SOURCE: Engine light on in 2000

it is your EGR Valve. EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It is part of the vehicle emmissions system, and is used to reduce combustion temperature and pressure to control Oxides of Nitrogen. There are generally three parts to the EGR system: the EGR valve
, an actuator solenoid, and a differential pressure sensor EGR (DPFE). These things work together to deliver the correct amount of recirculation based on engine temperature, load, etc. The P0401 code means that OBD detected an insufficient amount of EGR.

Causes A code P0401 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:

  • The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
  • There is a blockage in the EGR (tube), most likely carbon buildup
  • The EGR valve is faulty
  • The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vaccuum
Possible Solutions In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
  • Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open
  • Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits
  • Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model)
  • Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)
  • Replace the EGR valve
LOCATION:
drivers side of the engine bay, just under the intake manifold plenum where the throttle body bolts up! If you take the air snokel off you'll see it better! It has a remote mountted vaccum solenoid with a 2 wire connector going to it that you should be able to see near the throttle body.
Follow the hose from the solenoid down to the valve and you'll find it!

SOURCE: When check engine indicator light came on in 1997

The P1698 code means that no digital data is being received by the powertrain controller (on the left inner fender) from the transmission control module, located on the right inner fender. The manual says to check the ccd bus wires between the module and the rest of the system using the Chrysler diagnostic readout box. But if you don't have one then I think you can do the same thing by measuring for continuity (near 0 resistance) between pin 4 of its plug and pin 11 of the data link plug under the dash .
Then check the resistance between pin 43 if its plug and pin 3 of the data link connector. Finally check continuity from pin 7 of the data connector and pin 65 of the powertrain connector (pink wire). If the continuity between the transmission and data link connector wires checks as well as from the connector to the PCM proves to be ok, then according to the manual the trans controller should be replaced. But you should also verify that there is either a + or - bias voltage of 2.5 volts on each of those wires as a loss of bias voltage will also cause this code.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Stop using it and have it diagnosed and repaired

Don't mean to be hurtful here, but you surely have to
know you have several diagnostic trouble codes
present,as indicated on your dash

Those type of lights have been on vehicles for
30 years now

Keep driving it, and you will possibly start to do
some expensive damage or have an unsafe vehicle
