    No, no alarm system. the horn just starts blowing. Seems to happen more when it is really cold - like this morning. It will even happen in the middle of the night without the ignition being on.

    No - only the horn.

  • jbell153 Jan 16, 2009

    I took it to the dealer. They say it's the horn pad.
    for now they have pulled the relay.
    Replacement cost of the horn pad is $340 - think I'll get a stadium horn...

It seems i say this way to often but it sounds like a relay. locate the horn relay, likely located in the engine compartment fuse panel near the battery and replace it.

    Lol.... i would suggest checking at a junk/wrecking/recycling yard for that part.... it's interesting that you may be able to buy the whole steering column for less then it would be for that one part....

I have a 01 grand caravan sport and I was driving down the road and for about 1 second the transmition acted like it went through the gears quick and then was stuck in a gear lower than the cruse spe

HI, disconnect one of you battery cables for 5 minutes and this will reset the brain box. If this does not work, the transmission may be on its way out. This year of vehicle had problems with specific trannies that will fail every 70-80k miles unless rebuilt correctly. Hope this helps.

Trans will not shiftcleard

I had a 1999 Grand Caravan that had a bad computer sensor in the transmission. If this is the case, resetting the computer won't change anything. Also, I don't know when they fixed it and it should have been recalled in my opinion but as I was told at the dealership, there was something wrong with the casting of the transmission so that something wasn't getting proper lubrication and my transmission went out at 56,000 miles. Factory guarantee runs out at 36,000 miles. If I hadn't bought the 75,000 guarantee, I would have sued Dodge for the $1,500 bill that it would have cost me to fix it. I didn't buck the $50.00 deductible. I just wanted it fixed and get out of there. Anyway good luck. Jeff M.

99 grand caravan--hear a knocking in front suspension--recently replaced both sway bar links-still knocks--is it most likely lower ball joints? 170k miles--love the van, still goes great

The knocking could be ball joints, control arm bushings, worn strut mounts or struts, missing or damaged spring isolators or a broken coil spring. All of these things are easily diagnosed once the truck is up on a lift , with the exception of the strut, since it cannot be tested unless it is completely removed from the vehicle. However struts should be replaced every 50,000-75,000 miles.

Y 2002 dodge grand caravan sport 3.3 ,have problem engaging transmission into drive in cold weather,transmission will slip in&out before engaging.

If your transmission has gone your best option is a factory rebuild. Most modern transmissions are very sensitive to having clean fluid. You may just be having an issue with dirty ATF automatic transmission fluid. Try a fluid change with the correct ATF.
If this does not work and you have around $2000 to $2500 to spare the Chrysler dealer installed factory rebuild with 36.000 mile warranty is your best option for fixing the Caravan. Any small shop offering the same service for a couple hundred less could be more trouble than it is worth. If you go with the salvage yard transmission there is no warranty on the installation and you could end up paying to install 2 or 3 before you get a good one.

Is a 1999 dodge caravan worth $300 if it needs tranny at 95000 miles?

I'd say yes. Including the cost of a transmission it could be operational for under 1500 dollars. I kept up on the '98 I bought for my wife with regular maintenance and it finally died at over 300,000 miles. Most newer Chryslers have a 100,000 mile warranty, so theoretically it could have still been under warranty. Please rate my solution, and leave a testimonial.
