Your TCM may need flashing, but the first thing you need to do is have the codes run on it and see what shows up. As far as your old ones go, did you service the transmissions yourself or trust someone else to do it? If you trusted someone else, odds are very good that they didn't use the proper fluid in them. ATF+4 ONLY in Mopar transmissions. I don't care what any shop tells you, Dexron plus an additive is not the same thing and will destroy your transmission. If that's what's going on, then you need to change it yourself, or find a shop that will listen to you.

I have split this off from the other thread so more people may see it.

Any warranty? I'd let the dealer handle it.
Is it an engine misfire or transaxle issue? Agree with looking for codes. Replace nothing until this can be diagnosed.

I alos had the cruise control on the caravan go and took it to the dealer which they fixed but claim they couldn't find anything else wrong with it after they took it for a test drive. I don't know about you but not to sure I trust the dealer.

They had to put something down on the repair order to get paid by Chrysler. What did they say?
An active fault code will prevent the Cruise control from working.
