2002 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN STUCK IN 2ND/3RD, NO SPEEDOMETER...

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan was fine, then engine light came on, no speedometer, lights around park/reverse, etc. illuminated. Turned key 3 x's-codes P0500 & P1698. Replaced both Vehicle Input Speed Sensor and Output Speed Sensor. Codes disappeared, but still no speedometer & still won't shift. WHERE DO WE FIND THE TCM? Is the TCM separate from the OBD (brain?). What are our options? Ran a diagnostic tool - a buddy has one. Wouldn't read the tranny. He says it has to be the tranny because the motor is fine! HELP!

    Dan - thanks for the info. I had van towed to transmission specialist before I could check tcm wiring (hubby may have checked). Just got off the phone with tech. Says he thinks it is the brain to the transmission (tcm?). Still running some more tests. Should know tomorrow. Do you know how much a new or used tcm would be? I THINK THAT IF THERE ARE THAT MANY PEOPLE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM, WE SHOULD FILE A COMPLAINT AGAINST DODGE (I'm not sue happy, but if this is really that serious of a problem, someone could get hurt if their van stops dead or changes gears in high speed. WHAT DO YOU THINK? People could send me an email slandry1@roadrunner.com and put in Subject line: CARAVAN PROBLEM!

    Will let you know. Will also look into problem with state level...

  • slandry1 Aug 22, 2008

    Ok, I haven't looked into any state contacts, but you're gonna laugh when you hear what the problem was with mine! At first, the transmission guy called me thinking the tcm was bad. When I called later in the afternoon, he chuckled when he told me he had found a MOUSE NEST! Yes, a mouse nest! Seems a mouse had chewed the wires to my tcm. Somehow, my hubby & nephew had seen the nest, but excused it and didn't think about how mice CHEW EVERYTHING! Anyway, I had also heard that there was in fact a recall on the tcm issues with these type of vehicles. Everyone should check into it! Let this be a ($300!) lesson to all! CHECK ALL WIRES WHEN CREATURE NESTS ARE FOUND UNDER YOUR HOOD!

2002 dodge grand caravan won't start


Hello, Just by my experience with my 91 dodge grand caravan, I would start checking 3 things. First, did you replace spark plug wires to the correct location(Plugs 1, 3 and 5 on the back, Plugs 2, 4 and 6 on the front,That's all starting from the Passenger's side.) 2nd, do your dash lights and electronics turn on when it turns over? If not, try jumping it and 3rd if engine finally runs after that and then shuts off, then your alternator will be next to check however if engine dosen't start running from trying to jump it then the problem is more than likely your alternator. Though make sure you have plugged in all plugins that you might of unplugged like the one that plugs into your DIS coil pack and all vacuum hoses are connecting. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan and the speedometer is stuck on 120 mph! I was traveling and the alternater went, so I got a new one and a new battery. The car is running fine, but the speedometer and...


you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.

I have dodge caravan 2002 the engine light on the dash turned on so what i want to do to turn it off ?


If the engine light is on that means there is something wrong. Turn the key foward and back 3 times fast without starting the engine, after the 3rd time look at the odometer it will go blank and then it will give you some codes that start with "P" example:"P320" once you get those codes come back or google them and you'll find out what's going on. Good Luck.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

Tranmission problem on 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan


When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
