#99 of 358 Not enough AMP from second power outlet?
Jun 05, 2007 (11:04 pm)
I have a Dodge Caravan SXT 2005 with two power outlets. One at front provides power when switch is ON, while auxiliar (behind second row seat on driver's side) is currently direct from battery after moving 20amp fuse in fuse box.
We just bought a heater/cooler which requires at least 5amp to work. It has an internal system that alerts you if battery is low (I guess it means not enough power supplied) and cooler will not work.
1) If car is not running and cooler connected to outlet2, it does not work due low power.
2) If switch pass back (engine not started but radio working, and cooler connected to outlet1 it works fine.
3) While engine running and cooler connected to outlet2, it works fine while moving; on IDLE it beeps/alerts specially if A/C running at the same time.
I went today to AutoZone and guy verified battery and alternator, he said everything is OK.
Is it possible outlet2 is not giving enough AMP for cooler to work? how could I check that?
Any ideas or suggestions?

Is this an electrical or mechanical dash?

I had a similar problem with my 96 Grand Caravan. Replaced the door dome light switch & fixed the problem. It is a small black button on the door post with one screw & 2 plug in wires once the screw is removed & the switch pulled out from the hole where it is mounted........good luck...Ken.

a very similar event happened to me on my 99 Dodge Grand Caravan. Off & on over many months my gauges would go to zero or bounce & lights would come & go including ABS & check engine lights. I found a wire going from the alternator to the fuse/relay block was hanging on the back side of the engine, below the exhaust manifold & the ties broke allowing the wire to be touching hot parts. It finally burned the fuselink. After replacing it my problems as described earlier have not returned. It has now been about six or seven weeks..........good luck...Ken.
#105 of 358 High Beam relay

I'm trying to find the relay for the head light high beams. I can't find it, even after looking in my Haynes bible... The vehicle: '94 Plymouth Voyager 3.0. Do you have any tips?
#106 of 358 Voyager lights go on and off automatically
Jul 10, 2007 (4:52 pm)
My 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager has all lights come on and go off automatically even when engine / ignition and all switches are off. Mechanic could not find anything wrong (billed me $100 just to take a look). What could be the problem?
#107 of 358 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan passenger door

Our problem is the sliding side door on the van. Something triggers the opening mechanism when we are nowhere near the vehicle. WHAT could make the door open? This has happened twice, and we guess it's someone passing by who has a signal similar to our remote door opener signal. Any ideas?

I don't know what is causing your particular problem but neither does Chrysler. I saw a segment on the news last week about that very problem and the NTSC is considering a recall for that. Check with Chrysler or the National Traffic Safety Commission for updates.
