Service engine soon light on

It is the coldest here it has been in years -23 celcius. When I started my 1999 Dodge Caravan LE the service engine soon light stayed on. Could the cold have anything to do with this? Also it is time for an oil change. Please help.
Thanks Tracie

Service engine soon light came on soon after I had a fuel injector replaced. The last 2 months I have put 2000 dollars into my 1999 Dodge Caravan. I checked my gas cap and it did not resolve the problem....


You first need to tell us what the error code (s) is. The injector and gas cap are two completely different issues. Get it scanned and come back with that information.

1999 Dodge Caravan with a code 23. What does that


OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description
A P0020-023 code refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module). That consists of an oil control valve (OCV), also called a solenoid valve and other components. Basically the check engine light and associated P0020-023 trouble code means that the voltage in the circuit has fallen below a set limit for a specific amount of time (varies by make/model/engine). Bank 2 is the side of the engine that doesn't contain cylinder #1.

Causes
A code P0020-023 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
  • Open or short in the VVT/VCT circuit
  • Open or short in the OCV / solenoid valve
  • Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions
Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
  • Carefully inspect the Bank 2 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
  • With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed

1997 Caravan Airbag like comes on intermittently.


ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.

Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down

No service engine soon light when I try to get trouble codes


It comes on when the key is turned on to show it works, then it goes out as soon as the engine is started, it has a fuse, that will be marked, if the fuse is ok then you may have either a bad connection at the cluster connector or a bad ECM

Service engine soon light came on, manufacturers code 14191. What does this code indicate ?


I'm a total amateur and that's why I had to ask the source.. worked in my case as advised by dealer's service center advisor;

- put the key into the ignition and turn all the way as if you're going to start the engine, however do not start

- hit breaks tree times within 5 sec

very simple..no codes..battery disconnect etc.
