This sounds exactly like the problem I had with a Maxima alternator. One minute it was putting out 15 volts the next minute 11.5 volts. Three Maxima alternators I had Pep Boys install in a month all had the same problem, bad diodes. Took the car to a Nissan dealer and had them replace it with a factory re manufactured unit, End of problem. Caravan alternators are controlled by the computer.
The a/c fan control lights could be on from the battery being disconnected or going dead. Mine came on when I had the battery changed. I think those lights can also be used to diagnose problems. Dealers can be expensive but the
techs are usually more familar with the cars the dealers sell.

Anyone else get a recall notice? I received one in the mail yesterday regarding some defective fuel lines (?).
