Default 2001 dodge caravan sport tcm loctation ??

Got a code scanner and got the code P0605 and now my transmission will not shift out of second gear. I think I can replace this my self I just need help in locating the TCM. I can send mine out for a rebuild for 125 or call a salvage yard for a used 1 for $ 100 .

thanks for the help

The TCM is located behind the splash shield of the front left wheel well.

okay I thought I had located the TCM I had found a large box in front of the battery with 2 huge plugs in it then after reading the box itself it was not the TCM and going back to the last post I was looking in the wrong location. BTW what is this box infront of the battery it saying something about and software update in 2002 ?? I`ll put everything back together and go to the passenger side for the TCM do I have to get a jack and lift up this side to get to the TCM ??? thanks everyone for the help !!!!

okay I have removed what looks like a black box with a very long connector. The connector has a long screw in the middle of it .There is a bar code on it but it does not say if this is the TCM module. Please help let me know if I have found the right part ...............thanks for the help Gabe

On my '96 the TCM is bolted to the right side fender, (passenger side) and is right in your face as you open the hood.

Default TCM issue

Glad you got it taken care of - it seemed you were having trouble finding it. As I suspected, my problem was the solenoid pack, but I had to pay the dealer $80 to do a diagnostic to confirm it. He wanted another $450 to replace, so I'll be doing it in my own garage.
