    Are you measuring amperage or voltage? If your measuring amperage, how exactly are you doing it?

SOURCE: How do I change the Driver's side Front Headlight

  1. Unscrew the three screws that secure the headlight assembly to your Dodge Caravan. Put the screws in your pocket or another safe place, so you won't lose them before reinstalling the headlight assembly.
  2. Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the vehicle. Turn the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise to unlock the electrical connector. Remove the electrical connector from the bulb assembly by pulling it straight out.
  3. Replace the old bulb with a new halogen headlight bulb. Connect the electrical connector and turn the bulb retaining ring clockwise to lock the bulb into place.
  4. Reinstall the headlight assembly and secure the screws tightly before closing the hood. Turn on your Dodge Caravan, flip on the headlights and verify they're working properly.

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager instrument cluster problem

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
As I fore mentioned I had the exact same issue as you are describing, our is a 99. The most tricky part is the dash, take your time with it.
I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

1999 plymouth grand voyager voltage regulator


Not all bench tests on alternators are reliable. That battery has to be brought back to a full charge. It could be a simple connection to the alternator. Check those battery cables as well make sure the ground wire is secure.

Battery warning light is on after a new battery and alternator on a 2000 grand voyager


There should be a fuse or fuseable link between the battery and the alternator.
Check the voltage at the battery wire on the back of the alt - should be 12 volts or more.
The alternator is turned on by the ASD relay and the computer.
If the engine is running I will assume the relay is working.
If you have battery voltage on the big wire and the alternator is not charging, you could have a problem with the computer.

Van wont start


I had a similiar problem recently. The car would not start and no sign of life no lights etc. I jump started it acouple of times but then even this did not work. It would jump start but right after the cables are disconnected it would stop. We checked the battery it was good. Turned out it was the alternator. It was not working properley so the system was not charging itself or even when it starts was not generating enough energy to keep it going. Changed the alternator, never had the same problem again. You can have your battery and alternator checked at an autozone shop for free.
