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.

I lost my 2001 dodge carivan key can i get it replaced?


You can get one cut at the dealer for less than $20 for most vehicles if it is not equipped with a key fob built into the key. It will take about 5 minutes once you get your turn at the dealers parts counter.

On my 1997 dodge grand caravan, sometimes the dash lights go our and all the gauges, speedometer, gas gauge, go out but at the same time the abs light is on, if the abs light stays off all the gauges work,...


Yes it is a loose wire or plug. Next time it happens try hitting/smacking the top of the dash, or the steering column, ect. to try at least to located where the problem might be. This works sometimes. Electrical issues can be a nightmare. There is no quick and easy fix. I do alot of electrical and it can take 15 minutes (if your lucky) a whole day if your not. Most jobs I do take an average of 4 to 5 hours.

The ABS light comes on in my 1997 dodge ram van and I have no troubleshooting info. Also I need to know the location of the control module.


Hello,
Here are a few common causes for the ABS, ( Anti-lock Breaking system ), light.

1. Check brake fluid level, sometimes this can trigger the light.

2. When your brake pads get worn down, this too can trigger the ABS light.
Often new brakes will correct the problem.

The control module, ( onboard computer system ), is generally located near the front of the engine compartment. Most have a large plug with many wires.

I hope this helps.

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.

Please let me know if this assisted you,
