Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

When i turn on my van the abs light will come on. Sometimes not right away but shortly after. The directional are not working when this happens and our heat wont work. The power door locks also stop working when we have this issue. Once in a while the airbag light will come on for about two minutes then shuts off.

    I have also been told it could be the combination switch, which i exchanged for 90.00 and still having the issue. Also been told it may be the abs pump. Not sure everyone is telling me something different

If the abs light does not come on immediatly when you star the car but comes on once you start moving means it is a wheel sensor and you will have to have the code pulled to see which one it is

Hi my name is Allen!

If the ABS light comes on this means there is a problem some where in the system. Go to AutoZone and have them pull the code for you, right down the code number and what it means and I will assist you in repairing the problem.

For further assistance contact me at FixYa!

a failing ABS sensor is at fault, visually inspect wiring and also check each tire for bearing play, some sensors are a single unit ABS sensor built into bearing, if found play at any wheel that may be the one is failling.

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

ENSURE THE AIR PRESSURE IN ALL 4 TIRES ARE THE SAME. CHRYSLER UNWITTINGLY HAS A TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitor System) by having an ABS light.
When 1 tire turns slower (or faster) than the other 3, the ABS lamp illuminates when it thinks the wheels aren't turning the same speed, (they aren't). When properly inflated, (or all 4 at least at the same pressure, the ABS Lamp will go out soon, (not immediately). Maybe on the next drive cycle.
