My 1995 Dodge Caravan is also experiencing a shift problem...seem to have the lower gears and reverse but no overdrive...drives along at 4000 rpm at 80 km/h instead of about 2000 rpm (or less). Any help/advice is appreciated, but it looks like no-one has replied to this forum posting yet...

I read on another forum that if a transmission will not shift out of 1st or 2nd gear, it's in limp mode. Drive the vehicle for about 10 or 15 min and turn it off. Turn the key on and off 4 times. (without starting the motor) This will reset the computer. hope it helps.

Transmission was leaking badly and the mechanic fixed the leak by replacing a gasket above the oil pan. Now the transmission won't shift when accelerating from a stop. Reverse is good, but not going straight.

Can you help?

Thank you

I have a dodge caravan 2006. It will not shift into park or neutral. Therefore I cannot re-start. No indicator lights on gear indicator for P or N (OK for R, D, 3, 2, 1) No codes on my OBDII reader (base model) I can feel the gear lever go to the spot between R & D but it will not go into P.

Check engine (MIL) lamp solid while trying to engage starter. Then it begins to flash then stps and goes out. Turning the ignition on off several times makes the trip odomoter read "done"

Any help is appreciated

Hi, I just got a 2000 Grand Caravan. It will not go into Park.

It has 255, 000 miles and drove fine for about 30min during test drives, went into and out of park fine. Drove two hours home, and no park.

However, when I put the shifter where park should be, I can take the key out. Yet it still read reverse, and rolls, and if running it will drive reverse from that position.

I have a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with a Lee Miles tranny from last year. 10k miles later I dove home unable to shift past 2nd(automatic)RPMs at 4x1000(fast) and only doing 45 MPH. Slow! Check engine light came on after it bumped into gear. Is this an ATX Relay problem? I was able to get the car into 3rd at one point. fluid levels are good.

Ok well guys I had a late 80's model and now a 95 not much has changed they all have transmission issues. TRY THIS FIRST ok so Amco told me i needed a new transmission it was not shifting ect...they told me it would be 2300 for them to put on in. Luckily I knew a machanic that worked on all of the FOX News trucks and he was good well e discovered the problem was not with the transmission exactly. He found the the Relay in the engine cabin (near the fuses) had gone bad and guess what $11.00 later I had my van back on the road he said that was very common so knew what to look for 1st took about 2 minutes to take the old one out and put the new one in. Well that was 6 years ago so the price may have went up a little but want to check it out before you throw it out!!
