remove the black trim around the cluster.. then remove the 4 srews that hold the cluster in the dash.. the bulb will twist out of the back of the cluster main board. the new one will just twist back in and then re-install the cluster to dash and then the bezel

Hi, concerning the left turn signal, this is caused by a faulty or defective flasher relay switch. this is easily replaced and once replaced with a new relay, it will fix this erratic flashing issue you are having. Now, concerning the gas gauge issue. the reason for the non response here is because of a malfunctioning sending unit that is located inside the actual tank. it is part of the fuel pump assembly and it will need to be replaced.

OK, this is concerning the dead radio issue. i would first check the fuse to see if it is ok. if the radio fuse is fine, this will more than likely be an internal circuit issue within the radio itself and, you will have to replace the factory radio. most factory radio systems tend to get really hot and this is not good. it usually ruins the internal circuit board in time, completely rendering the radio useless. i would still make sure the fuse is good. it could be as simple as a blown radio fuse. i will post a step by step guide below that will help you replace the flasher relay.

FLASHER RELAY SWITCH REPLACEMENT GUIDE--

Step1 Locate the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side of the Caravan. Look near the emergency brake. The fuse box cover has two finger screws that you should loosen to remove the cover. Inside you will see a collection of fuses and in the upper right corner a few relays. Step2 Find the turn signal hazard flasher relay in the upper right corner of the fuse box. It should be easy to spot as it is the biggest of the relays in the box. Remove the relay and replace it into the socket from which you just pulled the bad relay. The placement into the socket is tight and can be difficult, but be patient and take your time. Step3 Look to make sure it ended up in the correct position. Close the fuse cover and tighten the finger screws. Start the Caravan and test all the light functions. Make sure that the turn lights blink and that the hazard lights work properly.

Please rate and god bless:)

If you look under the dashboard on the driver's side, there is a fuse panel. Under this panel is the BCM(body control module). There may be a bad relay in the bcm. Worse case scenario is a bad BCM. I hope this information is helpful to you, Good luck.

I have a 2002 lincoln ls that has gas guage reading only a quarter tank when full. I know there is 2 pumps on this car, one is the primary pump under passenger back seat and a jet transfer pump on drivers...


Fuel pumps outside the gas tank have nothing to do with fuel gauge readings. There is a fuel level sender unit inside the tank with a float which supplys variable ground circuit to the gauge. If you can find the wire to this unit, you can ground it to see if the gauge now goes to full. If so, sender unit in tank is bad, or has bad wiring/ground.

Low fuel light on gauge doesnt work


lamp burned out, ?
but does the fuel guage work 100%
and at what tank level do you expect the lamp to come on.?
did you read the FSM on this, its covered
or alldata.com?
free.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

on this car, the PCM reads the fuel level then sets the fuel guage
and if the level (voltage from tank sender) is below a specific
voltage , it glows the lamp, low fuel
so if the fuel guage works, and the lamp is dead, the lamp is burned out. (or conn. bad to it)

2005 Dodge Caravan Fuel gauge


the fuel level sensor is a float off the side of the fuel sender. over time these floats can become weak at the pivot point and read inaccurately. fuel sender should be replaced to correct this problem

Fuel gauge no reading


A fuel gauge not reading is almost always caused by a defective fuel level sensor inside the fuel tank, this sensor is part of what is called the "Fuel Pump Module" and it is replaced as a complete assembly. Replacement of the part requires the fuel tank be removed from the car.

2006 ENVOY fuel guage reads empty after fill up. What is the cause and how to rectify?


Usually I find there are two common causes for this problem. If the gauge goes to empty after a fill up but then starts to work and be fairly accurate as the fuel level in the tank drops then it's often the fuel level sending unit which is attached to the fuel pump module inside the tank. I have seen some guages go bad also [actually the servo motor that runs the gauge] but usually the gauge will stick in one spot and rarely move or go to either end of the scale and stick there. A good shop should be able to determine the cause of your problem pretty quickly. Hope this helps and good luck!

The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

Fuel gauge peggs out


Mostly likely you have a tank mounted fuel gauge. If your vehicle is pointing down hill the guage goes up or down. It is usually the fuel level in the tank that makes the float go up to tell you how full the tank is, if fuel is sloshing around then level fluctuates. I would say that if it stabilizes on level ground and at a stop, and you can get a stable fuel reading then this is more of an annoyance than a problem. If you can get an accurate reading and you do not run out of fuel you may want to leave this one alone, you will have to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel float on top of the gas tank which can be labor intensive as well as expensive.
