First thing I need to ask is when the filter & Fluid was last changed. If recently, Did they replace old fluid with ATF4 from Mopar/chrysler? Chrysler transmissions are very temperamental, especially with any other transmission fluid running in them, even though many mechanics, transmission places etc, may argue with me, it is a known fact. First, disconnect your + battery connection for a couple of minutes, then reconnect, and try that to see if it helps. If not, and fluid & filter haven't been changed in a while, I'd spend the money & have it done, but using only Mopar ATF4 from a Chrysler dealer.

You probably have a check engine light staying on too. My first guess would be the speed sensor on the transmission but I would check for trouble codes first.

In a 2004 dodge intrepid my speed ometer stop working my check engine light went on and is reading transmission solenoid problems and now won't start?


I'd try changing the speed sensor most likely mounted on the outside of the transaxle which is wired to your motor as a fail safe causing it not to start so replace the speed sensor which also could throw a transaxle code then disconnect your battery for 30 min to reset your engine light then reconnect battery and try starting

Y my 2001 dodge intrepid won't shift gears


Start with checking you transmission solenoid under the hood. These do go bad often. But also have you serviced the transmission regular this is vital to know. Speed sensors in the trans need to pick up movement also in order to know what to do these are called VSS sensors Vehicle Speed Sensors in these you have input and output. These should be removed and cleaned and tested for resistance to see if it is within range.
