The Dodge Caravan is a family minivan manufactured in the United States since 1984. The vehicle is equipped with an important component, the speed sensor, which allows the Caravan to operate at optimal performance.


The speed sensor on a Doge Caravan can be found under the hood on the drivers side, mounted on the transmission.


The speed sensor measures the pressure placed upon the gas or brake pedals and uses the information to provide a change in speed. The component regulates power steering pressures and also aids drivers in slow speeds for tight turns and parking lot maneuvers.


Over time the vehicle speed sensor may require more pressure placed down on the gas and brake pedals in order to gain a change in speed. When this happens, consider having the speed sensor replaced to function reliably.
