#2425 of 4276 Having problems with 2000 Plymouth Voyager...
Dec 21, 2004 (9:25 am)
It has 48,000 miles. It started with a ticking noise in the engine that gets faster and louder when I accelerate. The whole engine just sounds like a tin can. I also can't find the owners manual and there is a light that is orange that flips on for a day or 2 and goes off. It kind of looks like an engine and is orange. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks in advance.
#2426 of 4276 Wiper problems
Dec 21, 2004 (9:37 am)
I have a 2001 Caravan with the following problem:
The wipers do not return to their original position when turning off the wiper switch. They tend to stop in their tracks as soon as the switch is turned off. On other occasions, the wipers will swipe 3 to 4 times before finally stopping. Is this a mechanical or electrical problem?

I had something similar happen like that with my 98 Grand Prix GT...It was the wiper motor.

We have a 2000 Plymouth Voyageur doing the same thing & the dealer service dept cannot figure out what is wrong with it. Did you discover what this was?

In Canada, Shell created problems for caravans caused by a fuel additive. Caused a gumming of the float mechanism, gauge would go up and down and dinging each time it drops to low. There is a class action law suit, call Shell they will send a package. I went to the dealer and got a fuel cleaner of some type don't remember exactly what it was called. This cured my problems.

I had this same exact problem with my Dodge Grand Caravan recently. I tried changing the fuse also, then, after some research, the problem was found to be a defective clock spring. This item is in the steering column and was a Dodge recall. It took about 1/2 hour to repair at the dealership. BEWARE! While your airbag light is on, you airbag will NOT WORK!!!!! Good luck.

I have had what you describe with my 97 voyager, and it is a tell tale sign that my battery terminals need to be cleaned with Bakeing Soda and water combination, usually a heavey acid buildup, Battery still has pleanty of juice but as I drive the cables must lose contact, try cleaning the cables with the bakeing soda, My Van has 198000 miles on it and keeps going
#2433 of 4276 2001 GRAND CARAVAN SPEDOMETER STOPPED WORKING
Jan 05, 2005 (2:40 pm)
I just found the board today so this is my first post. My 2001 Grand Caravan Sport's spedometer quit working today . It's been raining heavy here in Phoenix which is very unusual. I don't know if driving through the deep water was a factor in the spedo problem, but thought I should mention it. Everything else seems to be working fine, tach, temp gage, etc. Is this a common problem, or has anyone here ran into it before? Is it an electronic spedo? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Yes, it uses an electronic speedometer. It's not an uncommon problem on your vintage Caravan. This is more times than not the result of a faulty Speed Distance Sensor.
