P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

    How do I clear the codes, I already change the In & Out speed sensors, check the trans dip stick and it does not have a burnt smell, the van it still stuck in 3rd gear. How will I be able to clear the codes?

700 is generic code meaning a transmission malfunction. It could electrical or mechanical. You'll have to retrieve the other codes. The solenoid packs are the most common parts replaced on these.

I'm coming up with codes Po700, Po732, Po605, Po720 when I run a diagnostic on my Dodge Grand Caravan Sport, 3.3, 6cyl. Could the TCM (Transmission Control Module)be bad or it just need re-flashing?

I dont think reflashing will help this, the first thing that comes to mind is the output speed sensor, i would replace the sensor and reset the codes and go from there, the out put speed sensor can make all this codes come up, the po720 is the out sensor, when this goes bad the trany doesnt know when to shift gear at the right time so if it shifts at the wrong time you get the other codes like the po732 2nd gear error or po605 internal trans controller, replace the sensor first and see what happens after that, good luck and hope this helps.

Transmission problems???

The electronic shift solenoids are serviced as an assembly that is quite easy to replace. Your fault codes are all related to shift solenoid faults.
