DODGE INTREPID SENSOR PROBLEM

Dodge Intrepid

I have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid. The problem is intermitten but very troublesome when it happens. When I turn on the car or occassionally while I am driving, the guages (tach, speedometer, indicator light, heat guage) will stop working and the car will not shift out of low gear. I had it in a garage twice and each time they did something (tighten a ground wire and something with the computer). The problem is still happening. Sometimes it snaps out of it within a few blocks, sometimes it takes considerably longer (7 or 8 miles). Any help as to what this is or what I can do will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Sounds like the Output Speed Sensor is going out. I had a Dodge Stratus that did the same thing. If you leave it like that it will never shift out of low after a while. There is a panel in the drivers side front wheel well (stratus) take it off and the Output Speed Sensor is there on the tranny. Cost about $20 at Advanced or Auto Zone.
