SOURCE: 1998 dodge caravan eatx relay is clicking. Vehicle

It sounds like you are using an after market scanner. You will need to take it to a dealoror service garage that uses either a snap-on scanner or dealorship scanner, so the perimeters can be looked at to see what is on/off to determine what device is not getting a reference voltage. It sounds like a connector, but without a good scanner to look at the individual componets, you will only be guessing.

How do i find a battery drain


you can not check for a draw using the voltage setting on your multi-meter. You need to measure amperage. amperage is what is being used and causes the battery to go dead. Voltage is everywhere in the system and what you measured is voltage drop or the resistance of the circuit in question.

With your voltmeter set to amperage remove the positive cable end from the battery. place one lead on the positive cable end and the other lead on the positive battery post. Wait 30 minutes for everything to power down. you should see less than .050 amps. if you see more than start pulling fuses until you narrow down the circuit that is causing the draw.

make sure the key is off and out of the ignition, make sure all the doors are closed, and make sure there is nothing plugged into the 12 volt accessory outlets.

let me know what you find.

My starter still will not disengage on my 98 dodge caravan even when the key is turn in the off position. have to remove the battery cable in order to get it to stop turning over the motor


So, what did you find when you checked the starter relay? Either the relay has the contacts stuck closed or the wire between the relay and the starter is shorted to battery voltage. If it stops cranking when you pull the relay out, then the relay is at fault.
