Question about 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

Small **** abs light came on for about 30 seconds and went off now speedometer doesn't work and rpms are staying about 3.5 and gas gauge doesn't work as well as sometimes it almost stalls then

It has only been doing this for about 3 days. Before this I had tried to put a new radio in that still doesn't work, after that my door locks and interior lights stopped working when the switch is off. I'm not sure if this has something to do with it or not. I feel like it a wiring harness or sensor but I only grew up in a junk yard I'm not a mechanic.

Sounds like you need to unhook the radio wires and see if you have any dead fuses.

    I will try that, thank you guys I really appreciate it. I know it's something simple. I'm thinking either ground wire or wiring harness has something to do with it. I'll will have the Bo try this when I get home from work. Thank You!

SOURCE: HELP! Problems on my 1997 Grand Caravan P1698, P0138, P0140

you need to go over your entire wiring harness, under the hood and inside the dash. Start with the ground wire on the battery and work your way inside. It sounds like there is a loose ground wire somewhere

It can be several things. Te simple one is that the connector behind the cluster is loose. The other is the circut board that makes up the cluster is going bad. Try disconnecting the cluster and re connecting. If this does not work, try replacing it with a sed one from a salvage yard or from ebay.

SOURCE: I just got a 1998 PLY Voyager 3.3 o.d. trans. 1.

Problem #1 The blinking lights in the rear wiper rear defrost area can be reset by holding 2 buttons of the 3 on the left hand side. The top and bottom buttons. Turn the key on and hold them for about 10 sec and they should start flashing differently. Just let it do this. After they start flashing different. It will take 5 to 10 mins. Then one or more will quit flashing all together. If they don't after about 20 min reset them again it can take about 5 trys sometimes before they all go out. Also to fix the dash going out try this. This is a common problem with the voyager,caravans and Town & Countrys. What the problem is is a cold soder in the interment cluster itself. The problem area is where the plug comes from the van into the cluster. You need to take the circuit board out of the cluster and reheat the soder on the back side of the circuit board were the plug plugs into. This will fix the cold soder permanitly I think its about 16 pins you have to reheat with the soder gun. If you don't feel comfrotable doing that you can just replace the interment cluster and it will be fine but if you buy a used one make sure it was tested. This also may fix the ABS light and the airbag light. Hope this helps I have done several of them.

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager.........Dashboard instruments

You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work


Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

THE ABS light on my Volvo S70 went on and turned off in a minute.


It should come on for a few seconds with the other lights, but should not stay on for a minute.  If you get an intermittent ABS light it could be a speed sensor or more likely the ABS module.  If you get an ABS light along with a flashing arrow light, traction control light, or  speedometer and odometer goes out, then it is just about guaranteed to be an ABS module issue.  There are online sites that will rebuild ABS units for around $150 or less.  They are pretty easy to remove and install yourself with the right socket.  Google "Victor Rocha".  His site has good information on the procedure and he is well trusted for his rebuilding jobs (I have no affiliation to him or the site).

Speedometer intermittent and ABS/Brake light stays on


it sounds like it is the speedometer cable that goes from the speedometer gauge to the transmission is wearing out.unless you have done one of these before then i would suggest having someone do it for you.
