    We have changed the fuel pump and sending unit, no difference. Checked wiring and finding no problems. If you tap the ignition tumbler the lights come on without the key being turned on. That is why I asked about the tumbler.

I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.

Hi, concerning the left turn signal, this is caused by a faulty or defective flasher relay switch. this is easily replaced and once replaced with a new relay, it will fix this erratic flashing issue you are having. Now, concerning the gas gauge issue. the reason for the non response here is because of a malfunctioning sending unit that is located inside the actual tank. it is part of the fuel pump assembly and it will need to be replaced.

OK, this is concerning the dead radio issue. i would first check the fuse to see if it is ok. if the radio fuse is fine, this will more than likely be an internal circuit issue within the radio itself and, you will have to replace the factory radio. most factory radio systems tend to get really hot and this is not good. it usually ruins the internal circuit board in time, completely rendering the radio useless. i would still make sure the fuse is good. it could be as simple as a blown radio fuse. i will post a step by step guide below that will help you replace the flasher relay.

FLASHER RELAY SWITCH REPLACEMENT GUIDE--

Step1 Locate the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side of the Caravan. Look near the emergency brake. The fuse box cover has two finger screws that you should loosen to remove the cover. Inside you will see a collection of fuses and in the upper right corner a few relays. Step2 Find the turn signal hazard flasher relay in the upper right corner of the fuse box. It should be easy to spot as it is the biggest of the relays in the box. Remove the relay and replace it into the socket from which you just pulled the bad relay. The placement into the socket is tight and can be difficult, but be patient and take your time. Step3 Look to make sure it ended up in the correct position. Close the fuse cover and tighten the finger screws. Start the Caravan and test all the light functions. Make sure that the turn lights blink and that the hazard lights work properly.

Please rate and god bless:)

If you have a decent auto wrecker near you, you can get the whole gas tank including the sending unit for 40 bucks. Then just change the whole tank.

Help! My 2009 Dogde Grand Caravan's key can unlock/lock the doors but won't start the ignition nor turn on lights, radio or lower windows. What do other owners or mechanics think it might be?


Your style of key is a Security style. Mine on my 05 Caravan retailed over $100. Thankfully the place I purchased it from took care of the cost. If you have another key that has been working try it. If it doesn't work I'm sure the Dealership will be able to help you. Look in your owners manual to see if there is a fuse that controls this.

I have a 98 dodge caravan and when i put the key


You may have to get a new key cut if the tumblers in the ignition lock are not being lined up to unlock the ignition. If the key's was bent in the ignition lock, the ignition lock may be bad and need to be replaced with a new ignition key. Try replacing the ignition key's first, but if you have a spare key. Try that first and if the spare key's don't turn the ignition lock, then you may have to replace the ignition lock. Good luck and keep me posted. oh and try moving the steering wheel left to right as you try to turn the ignition lock.
