check the fuse for the cigarette lighter it is your problem. one of the stupider designs on the 2000 mpv cigarette lighter fuse goes then spedo quits working and car refuses to shift.

Thank you to whoever answered this question. Just saved me alot of time and money..

Thank you so much. It helped me save who knows how much the mechanic would charge without telling me that all he had to do is replace the fuse.

Thank you so much, I had the same problem and the mechanic told me that I have to keep the car for one day to trouble shoot the problem. It took only four dollars for me to buy the fuse. God bless you!

Thank you thank you thank you Duke for putting this suggestion on the forum. You made a gal really happy to not have to take it shop for a simple fix. FYI: I blew the fuse twice using a usb charger for my ipad. :( #90sCarProblems
