SOURCE: electrical

the actual proble is in the BCM which means body control module, i will first check and make sure that all the grounding cables to this vehicle is tight and clean and if they areok and the problem continues it is time to get a new or rebuilt BCM.

This is likely:

- your alternator with either a loose/shorted connection or bad ground or,

- your voltage regulator is malfunctioning (which is probably in the alternator) or,

- your alternaotr is well connected but is malfunctioning.

the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.

Truck never reaches operating temperature


low operating temperatures is an indication of an air lock in the cooling system
gauges need the sender unit to be fully immersed in coolant to work but if they are not then the variable resistance material in the sender bulb cannot accurately relate to the coolant temperature
example if you have leak develop in a good system and you do not regularly scan your gauges like a good drive will do. it is possible that you will smell a dying engine yet when yo look at the gauge it will be reading cool to cold because the coolant has dropped to a point where the sender is no longer in contact with the coolant

My dodge caravan dashboard cooling gage is giving false reading.how do I repair.


How do you know its wrong? What have you done to establish that opinion? Gauges are pretty reliable, you need to check the sensor on the engine, usually on the thermostat housing. They are cheap and easy to replace by someone with a little experience. Don't do it with a hot engine. If you have an old style mercury thermometer, check the water temp when warmed up against what the gauge says. Thats warm up not full running temp. 10 mins or so of idle or until the gauge starts to move.

I recently replaced my thermostat on my 2001 maxima and the heater still blows cold air and the temp gage rises as if the car is overheating. Is it ok to drive the car till I can fix the problem?


when the gauges are telling you that a problem exists like over heating. Cold air may mean an air lock in the cooling system. So I consider it to be foolish to risk a motor without checking the temp gauge for correct operation for starters . After running for 10 minutes feel the top radiator hose and if it is not hot to the touch but the gauge shows hot then you have a cooling system problem that would be checked by a radiator shop.. It may just need pressure bleeding to get the air out of the system

2001 town and country 3.8 will not heat


Start the engine and drive it for 10 to 20 minutes. Stop, leave the engine running, open the hood. Feel the upper hose and the lower hose. Are they both cool? What does the temp gauge show? If both hoses are cool and the temp gauge is low than the t-stat is most likely stuck open.

1999 dodge caravan gauges are all mest up


Could be different problems.
The cluster issue could be a problem in the printed circuit board inside the cluster.
The cooling fan problem could be low coolant, a blown fuse, a faulty temp sensor, fan motor, or relay.

Temp gauge showing 3/4 to the red after 30 minutes or so. I have replaced t-stat, radiator, coolant, flushed the system, fans are working. I have check for head issue nothing to indicate problem. Timing...


Is the temp gauge accurate.Is car overheating, maybe car is not running hot.Check engine temp with different source.Gauges can go bad over time.

Hot engine possible radiator fan problem?


That's a definite possibility. Check if your a/c turns the fan on. If it does then the fan part is ok at idle anyway If the temp goes a little high, that can trigger the check gauges light. When you go faster, the regular air currents cool off the radiator instead of the fan.So you may have something there.

Good luck in fixing this problem.

Electrical system goes crazy!!


Dirty Power and Ground connections. Working from the Battery, disconnect and clean all joints, along the Harness to the Main power box, and do the same in there.
It is a Ball acher, but it will fix the problem.
