Scan the van at Auto Zone or anywhere and see the problem

this is calle"Limp Mode" Chryslers default to 2nd gear to "limp" you home without getting stranded


hope this helps

What does the input sensor on your transmisson of a Pontiac G5 se 2007 do


The speedometer not working wouldn't be caused by an input sensor . The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is a direct input to the PCM , the PCM shares is info over the GMLAN data bus.
Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed based on GMLAN serial data message from the body control module (BCM). The BCM receives vehicle speed data from the powertrain control module (PCM)/engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The speedometer will default to 0 km/h (0 mph) if:
?€¢
The PCM/ECM detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The BCM detects a loss of GMLAN communications with the PCM/ECM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of GMLAN communications with the BCM.


The only way to diagnose these problems is with a factory scan tool , this will check inputs an outputs at the PCM an BCM to the instrument cluster . This avoids guessing an playing the parts game. Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .
Same thing with trans not shifting out of first gear , could be a shift solenoid ! Does it shift manually , moving gear selector through the gears ?

2002 merc villager speedometer doesn't work, tach OK


The speedometer is electronic and controlled by a micro processor, the needle is operated by a special DC electric motor called a "stepper" motor, this little motor can cause this problem as well as the Vehicle speed sensor on the transmission (see photo below), either part can cause the problem, the cruise not working would lead me to believe the speed sensor is defective, but you should have a Check Engine light on and a fault code for the sensor, do you have either? Autozone and others do the fault code test for free, ask for an OBD2 fault test. Here is the picture of the sensor I mentioned.

My check engine light came on, the transmission stopped shifting and my speedo didn`t work either. I replaced both speed sensors and it still doesn`t work, what else can I try. the car is a 2000 Dodge...


Did you change the Vehicle speed sensor or the wheel speed sensor?? The vehicle speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission..And its for the speedometer and shift pattern..If all good depending on what year,some have to be reprogrammed

1994 chevy 1500 4 x 4. Transmission wont shift and speedometer quit working


Chances are that the vehicle speed sensor has failed. This would cause all the symptoms that you mention. If the computer doesn't seen any speed, then it has no reason to shift the transmission up and out of first gear. And of course, there would be no speed shown on the speedometer.

Speedometer not working, high revs & won't shift out of low gear


Your issue is a bad "speed sensor". Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in your transmission, and when it quits working your speedometer will not work, it can cause very irregular shift patterns and slipping. Replacing your speed sensor should resolve your issues.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
