The most likely cause would be low fluid level.

Most likely the VSS. Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is mounted on the side of the transmission.

Well a lot of them have the same engines & transmissions; but if you have a lot of people you'll be driving around, you'd want the grand caravan...The only difference is the length. I would go with the standard size, it'll probably get better gas mileage and cause less wear on the transmission & engine.

No, but it can cause the trans computer to not be able to communicate. that will cause not shifting.

when my dodge stratus started to do that it was because I needed transmission fluid.

The light will reset itself when the cause of the code has been repaired.

Typically, a bad "speed sensor" will provide an incorrect voltage input to the vehicles computer. That, in hand, would cause a problem in the speed-o-meter reading, as well as shifting problems.

It might be that your pcv valve is plugged or the egr valve is sticking.

I had the same thing on my 2002 caravan sport and I changed the caliper, rotor, and pads and no more clicking.

If it is a 4 speed transmission, you will need to have the transmisson computer checked for codes to know causes. If a 3 speed transmission, you have a failure in the governor system inside the transmission.

Input and output speed sensors in the transmission are the most likely cause, They fail alot, relatively cheap to repair, if left ignored can burn up the transmission.

The transmission computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have it checked for codes.

A bad cam or crank sensor can cause a no start, but the engine will still crank or turn over.
