I am having the same problem with the dash lights in my 96 voyager. I cannot see how fast I am going after dark. Were you able to find your problem? We have checked fuses, bulbs, and put in a brand new switch. My husband has had the dash apart a few times and it has been to the garage twice. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as this problem has given me grief for the last 6 months.

OK, here goes. My Voyager 96 (later computer) goes OK for a distance (8miles or so) then stumbles and eventually will die. Tach goes to zero when bucking. This stranded me 3 different times on the highway in Jan. -20 or lower temp. Roadside repairs attempted were: Camshaft Position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, coil pack. After the first time, a garage gave it a tuneup: plugs, wires, filter. I replaced the computer and it worked for a long time till this week(with the engine light on). I decided to try and remove that problem before Vacation. Auto zone computer checker said EGR valve. I replaced and light went out. Everything went good on vacation. Got back and 1500 miles after the EGR light problem fixed, it started doing the buck and die routine from Jan. again. It was raining. Help..........

I just put up a post for my Grand Voy 96. Similar issues if not worse. Mine would never restsrt in Jan. could have been the cold. Had it towed 3 times. I put in all sorts of stuff, including crank and cam position sensers, and a computer... still having problems (renewed this week)

My 2005 Chrysler T&C Limited quit on the highway today! Of course at rush hour and I was on the left shoulder. All of a sudden, it just lost power. It just died and would not start again. The alternator would work the accessories, but the engine would not start....and no, I was not out of gas! It was towed in to the dealership, and they will look at it on June 23.
We had another problem with the radio. Intermittently, the radio would have no sound. It seems to happen more frequently after we have used the DVD player. to solve this, you must turn the engine off, open the door, and start it back up. Of course, it never does it at the dealership!
I hope this is one of those unusual incidents, but I have to say that it was pretty scary sitting on the left shoulder with cars and trucks going by at 75-80 miles an hour in 98 degree weather.
I'm sorry to be a buzz kill to those who are out enjoying their van....we enjoy it when it works!
#2892 of 4276 Sorry to hear that.

That's a shame. Did it happen this morning? I would have thought they could have found the problem by now. Keep us informed

How long have you had your T&C? Mileage?
#2895 of 4276 '04 T&C Sunroof Leaks
Jun 22, 2005 (7:29 pm)
Now I know this isn't necessarily a crushing disaster type of problem, but the sunroof on my van leaks...the drains in the front corners apparently kink as they make their way into the A pillars, down and out...they fill with silt and debris and don't drain. The collar inside the sunroof housing fills with water and it makes it's way out through any available opening...drips from the visor screw holes...handle screw holes...shoots down the inside of the windshield from the headliner joint when braking...it's a mess...this on a 35k + Daimler vehicle...stupid, don't you think ?? I've taken to blowing the damn things out periodically with a steam nozzle, otherwise my dealer has to pull the headliner to play around, and never solves the problem (twice they've tried). Maybe Daimler should install a non kinking PVC tube at the pillar ??
Anyway, thanks for letting me rant a bit...
#2896 of 4276 1997 Grand Caravan no power to instrument panel and gauges
Jun 22, 2005 (7:39 pm)
I am the original owner of a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan SE with 98k+ miles. While my wife was driving home today she noticed all the lights on the instrument panel were out and the gauges for speed, fuel level, etc were indicating zero. I read in an earlier message re: a 1992 Voyager, that the problem was traced to a bad computer. Indicators for "Check Engine Soon" and "ABS" were illuminated. Any advice that leads me to a quick and economical solution will be greatly appreciated.
The engine starts, the radio operates, the ignition key insert chime functions.
