Dodge Grand Carivan 1997, directional problems,asbs light, heat

My 1997 dodge Carivan has been having issues with the abs light. When i turn my van on the abs light will come on sometimes it will take 20 minutes sometimes it comes on right from the start. When the abs light goes on my heat stops working along with the electric locks. My directional also stop working. I was told to replace the "combination switch". some places didn't even know what this was when i called them. I did this and the issue still occured. One place told me to check to abs pumb and another said this would not cause these issues.

On my 1998 Grand Caravan, the ABS light has come on and I know that I need to replace the front brake pads as I heard them squeeling this weekend but also now the front blower stopped working for the AC...


The ABS light is most likely a bad Wheel Speed Sensor.

The Blower is most likely a Blower Resistor that rusted away. You should have a couple of blower speeds left.

The directional issues are the third problem

Work on one thing at a time.

Instrument panel lights out on 01 Dodge Grand


These vans have had issues with the PIN connections to the instrument clusters. With time the solder on the main PIN connection will begin to fail. The good news this may be repaired at home. First you'll need to remove the instruments. To do so remove the dash components from around the instruments then the (4) screws) that hold the instruments in place. Carefully detach the wire connection from the back of it; take to a well lit area. Look for a PIN with a failed solder joint (this will appear as a slight black or grey circle. If found apply heat and let solder be gin to flow; the allow to cool and reassemble. If you look at my history you'll see I've helped others with this issue.

That should be all you have to do to remove the caliper. 2 bolts. Sometimes you have to separate the pads from the rotor with a little bar or screwdriver to free up the caliper.

Dodge Grand Carivan 1997, directional problems,asbs light, heat


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.

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.

The BCM (body control module) is the problem, have it replaced, this is a common issue on your van.
