Question about 1992 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 92 dodge caravan 4 cyl. dies after running five minutes.

It won't restart until its cold. The codes say 12, 53, 13, 55. 53 is internal controller failure. 13 is map sensor. Do I really need to replace both of these? Is there some other explanation?

Having seen many a ("Hall Effect Pick-up assy.) Or know as pick-up plate in distributor fail intermittently, that's where I'd go first. If engine starts cold & runs, then just quits anytime after warming up & driving, then you sit & wait for it to cool & it fires back up. $20-$30 should do it. It's under the distributor cap & easily replaced. That's provided you have that particular system. I'd replace that, remove battery connections to erase codes and start fresh & see what comes up after, if anything. Check this link, scroll down to Fig #8 and see if it looks same under your distributor cap, if yes, change it.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.

AC & Rear wiper switch button indicator lights blink


The procedure for re-setting the HVAC control panel on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan follows:
With ignition on but not running
1. turn knob to air vents
2. turn fan knob to ON
3. temperature setting on COLD (2X) {I have dual temp controls}
4. hold top(rear wiper) and bottom (rear wiper with wash) buttons pressing down together until all the buttons cycle through (this will require 1 to 2 minutes of continuous pressing)
I learned this from a very helpful local Dodge service adviser

2000 dodge caravan heating problems


if you are sure that your heater core is not restricted. then try to recalibrate the climate control panel. if your a/c system is not working then DO NOT ATTEMPT THE RECALIBRATION it will make your lights on climate control panel flash codes forever.
to reclaibrate the climate control panel just have the engine running. turn the mode to vent, the temp to cold, the blower on high, then press and hold the rear wiper wash and wiper buttons at the same time until the panel lights up then wait about 2 minutes for it to run completly when completed. turn off ignition and then restart the engine try to se if you have heat again. if it doesntwork post the codes it gives you after the calibration test.

'92 dodge caravan dies at operating temperature


With the difference in years, there maybe a difference in alot of things. I'd start with mking sure every sensor, injector, everything links up properly to the 99 caravan pcm. If it's seeing the wrong info it will be a no go. Sounds like it's thinking it's -40 outside(foot to the floor to start) this indicates the coolant temp sensor maybe screwy. Let me know what you find, and about any other changes or issues.
