1997 Caravan Airbag like comes on intermittently.

Hello, I have the Airbag light problem. Mine is 1997 Dodge Caravan. Is there recall for that? Would this also cause "Service Engine Soon" light also? "Service Engine Soon" light came first and then Airbag light latter intermittant and goes away by istself. Two other questions: 1) Is it dangerous to drive like this? Will Airbag go off for no reason? Would airbag work when it is needed? 2) If it is not covered by recall, is it difficult/expensive to fix? Thank you, 1999 dodge grand caravan air bag lite came on and stay's on, is it the clock spring? i think it was recalled when fairly new and replaced, is it still covered by warranty ?

Ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.

Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down

1997 Dodge Caravan, Horn and Cruise Control doesn't work, and Driver Airbag light on is there something other than fuse that may cause this


It sounds like the item known as the "clockspring" has gone bad. It's a unit between the steeing colum and the steering wheel that transfers the electrical connections for any steeing wheel mounted electrincs, like the horn, cruise buttons, airbag, or anything else that might mounted to the wheel.

These are not easily replaceable, however after a brief search, there appears to be a POSSIBLY of getting it replaced under a recall from the manufacturer. Check out this link, and this link.

Makes sense if that is what code was stored in the Occupant Restraint Module. There are sensors in the seatbelts now.

Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls & Defects Database Transport Canada Recall # 2007169 Recall Date:  2007/05/30 Notification Type:  Recalls Audit System:  Airbag Manufacturer Recall Number:  G09 Units Affected:  question.gif 51,000 Category: Minivan Recall Details: On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

Hello
Welcome to FY
Check the reverse light switch located on the transmission. It is located by the shift lever housing on the transmission.
also there is a 10 amp fuse in your power distribution center for this too.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Horn Not Working


The most common problem with this is the clockspring, it is located just under the steering wheel. It will cause the horn not to work, airbag light to come on, and the cruise not to work. There is probably a recall on this. Contact a local dealer to see if the recall applies to your car.
