#4193 of 4276 2002 dodge grand caravan problem
Sep 01, 2006 (8:44 am)
Well, my car is still in the shop. They called me today and said the chrysler corp. told them to replace the whole wire harness box.??? To a cost of $1860.ahhhhhh. This is rediculus. The mechanic took the box out and shook it and said there was water in it. How could that happen? If we have to pay this then we've put $2000 in repairs on this car since 04/05. Does anyone have any idea how this happens?
#4194 of 4276 Door ajar switch location on 2003 Caravan?
Sep 02, 2006 (1:01 pm)
I'm helping my father in law with finishing a wreck repaired 2003 Caravan. When you open the left front door, the odometer and door ajar warning light comes on, and when you slam the door HARD, the odometer and door ajar lights turn off, but only for an instant before turning back on. Seems to be indicative of a switch problem. The wiring diagram shows a door ajar switch, but we can't physically locate the switch. Any ideas? A wire runs to the door latch, appearing to be for electric door lock function, is it possible that the door ajar switch is integrated with the door latch?
#4195 of 4276 Very loud crunching noise in 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan engine.
Sep 02, 2006 (5:06 pm)
I have a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan with 146,000 miles. It has been well maintained and running pretty smoothly until yesterday. It started making a loud "crunching" noise, similar to the noise the ice maker on my refrigerator makes when you choose crushed ice. It only makes it at very low speed, or when sitting idle. It is not continuous, it comes and goes. It starts up after the car has been running for at least 15 to 20 minutes. It is very loud, it sounds like the car is going to blow up, but will then stop. I do not know anything about this and would appreciate any advice before taking it in to the shop.
#4196 of 4276 2006 Town and Country Codes
Sep 03, 2006 (5:44 am)
My new T&C shows a code P0456. Does anyone know what this code is? Can it be cleared without an OBD2 tool? If it can be cleared by disconnecting the battery, will I lose my radio preset stations? Thanks for the help, I could take it to the dealer but I've already been 7 times for other problems. I have little or no confidence.

easton- Check your power steering fluid level. If the fluid is low and you get air in the line, it will make the noise you described. Adding more fluid and running the vehicle, eventually the air will work its way out of there and eliminates that noise.
I know the noise....it's scary. But remember that the bark is worse than the bite.
Check your fluid and see if that is the problem.

PO456 means that the "EVAP leak monitor has detected a small leak". The most common cause of this is the gas cap has not sealed properly after the last fill up. Try removing the gas cap and putting it back on being careful to tighten it until you hear at least 3 clicks. If that is the problem and your actions cure it, the code will go away in about 3 ignition cycles. I don't believe disconnecting the battery will clear the code.

We figured it out. The switch is intergrated with the door latch. We adjusted the latch and now it works fine.

#4202 of 4276 96 grand caravan tranny issues
Sep 06, 2006 (8:35 am)
my wife's caravan is slipping in first gear and I know the info is buried in here some where, But I have spent two days looking for it. Can any one give me the quick scoop on the accumulator piston problem in the transmission, and are there any quick fixes. I am pretty capable of pulling the valve body from the tranny . are there any special tools required? will this fix work?
Frustrated and Bewildered!
Thank you in advance for any info!
