Crysler uses a electronically shifted overdrive transmission. This transmission is designed to go into a 'limp' mode if the computer sees a problem with any of it's sensors. 'Limp' mode will usually lock the tranny in one gear. When mine went on my wifes minivan I brought home my scanner so I could keep clearing the trans control modules fault codes to keep her out of 'limp' mode long enough to make it to the shop. I believe disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will also release her from 'limp' mode. The best thing you could do would be to have her looked at. Could just be a bad sensor or time for a new tranny. If you think this is what you are experiencing try diconnecting your battery for a few minutes and see what happens.

After being raped repeatedly ( in the wallet ) by the wifes '92 model Caravan my first question is: did you use dextron fluid? If so drain it and fill with ATF 3.

Have you flushed the tranny?

We bought our 92 and shortly there after the thing shifted abruptly and you had to warm it up or the vehicle would not move. Draining the Dextron the previous owner used ( found MR Lube receipt ) and filling with ATF 3 solved the problem.

tranny trouble
 
limp in is second gear and trans will not up shift, usally turning the key off then re-start engine will reset trans computer... if trans doesn't have hard fault code ie speed sensors, solenoid pack
you should take it to a tranny shop to let them scan it for codes. 36 fault after shift will be first 52 53 54 all most common codes 24 and 39 are or should I state usually solenoid pack codes. do you know any history of the car as to trans repair, cry update inside rubber seals as of 95 and up 604 and 606 trans.

just a side note wrong trans fluid will do things on shift feel and shudders shifting but wont keep car from moving after its been running that most likely a filter stopped up from converter clutch coming apart or metal from bad planets.
