Question about 2004 Dodge Caravan

Radio CD not working & lights don't flash remote keylock

2004 Dodge Caravan
The remote keylock used to flash van's lights but stopped.
Then a few weeks later, the radio stopped turning on.
This may have occured shortly after I put a phone into the cigarette lighter for charging.
A week later, I put the device again into the cigarette lighter, and the radio started working again. But only for a day.
Then the radio went out permanently.
Fuses all appear good. I took out the IOD fuse for 10 seconds as well, and took out the BCM fuse as well. Nothing seems to correct the issue. Everything else seems to be functioning.

Is this possibly a short or grounding problem?

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    I removed the battery and it was out of the vehicle for over an hour. It didn't correct the problem. I haven't gone to the dealer yet, but wonder if any other expert would recommend resetting the codes? A guy at work thought maybe I have a grounding problem just hearing the story.

    So, I either take it to a car electical company to see if it's a grounding problem or go to a dealer? What's your recommendation?

Sometime the computer in car will shut down a circuit when it sees a problem even if it only occure once. You can try to disconnect the battery for at least 2 min so all sys power off (some have capacitors that mantaine a charge for short time). If a battery disconnect does not clear problem you have go to dealer and have them to clear codes and reset you modules and your preferences

Keyless remote stopped working, I replaced battery


The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.


2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
  1. Insert one of your working combination keys into the ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
  2. Insert your second working combination key into the ignition within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove it.
  3. Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to "On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the key and the remote--is programmed.
  4. Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to program. A total of eight can be programmed.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...


Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.
