#4114 of 4276 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan ES Turn Signal won't cancel
Jul 23, 2006 (7:25 pm)
I just purchased a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan ES and the strangest thing is happening , the left turn signal will not cancel under normal 90 degree turns. If I sit still and activate the signal light I can cancel it buy turning the steering wheel to the left slightly and the back to straight, however when in motion the signal will not normally cancel.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and can offer some advice ?

System could be overcharged, causing condensor to freeze. Is it cold again in the morning and then slowly warms up during use?

It could be either one although my bet is on the battery. Any repair shop can run a diagnostic on the charging system to determine where the problem is. Assuming this is the original battery, to me you're living on borrowed time with it so if I were in this situation(which I was last winter with our 2001), I'd go ahead and replace it.

Were you able to fix it yourself? I'm having the same problem with my 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan. The liftgate won't even lift or beep with the remote or interior button. I'm hoping I can fix this myself.

try changing fuse #32 (40 amp) in the power control module which is located under the hood on the drivers side. It is the black plastic box near the fender. The top comes off with 2 plastic clips and the inside of the cover shows fuse locations.
#4119 of 4276 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport - Some Minor Problems
Jul 25, 2006 (9:49 am)
I am the second owner of this 98 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport and I love the vehicle. However, just recently I seem to be experiencing some electrical problems. I have over 80,000 miles on it and the electrical "shorts" (for lack of better terms) comes and goes. I can drive the vehicle for weeks and then all of a sudden the ABS light comes on and my whole dash display goes blank, the gas gauge reads E, the spedometer is on zero and the temp gauge is at zero too. The locks won't even engage in the vehicle. And then all of a sudden (without me doing anything at all) I will hear a buzzing sound coming from the door locks and everything goes back to working order. Also, two of my lights on the panel that has your heating/cooling settings (the a/c light and the recycled air light) begin to blink everytime you start the vehicle. It stops after a while and as soon as you shut the car off, and back on, it starts all over again. As of this morning my Air Bag light is on and my horn won't work now. Has anyone else had these kind of problems and how do I go about fixing them myself? Is this just a problem with a relay or fuses? I would appreciate any responses at all....
#4120 of 4276 99 dodge caravan radiator/transmission problems
Jul 25, 2006 (10:16 am)
I've been searching the forums for a while, and I'd like to get some opinions on the following problem:
My 99 dodge caravan - 4cylinder had a problem over the weekend with the transmission slipping.
We towed it into the dealer...the radiator had transmission fluid in it. Since then the dealer has told us the warranty company will replace the radiator, and pay for the transmission to get flushed out. My husband and I are also going to flush the engine, and since the a/c wasn't working they will also replace the evaporator.
I would like to know, according to the dealer they feel flushing the transmission won't solve the problem....(they said that the torque converter is contaminated with anit-freeze).
I'm sorry but I always thought that once the tranny would start acting up it would just be better to replace it not flush the system. Any input/suggestions would be appreciated. (our warranty is through interstate - the diamond package)
Thanks for the help.

I was having the same problem. I changed the fuses and it continued to do it. Finally it quit working and didn't come back on. I had a diagnostic test run. It was my instrument cluster. I found one at a salvage yard in Illinois on line for $39.00. My van is a 1997 with 257,000 miles.

Thanks for the info...I will have someone check into that. I will also look online for a instrument cluster and see if that is something that I could replace myself. I take that you have not had any other problems since then?
