culprit. It won't start because the car cannot tell what gear it is in (it needs to be in park or neutral for the starter to operate).

Do you have battery power to release the shift lock actuator? Instead of grease, try jumper cables and another vehicle or a battery charger.

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.

1990 dodge varavan will not go into reverse


It is more then likely either a solenoid or a clutch pack. If you hear a bump and then nothing when you shift, it is probably the clutch pack, if nothing happens, it is more then likely the solenoid. The bad news, it will require a rebuild either way. Reverse gears are some of the hardest to change, and especially on that transmission, it will be quite a process to repair.
