This has happened on our van multiple times. Through some internet searches I have found a solution that works.

Go to your van and, with the ignition off, press and hold the trip reset button. You will see 'Sof' and perhaps some diagnostic test numbers will show up on odometer; the unit will perform a self-test, and the system will do a reset and should it should operate normally.

Cheers!

Double check all connections are clean & tight. You need to get a voltmeter and have the voltage tested at battery with engine off & running. Drive it to the Napa shop you bought the alternator from if necessary, they should perform test free of charge, as the possibility of a faulty one is not out of the question, provided all is connected properly. Did you check that a main fuse for alternator wasn't blown in Uunderhood power distribution box?

Check all battery connections, wiring at alternator, for scorched ends, loose and/or corroded connections, as well as any power distribution boxes under hood. take close look at belt(s) for scorched or burnt edges, or deep grooves, as sign of trouble.Personally if I didn't find anything obvious, I would remove belt (s) and try moving all pulleys & idlers by hand, and feel for binding etc. When that's done, if you must, have someone start & be ready to shut it down quickly, as you observe pulleys, belts etc.

The alternator may not be charging the battery. Jump start it, and use a volt meter at the battery, red lead to positive and black to neg. The meter should read between 13 and almost 15 volts, any lower than 13 volts, the alternator is no good. (this is done with vehicle running).

My 2002 dodge caravan wont start i turn the key and nothing


Start by cleaning battery terminals try to start if headlights are bright and nothing check the starter relay by the fuses stick the same type from another circuit or a spare one where it says spare. Try to start if the lights are bright hit the starter with a hammer a few times while someone has the key turned if it starts you need a new starter. If lights go out recharge battery or replace battery

Why is the battery light on in my 2002 grand caravan? New battery, new starter. Plz help.


the battery light has to do with the alternator. many times it is the fuse to the alternator. there are fusible links that are cosidered fuses. Look for a loose or corroded connection going into the front fuse block.

No dash board lights


It should be a large black plastic box near the battery--the lid pops off and all parts are function identified on the underside of the lid.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan does not start


could be the starter but could also be a relay that is not working properly. the relays are under the hood. you would have to have someone under the hood and someone turning the key at the same time to see if the relay is working. if it works every time you turn the key then its probably the starter.
