Well depends on how good of a mechanic you are. The reverse can be replaced. however the transaxle has to be removed. and you went that far... so logically you'd repair the whole thing. a catalog that you can get for free is called Northern Parts. They are out of Iowa. good stuff and offer lots of diffrent stuff and tranny kits inexpensive. (NOT cheap) thats for the parts companies with stuff made in china. Or call a auto salvage yard and see if they have a used one.

  • What has happened is your transmission solenoid pack has gone bad. Not to worry, this is an easy fix.

  1. You need to purchase a transmission solenoid pack and a gasket.
  2. You can take your chances with a salvage yard or you can get one off of e-bay for about half of what the dealer will charge you or you can go to the dealer.
  3. Pop your hood and look on the top of the transmission. That little black box is the transmission solenoid.
  4. Clean the area around the solenoid real well with a shop rag.
  5. Remove the connector hooked onto the solenoid.
  6. You may have a linkage to pop off.
  7. Now remove the long bolts holding it into the transmission.
  8. Now wiggle the solenoid out.
  9. Reverse to finish.
  • That's it. Real easy fix for this vehicle.

1990 Dodge Grand Caravan Tach, fuel gage, volt meter gauges not working,and dash lights, radio went out and check gauge light came on. At this time it downshifted to 2nd gear and remained until dash lights...

Dam you need a EXORCISM!
No just a loose connection in the dash.
Sounds easy right!
IF you are lucky it may be the main plug not seated into the dash board. Or a bad ire in that connector.

1990 dodge varavan will not go into reverse

It is more then likely either a solenoid or a clutch pack. If you hear a bump and then nothing when you shift, it is probably the clutch pack, if nothing happens, it is more then likely the solenoid. The bad news, it will require a rebuild either way. Reverse gears are some of the hardest to change, and especially on that transmission, it will be quite a process to repair.

My 1995 dodge caravan needs warmed before going into reverse

Trans is internally worn and only sealing properly when parts are hot. I would change fluid and filter just to be sure pressure loss is not from filter but if it does not improve, start saving up for a rebuild.

1997 Dodge Caravan "Back Up" Lights Do Not Come On

Welcome to FY
Check the reverse light switch located on the transmission. It is located by the shift lever housing on the transmission.
also there is a 10 amp fuse in your power distribution center for this too.
