2002 Dodge Caravan- Most of the time the panel lights do not work. They do ocassionaly work when we have to do something around the battery but we cant figure out why. We dont know if its something we are hitting while under the hood or not. I also have no idea which fuse is for the panel lights. Help!

Ok, I'll try my best to get you through this...now, for clairification, we are talking about the dash lights, correct?
Most interior lighting draws power from the underdash fuse/relay box, it's on the left side by the driver's feet.
But, this relay/fuse panel is feed by the underhood relay/fuse box, which is right beside the battery. By simply moving things around your making the lights come on, this has me believing that it is a wiring issue. Do what's called a wiggle test, just start pulling on the wiring around the battery (not too hard) and have someone watch the dash lights, when you get a change your in the right area. Check the wiring connectors for green corrosion and loose wires, Let me know what you find, and we will go from there....
Good Luck..

I was driving my 2002 dodge caravan i turn the car off and it would not turn back on.i got no power. then i got a jump an it came on but the battery light came on.


Check your battery connections first. If thats good do a load check on your batt. When its dark turn your headlights on with car off. Are your lights really dim. If so you might need a new batt. Also make sure that your nuetral safety switch is working. Move the steering column shifter around when you crank the motor. Any change?

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan does not start


could be the starter but could also be a relay that is not working properly. the relays are under the hood. you would have to have someone under the hood and someone turning the key at the same time to see if the relay is working. if it works every time you turn the key then its probably the starter.

BATTERY LIGHT (idiot light)


Good Day
You are right the alternator is most likely done,( regulator in the alt) This is some thing that you should take care of right away, Right now the battery is doing all of the work and it will not keep the charge up. Hope that this helps you out please let me know how you make out.
