From what I've read it seems a faulty crankshaft position sensor circuit can also cause this problem
Need to check for opens or shorts in the circuit.
This is a forum I read on it:

97 Dodge Caravan Sport Once it warms up it stays in second gear until i put it on nutural- shut vehicle off- and then restart it and it will shift fine. What could it be?

The transmission is going into failsafe mode, meaning the computer is seeing an electrical problem and turning off all solenoids locking it into on gear. Best bet is to get a scan tool and read the codes in the transmission module, common problems are the input and output speed sensors. If you are having problems with the speedometer, you probably need an output speed sensor. I've also had problems with pressure switch codes that have lead to replacing the valve body. If you have a speed sensor code i recommend replacing both the input and output speed sensors, they screw into the front side of the transmission.

I'm coming up with codes Po700, Po732, Po605, Po720 when I run a diagnostic on my Dodge Grand Caravan Sport, 3.3, 6cyl. Could the TCM (Transmission Control Module)be bad or it just need re-flashing?

I dont think reflashing will help this, the first thing that comes to mind is the output speed sensor, i would replace the sensor and reset the codes and go from there, the out put speed sensor can make all this codes come up, the po720 is the out sensor, when this goes bad the trany doesnt know when to shift gear at the right time so if it shifts at the wrong time you get the other codes like the po732 2nd gear error or po605 internal trans controller, replace the sensor first and see what happens after that, good luck and hope this helps.

It wont go over 40 m.p.h. but the r.p.m. go to about 3000 and wont sfift into next gear

This transmission shift to 2nd gear if it detects a problem with the transmission. It may be major, but often it is only a sensor. Try turing the ignition switch on and off three times in a row, and then start it. This will reset the computer for the trans and you can see if it will shift again.

Take it to Auto zone or Advance and have them scan it. If you see a code for the input speed sensor or output speed sensor, they are both external and often have to be replaced. It will not hurt it to drive for a little ways, it was designed to be driven to repair. It is called limp mode.

Hope this helps.

I have 2002 doge caravan and transmission stock in 2 gear

This is a issue which arises in Dodge cars when the car experiences a Failure of the Speed Sensor. When a Car experiences a Speed Sensor Failure then the Car goes into a Limp mode in which the Car gets stuck in the Second Gear. Sometimes this issue is accompanied with Check Engine Light. Please consult a Mechanic to check the Speed Sensor.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
