In my 2003 dodge neon sxt... the transmission input and output sensors have been changed about 6 months ago. this solved the issue of the vehicle not shifting out of first gear and the speedo started working again. Now the vehicle is showing symptoms of the same issue I believe, speedo is floating above then below actual speed on acceleration and levels out at correct speed verified by flashing speed trap signs on the road. when the speedo floats by over 15 mph it downshifts but only during heavy acceleration.I will replace the input and output sensors myself again, I was wondering if another part is the reason the sensors are failing? possibly how often this will occur?
before you replace them again, just check the connections first, one may nave come loose
very good idea, I wish I was around when this problem showed up the first time. car was in psychotic mode when i came into the picture, simple advanced auto scan showed me the sensor issue. no trouble codes yet at this time.
Just gonna give u aheads up its a dodge trany beware i just got done working on mine today they all have shifting problems around this year
the only sensors in stock are not the cheap ones... hope it works longer this time...
Can somebody please help me i was going to work in my 2002 dodge neon suddenly the gears didnt want to move up to a other gear i put a new transmission on it and it. still does the same it dont want to change gears can somebody tell me what it is...????
it might be in "limp mode" which prevents the car from going out of 1st gear. can be caused from multiple issues, do you have a CEL on?

I am having the same issue with my 2003 neon. I replace the transmission, computer and the instrument cluster panel but it still won't shift from 1st gear. Can someone help please
First thing dodge neon don't have 1st gear just 2 3 4
there is a shift solenoid on the outside front of the transmission that goes bad. I can't remember if it was the 1/2 or the 3/4 but easy fix. it is directly below the air cleaner box.
