If the check engine light is yellow, it is usually just an emissions issue and nothing to be overly concerned about. If it is flashing, or red, get it checked as soon as possible.

Hey there!

To find the code, get a pencil and paper, sit in the drivers seat and gaze at the instrument panel. insert your key in the ignition. (do not turn) Look at the dask and watch the area where the "check Engine" light comes on.. turn the key on-off-on-off-on (semi quickly) do not start the engine.
leave on . the engine light will start flashing. it's like morse code. it will flash a set of numbers then another, then pause, then next number and next, pause (for instance if it is a code twelve, it would flash as follows.. * (short pause) ** (longer pause) if there are other codes, it wil flash them too. so if there were say two codes, say 34 and 35 , it would flash as follows, *** (short pause) ****, (longer pause) ***(short pause)***** ( longer pause) it takes a little to watch the codes and write at the same time. sometimes helps if you have one person watch the light and one write the codes. If you miss one, don't worry it usually repeatseach code three times. if you can't get it quick enough, turn the key off, then wait two - three seconds and try again. let me know wha the codes are and I'll try and help you. good luck.

1993 Dodge Caravan 2.5L 4cyl. won't resart after the engine is warmed up. Starter cranks engine slowly. When I go back to van after 2hrs (cool down time) it starts right up. Its exasperating. Been told...

if it cranks real slow when hot and ok when cold then the battery is ok
starter may be bad you need an ameter to verifie it though if it draws to many amps then its bad.but i think it a safe bet starter is bad

When in gear can does not move

Check the transmission fluid,with the van at normal temperature and after runnig it through drive and revers a few times then place it in park and check it with the engine running,if it's down then top it up with chrysler type fluid and get the leak fixed,if it's not down on fluid then get a transmission shop to look at it.

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.

My 1988 dodge caravan s check engine lite all of a sudden came on and i get a little sputtering when i turn the key and start it up then it takes and stops but after a few tries it works but the engine...

Take the van to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes it has stored. Most parts store will do the scan for free. The check engine light means that the computer has noted a fault in one of the van's systems. Getting the codes will help identify the problem. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Po700 and p1776

P0700 is EATX code present. It simply means that the engine computer has noticed that the transmission computer has a dtc in it. This causes the Pcm (engine computer) to turn the check engine light on. You will need to have the TCM (trans computer) checked for codes to know what to diagnose.

error code P1776 - Replace rear solenoid switch

Likely both related The P1776 probably kicked off the P0700 notification.

Hope that helps! Happy Motoring!

1997 dodge caravan p 1495 code

if I am not mistaken that is the code for the engine temp sensor, it kind of works as a choke, it tell the computer the ngine temp so it can lean out the fuel mix. I think the code says engine is taking too long to warm up. A faulty sensor will read -40 C all the time
