It could be one of a few things.

1. I would check my linkage to make sure the adjustments are proper. (you could be putting the truck in drive but it is actually in low gear) The easy way to check is to get under the truck, and watch the linkage on the side of the tranny while someone is in the truck moving the lever to drive and watching that the linkage is correct.

2. If that is ok, then replace the modulator switch.

3. If these don't work you have a problem internally in the transmission.

Oil light on while running

Normally, the oil light indicates low oil pressure, usually due to lowe oil level. That being said, is you have a constant oil light with the engine running and you are not getting clacking noises from the valves, you may have a defective oil sender. Regardless, it is not worth destroying the engine to find out. You should immediately shut the engine and check the oil level. If it is very low, add oil and retest. If the fault persists, attach a mechanical oil pressure gauge to the engine. If the pressure is normal (usually 30-45 psi), then change the oil pressure sensor. If the oil pressure is less that 20 psi, you should investigate the oil sump and pump for problems.

My Dodge caravan run great but slips out of drive and wont go out of 3rd or second gear , and it didnt help , It shifts fine otherwise and doesnt always happen . when it does it wont go back into lowe

There should be a tensioner for the shift lever in the transmission, that help keep the car in the gear you put it in. Check the shift cable or linkage, you may have a issue there. If all that checks out sounds like a internal issue, and most likely would set a code in your computer

My 90 dakota dies at lowe speed when wether is cool,whay ??

Is your check engine light 1) Working 2) On? One suspect would be the coolant temp sensor; which tells the computer the ambient temperature so that it can make appropriate fuel adjustments .... though I'm a little unconvinced that it it would have enough effect to cause stauling.

1999 2.5 ranger motor normal temp if you accelerate and shift at a mid range to high rpm when you inter the next gear it appears to be loaded up ot skipping then it clears up and the same thing happens...

Do a compression check on the cylinders. while you're taking out the spark plugs check them for soot and oily deposits.
Scotty Kilmer has just put a video on you tube that explains this a little. the only thing is i don't know what the spec psi is for this engine

On a 92 S-10 p/u, how do I remove the dash in order to repair dash lights that are out?

Well if there are no visible screws then it probibly snaps in.Not sure what year they started doing this but my 95 full size if you have a automatic trans set the parking brake and set the gear selector in L or 1 and grab the dash above the steering wheel and start pulling there and work your way around.My 85 S 15 had a dozen screws all around the out side of the dash so not sure.If you have tilt wheel you will need to lowe it all the way down. Well hope this helps and good luck.
