Codes p1747 and p0500

The 500 code is vehicle speed sensor,the other is spooky BUS system failure ECM?EGS controller. The 500 is probably your shift problem. Hopefully the other is a ghost.Seems you should be able to manually shift and get low gear

It's possible this is all caused by failure of the vehicle speed sensor circuit. The circuitry on the 4-cylinder is different from the V-6. Which engine do you have?

Dash /guages /speedo not working and abs light on and door locks

I have the same problem with a 1997 Dodge Caravan. However I don't agree with solution 1 given. Your problem is different then the person in solution 1. His vehicle would not start when the problem occured....our problem is the guages and door lock only work when they are in the mood. They won't work and then suddenly as driving down the road the door locks lock and the guages come on and it may be fine for a week. There are 2 speed sensors on the front on of the tranny.....One speed sensor controls trans shifting and that one is ok or you van would not shift. I thinking you may to check other speed sensor......
The second solution has some merit check and fuses.....
