Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan

4 Answers

Tranmission stuck I have a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan that I had from new, now it has 70K miles. Yesterday while driving the gear stuck in 2nd I think and will not shift and the Check Engine Light came on. I put it in reverse and back in forward but it still stuck in 2nd gear. I drove home about 25 miles in 2nd gear. Today I started the Van and the problem cannot be reproduced, it gone, the transmissions is running like new. Any one know what may be the issue.

    We turned the temp to the coldest setting and the refrigerator is still running warm. We pulled it out, cleaned around it, vacuumed the back and underneath but it is still running warm. There are no unusual sounds. The freezer is cold and making ice and seems to be running fine.

I have heard of this many times what happens is what the compuiter for the tranny louses it mem then the tranny does not know when to shift . the way to reset it is take off the pos. cable for 2 min and then hook it back up then it should shift . if not then a tranny shop will have to reset it with a diagnostic equipment it is 45 dollars for this charge. It is the modern car of to day i do not like it either .

Hope that helps...........

It seems your gear box is having some problem ...........when you were trying to change the gear forward ,reverse the gear rod might be having some problem to move especially the ball placed in the rod .........the next when you have started van the ball might be moving freely thats the reason you feel like new...........but it is better to check your gear box because it may cause you in trouble while you are going for long journey

When your check engine light comes on it usually refers to the exhaust system, oxygen or many other sensors that can effect engine use. You need to have this looked at by a professional or you can try yourself. You can go to a local auto part store and pick up a code book and code key to check the onboard computer to find out what the problem is. Please let me know if I can be of more help.

Tranmission won't into shift into D stays in 2nd. gear speed odmetor don;t work


Hi...sounds like you need to have your 3-2 shift solenoid in the transmission replaced. Go to a local Auto Zone auto parts store near you and ask them to check you computer codes to see if this solenoid shows up. They do not charge for this service.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

Tranmission problem on 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan


When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
