I am unsure of the dodge. But there are so many way's this could happen. Checking all connections to transmission is the first step. Also linkage. If your daughters car has aaa or another towing service they can sometimes check out minor things for you. If the tow truck co doesnt have a clue its going to be tough without haveing the right tools and scanning equiptment. I have three daughters myself. let me know if she is close to evansville in. I will help.
