Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

94 Dodge Caravan 3.3

Battery check by Checker Auto said Okay. When turning on the key some of the dash instruments fluctuate on and off. You hear a very faint chatter like the starter not engaging like most dead battery issues. No head lights at all. Since the battery checks out, what do you recommend I check first. Give me an old Chevy and I will take it apart in my sleep, but where do you start on a front engine van?

Sounds like a bad ground, try looking at the ground wire from the battery to the engine block

Why would the dash lights and controls quit working

Possible battery problem. Check your connections, have the battery checked. All free at local auto store. Had same problem, all instruments on my dash went dead. Installed new battery, problem went away.

This might not be your problem, but it's an easy place to start.

My 94 caravan was having the same problem. A salesman at Checker auto advised me to use a high quality fuel injector cleaner with TechRon. I put in a whole can and it worked. I need to do this about every 5-6 months, and the problem does not come back.

Replaced computer but still cant get spark.

If you turn the key on and do not hear the fuel pump run at all after you have replaced the computer then i would look at the (ASD) relay (auto shutdown relay) for the problem. Remove the relay from the power panel. To test the relay,use a ohm meter and connect one end to the #85 and the other end to #86, the resistance should be between 70/80 ohms. Then check continuity between terminals #30 and #87a. The meter should indicate continuity. Then check for continuity between #30 and #87, the meter should not show any continuity. Then connect a jumper wire to terminal #85 and negative post on battery and connect the other jumper to terminal #86 to the positive post of battery. By doing this it will energize the relay and during this time connect the ohm meter between #30 and #87. This should show continuity. If not replace the relay. Hope this will help you.

Will not start

The clicking noise is usually the sign of a dead battery. No gauges or noise could mean a REALLY dead battery. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Have u tried to jump start it? U can take the battery to a parts store where most will check it's condition for free. So check this 1st and let me know what u find. If that's not it, we can continue.
