You need a vehicle speed sensor. If the computer doesn't know how fast you are going it isn't going to risk a shift so it defaults to first gear. You might be lucky and it just came unplugged but it probably needs to be replaced.

Probably the speed sensor on the transmission. It would cause both problems. You should also have a check engine light with a trouble code for the sensor.

Hey Todd I have a 2005 5.7 dodge magnum and it won't change gears as i speed up while driving also speedometer stopped working


EASY ONE.... Your VSS (Vehicle SPEED SENSOR) stopped working and it is this Sensor that gives the PCM/ECM the information to change gears. Once you change your VSS, and get it working, the Transmission will start working again...

I am Assuming that the Transmission stopped working at the same time the Speedometer did? Is that right?

If it is, then this is a easy fix. 1 bolt and one Wire Connector and DONE....

I was driving approx.60mph,when my speedometer stop working and the trans.seem to shift into second gear,I believe it to be a speed sensor problem. I do not know the location of it though.


You probably have a blown fuse that conrols the speedometer and shift point of the transmission; Check the fuses inside the car under the dash on the driver side. The speedometer tells the transmission when to shift.

Hi:
This same thing happened to my daughter,s car, and it ended up being fixed with a transmission speed sensor. This sensor not only runs the speedometer, it helps tell the transmission when to shift too.
