Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

Gear problems I have recently bought a 1997 dodge caravan. I did not have any problems with it until now. I can start the vehicle without any problems. However when ever I attempt to put it into gear it stalls out. Why is this happening?

97 Dodge Caravan Sport Once it warms up it stays in second gear until i put it on nutural- shut vehicle off- and then restart it and it will shift fine. What could it be?


The transmission is going into failsafe mode, meaning the computer is seeing an electrical problem and turning off all solenoids locking it into on gear. Best bet is to get a scan tool and read the codes in the transmission module, common problems are the input and output speed sensors. If you are having problems with the speedometer, you probably need an output speed sensor. I've also had problems with pressure switch codes that have lead to replacing the valve body. If you have a speed sensor code i recommend replacing both the input and output speed sensors, they screw into the front side of the transmission.

when ever you replace components in these vehicles that are tranny related you must take the vehicle to a dealer and have the computer relearned for the tranny .cost is 80 to 100 dollars to have it put on a DRB scanner
