Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan
2nd gear is the default when the computer sees a problem,when you restart it is cleared. I thought the clearing procedure was key on engine off,depress throttle fully 4 times within 5 seconds.
If it clears when you restart I would think that a good sign,at least it's not a hard fault.
Most likely a control solenoid in the module mounted on the front of the trans-axle.Serviceing the tranny would be a good start ,wouldn't get it flushed ,just drop the pan and change the filter.

Not shifting from second is a classic sign of pressure loss. As it's ok when cool, you may want to have the filter and fliud serviced [ having it just flushed may cause it to fail completely ].

It sounds like you have a sticky valve body in the transmission. I would recommend that you flush the transmission with some Seafoam (there is one specifically for transmissions, and it is about 10 dollars) you can get it at just about any auto parts store. Follow the directions on the back of the can, then replace the transmission fluid, and the filter. The job is not that labor intensive, but will require that you drop the transmission pan. If you are going to do this yourself, do not forget to pick up some permatex gasket sealer so the pan will not leak when you put the new gasket on it.
