Why wont transmission shift out of first on 96 dodge caravan and peedometer does not work?

The speed sensor sends a signal to the speedometer to show the correct speed and it sends a signal to the transmission telling when to shift. If the speed sensor is bad the speedometer will not work and the transmission will not shift correctly.

You recently had the transmission replaced on your 1992 Dodge Caravan and the mechanic that did the job can't figure out how to hook up the speedometer He says the new one has a different plug?

If he replaced the trans with a differant trans, there is a speed sensor on the extention housing. If that is the plug that does not fit then you will have to buy a new speed sensor ,it will fit. If this is a four speed trans (604) overdrive trans then the other possability will be an input speed sensor. Make sure that the trans is from a 1991 thru 1995. And from the same size eng

Your speedometer on your 1995 Dodge caravan stopped working how do you find the cable to replace it?

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.

My 168000 mile 1998 dodge grand caravan check engine light went on after a power surgeloss and the speedometer went up and down and finally all gears clunk is this a gear trans. or TCM problem?

If the gears are clunking in the transmission, this is a transmission problem in a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. The fact that the speedometer went up and back down suggests that the transmission slipped. It is more likely that a gear belt in the transmission failed, than something being wrong with the transfer case module or TCM.

Why does the speedometer reads zero but still can drive a 1999 Dodge Caravan?

It sounds like the instrument cluster has gone bad on you. The car is still driveable but you won't have instruments. If only the speedo is not working, you may have a bad sending unit on the transmission. Check all the fuses and relays first. If you have no luck, take it to a mechanic who has the right tools to find the problem.
