is it a sensor? i took it to my mechanic yesterday and they couldn't figure it out. they plugged it in the computer (damn things) and there were no codes. even when the check engine light is on. i think dodge is cursed when it comes to the caravan. my parents bought one back in 1985 and had so much trouble with it. they bought a 1995 model and still had problems with it. i think its time to dump dodge and stick to chevy. thanks for the reply. if you find out exactly what it is, please let me know. thank you.

Not quite sure. It happened again this morning. there was dew on the rear windshield and I went to turn the rear wiper on and the darn thing wouldn't work and I hit the button several times and was getting annoyed until I realized that my instrument panel was not working. What a way to realize that it controls the rear wipers. Very intersting. I hate my freaking voyager, it's been nothing but a crap load of problems. I'm looking into getting a toyota rav4. I will definitely keep you posted once someone figures out what is wrong with mine.

doesn't that just bite the big jawawa. It gets rather annoying and frustrating. I would just like to own my car for a period of time w/o car payments and little to no problems. I currently have 141500k on my car. it runs very smoothly, just all the little $$$ issues that keep piling up.
#4232 of 4276 Problem with Town and Country steering wheel electronics
Sep 26, 2006 (11:00 am)
The electronics (audio, cruise control)on the steering wheel of my 2001 Town & Country minivan recently stopped working and at the same time the airbag warning light came on in the instrument cluster. In speaking with the parts person at the local dealership he said it is most likely a bad clockspring. Does anyone know how difficult a job it is to replace? I was told the trickiest part is removing/replacing the airbag assembly.
#4233 of 4276 Bosch +4 spark plugs?

Anyone tried those Bosch Platinum +4 (4-electrode) spark plugs?
I'm considering them instead of the T&C's stock Champions.
Please share your experience. Thanks.
#4235 of 4276 Anybody had a CD eject problem ?
Sep 29, 2006 (7:16 pm)
My '02 T&C has a stock radio/CD/tape player. One of the CDs was left inside for a few days and now cannot be ejected. The "disk present" indicator is ON. As we drive, the CD player is continuously trying to eject.
I'd like to avoid spending too much money by bringing it to a shop. I'm comfortable with electronics/electrical work, but my time is also limited. Can the player be repaired reliably, or it's time to upgrade?
What did/would you do?

i have had cd's get stuck before. i got mine to come out by trying to place another cd underneityh the one inside the player. it will eventually come out. i have not used it since. if it does not come out, place a firecracker in the slot, then light it. lol, j/k. good luck.

I had the dealer replace the plugs using Champions at 95k and noticed the improvement. I was going to use the Bosch Platinum until I read in Consumer's that they didn't really make a much of a difference over standard plugs.
I did try the platinum in my Altima because the store had a sale on them. I had replaced NGK plugs with 55k miles on them. I didn't notice any change in performance.
