Having problems with your 1997 Dodge Caravan ?
97 dodge caravan 3.3Ltrs transmission stay in first gear ( Dont change
Ok if it stays in first it is probaly a speedometer issue or the vehicle has lost its pinion factor setting because of battery being disconnected or some other issue.If it stays in second (this more common) the the trans is in limp mode,and there are numerous reasons for this.You will need to have a diagnostic run to determine the cause and this will be money well spent.You dont want to blindly start swapping parts .There will be some sort of code stored in the pcm and or the tcm that will point you in the right direction.Also have them look at CVI values and check pinion factor setting(tire size stored in tcm).
