SOURCE: p1684 dtc code on 2001 dodge grand caravan sport.

Yah code 1684, it just tells you that battery/computer has been disconnected within last 50 starts. If it doesn't drive you nuts, give it some time, you'll be suprised how quick 50 starts will go by & light should go out

Battery warning light came on while driving then later went off. Voltage at battery was 13-14+ then only 12-13 when light went back on later.

Try taking the cables off the battery terminals and cleaning them with a battery brush. Then make sure they are tight when you put them back on. They may not have been tightened properly when the new battery was installed. If that doesn't work take the battery back to where you bought it and have them test it under load. It may be new but it may have one cell that is weak. If that checks good then I would start the car and remove the positive battery terminal. Use your multimeter from the ground to positive terminal to make sure the voltage regulator is putting out enough voltage.

2004 chrysler pacifica no power even after jump

check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

You need to check the out put of the alternator. In general the alternator should put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts. I would say go to where you bought the alternator and have them check the voltage. If check engine light is on you should have a code get them to check the code. Most auto part stores where I live will check your code for free.

The light will go away on it's own if the problem is solved. The unhooking of the battery doesn't work after 1996. I would get it scanned again to see if you have the same issue, and go from there.

1997 avalon xl engine light on runs great egr valve can it be clean ?

All you need do is to take the car for a scan. If there is an error code get back to me.

Or if there seem not to be a code you need to reset the service engine soon/ check engine light.

88 Honda Accord battery light go on then goes off

Have the alternator tesed to see if it's good, if both alternator and battery are good check the drive belt and tensioner for loseness and wear, the drive belt drives the alternator, it sounds like your alternator is having problems charging the battery, if both alternator and battery are good try changing the battery cables, good luck.
