Question about 2002 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My 2002 Dodge Neon ES wont shift out of first gear and speedometer isnt working, all other gauges work fine though. check engine light came on and i parked it immediately. two codes came up, one for TCM and one undefined. all the trans fluid came out? im planning on getting it to a shop soon but was wondering if it would just be the TCM that needs to be replaced or the whole transmission? I read that 2002 was the first year Dodge started using computer-run transmissions and there had been lots of faults, and i had the TCM replaced before but they put in a used part so maybe the used part was faulty too?? any suggestions?

You must have the TCM scanned for fault codes, you could have many issue that can cause this problem. Do not guess, it is huge waste of money. Have the proper testing performed.

SOURCE: TCM codes

I'm having the same problems actually. Mine started with the transmission line popping off and spilling all of my fluid on the highway. Fun times and long story heh...anyhow, I believe that there is a special code reader for the p-0700 issues.

Does your car make a high pitched "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" sound when you turn your key on, without the engine started?

Good Evening, I have a dumb question. have you cleared any current or history codes in the transmission? They will default with codes in the system. Also make note on what they are. If any and we can go from there, and yes tcm would be the next place to go but more info is best as far as codes and such.

SOURCE: 2005 dodge neon the gas guage is going crazy,the

Hi, where to start: get a scan of your OBD2 connector at your local parts chain. Write down the trouble code and send to us. It will probably be something about the vehicle speed sensor, but please send us the exact code, starting with a "P" and followed by 4 digits. There may be additional codes. The fuel gage may or may not be related--did this all happen at the same time?

2002 dodge neon wont shift outta first and speedometer wont work ,already replaced input and output sensors


Maybe the speedometer connection at the transmission might be interfering with the shift lever at the transmission. Not sure if this would apply to the 2002 Neon but on some older model cars I believe it could happen. Just a thought.

Speedometer of 2003 dodge neon does not work and gas gauge is jumpy. replaced 2 input and output vss sensors and still won't work. no codes show on scanner


some of these have had problems with the dash assembly causing alot of problems with gauges and lights and speedometers.if there are no codes in the computer and weren`t any before you replaced the vss sensors then you spent money you didn`t need to.

Wont shift out of second, no speedometer, gas gage fluctuates


If the speedometer is not working and the transmission will not shift it is usually caused by a bad vehicle speed sensor. The fuel gauge thing is most likely not related. This is usually cause by a bad fuel level sensor inside the fuel tank.

Why wont my speed odometer work on my 2002 dodge neon rt????please help


The speedometer is driven by the computer which uses the Vehicle Speed Sensor, which is located on the transmission, to determine how fast the vehicle is traveling. It is not uncommon for the VSS to go out unexpectedly, usually the check engine light will come on when it malfunctions, and the computer will lock the transmission in 2nd gear, which will allow you to limp the car in to a repair shop.

Transmission stuck in first gear


You say you don't get a code.Did you check it with a monitor or is the check engine light not on? The cheapest thing to try are the input and output sensors. They are 20-30 dollars a piece. I think they are screwed in on the pass. side of the transmission.If that doesn't cure it you might want a transmission shop to look at it. Good luck and let me know, Dan
