Not sure how it's working but if it doesn't feel like it's shifting one of the most common problems is the input sensor right on the front of the trans.

SOURCE: transmission input speed sensor location

It is located on the front of the transmission. you will see 2 of them one on the left under small transmission lines it is the input then to the right behind the radiator overflow there is the other one. Easiest way to change them is with a 1" deep well socket

what trans do you have? 3 speed or aod? if there is a circle around the "D" on the shift indicator then it is an AOD if not then 3 to buy a cheap chilton manuel at part store. would be to long to put on here

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located in a 1995 Dodge Caravan SE?

The Crank Position sensor is mounted on the transmission Bell housing - back side - a few inches above the extension housing for the passenger side drive axle.
You can get to it from under the hood - easier to see if you take all the air cleaner/intake hose away from over the transmission.
Important note: one 10mm bolt holds it on a slide adjustment - very important that it is adjusted properly.
1. Proper way to adjust is to apply the provided stick-on disc to the end of the sensor (looks like a felt pad - about the thickness of a credit card)
2. Check in side the hole to make sure the sensor ring Does Not have a window directly in line (turn crank pulley slightly to correct)
3. Install the sensor - slide it in to touch the sensor ring - tighten the bolt.
4. plug the sensor back into the harness
The spacer/felt pad will space the sensor at proper distance and as soon as the engine starts it will probably get rubbed off the end of the sensor.
You will have to install the sensor to touch the ring and move it back slightly (about the thickness of a credit card)
When you start the engine - if you hear it hitting - the sensor ring may be slightly bent and you will need to adjust it out.
If you have it to far in it will hit - too far out will not start.
The sensor ring can easily be bent/damaged by transmission work - 95 FWD Dodge MiniVan has probably had the transmission removed for repairs at some point. That sensor information is shared by both the Engine Computer and the Transmission Computer.
Good Luck with that :)

I have a 2002 dodge grand caravan the trasmission is running in safe mode is there a fuse that needs change on top of the filter and sensor

Safe mode as in it won't shift past 2nd gear or something similar? That means there is a transmission problem and you need to get it serviced or replace the whole transmission. It could be as little as an input sensor but can also be a fault with the internals.

Change the output speed sensor as well and clear the vehicle codes either via a scanner or disconnecting the battery.Also make sure the transmission is at the proper fluid level.

My dodge caravan does not change gear

Check the fluid level while the engine is running for the transmission
If low add the proper amount to fill
If it is full you have an internal transmission problem that will need proffessional help locally

2000 dodge grand caravan sport, the check engine light is on, but no codes found after checking with reader, speedometer is jumping all over the place, from 0 to 120 mph, when the speedometer jumps around,...

no codes found because your checking the PCM,
your problem is you need codes from the TCM,the computer for the transmission,since you replaced the speed sensor the other two things that affect a speedometer and transmission are the input and output sensors,they both screw in the transmission.

It will continue to repeat the same problems because it was not designed right.
