No service engine soon light when I try to get trouble codes

I took my Dodge caravan in for a state inspection and the van failed because the mechanic could not get the service engine light on the instrument cluster to illuminate with the KOKFO. I changed the instrument cluster and still have the same problem. How do I get the service engine light soon to illuminate?

It comes on when the key is turned on to show it works, then it goes out as soon as the engine is started, it has a fuse, that will be marked, if the fuse is ok then you may have either a bad connection at the cluster connector or a bad ECM

Service soon light on code 90420-

po420 is catalytic converter efficiency. You will have to replace it to keep the light off. But as long as you live in a state that doesnt require emission test you can ignore it and it won't effect the way the van runs

What does the orange engine light means in my 2008 Caravan.

Hi, this light is signaling an issue the concerns the state of a failed sensor or electrical component. I recommend taking this vehicle to a dealership or local mechanic as soon as possible for a diagnostic run on the ecm. this diagnostic scan will tell you and your mechanic what the specific issue is and, how to fix it.

In most cases, it will be a failed sensor or a failed sensor wire/housing.

Engine issues

You would have to repeat the problem with the scanner hooked up and someone who knows what he's doing watching it. If the check engine light came on then a code will be stored.

Tranmission problem on 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan

When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
