Don't know about 999 but the flashing light could be misfire, a clogged cat, cracked head. Take it and get the codes off of it. Last time I saw this on a dodge it was a cracked cylinder head#5 I believe.

If it's a '97, go down to autozone and have them check your check engine light. This will give you an OBD code that you can google to find the actual problem.

What symptoms are you having?

What is service engine light code 12 mean



READING CODES USING MIL (CHECK ENGINE) LAMP

Be advised that the MIL or CHECK ENGINE light can only perform a limited number of functions and it is a good idea to have the system checked with a scan tool to double check the circuit function.

  1. Within a period of 5 seconds, cycle the ignition key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON .
  2. Count the number of times the MIL (check engine lamp) on the instrument panel flashes on and off.

The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a short pause between the flashes representing the 1st and 2nd digits of the code. Longer pauses are used to separate individual 2-digit trouble codes.
An example of a flashed DTC is as follows:


Lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 6 more times. This denotes a DTC number 46. Lamp flashes 5 times, pauses, then flashes 5 more times. This indicates a DTC number 55. DTC 55 will always be the last code to be displayed.

Was driving my 97 dodge caravan, and it just quit on me, whats the problem?


If the check engine light is on do the following.

insert ignition key into the ignition.

turn the key as follows.

off-on, off-on, off-on. ( on is when the dash lights come on, off is one click back from on)

service codes will flash out in pairs of numbers on the check engine light. 5-5 is the end of the test.( the codes may display on the odometer if its digital) write down the codes and google the findings.

you may have just run out of gas ;-)

Service engine soon light on a 1996 caravan sport


The codes can be retrieved by turning your ignition switch on and off three time quickly and watch your service engine light. It will flash once pause then flash twice then it will begin to give any fault codes that have been stored. It will flash once or twice then pause then flash in concession again then pause and start another code if any. When you have retrieved all the codes available it will flash 5 times pause then flash 5 times which means it has finished. There are several sites on the net that will explain what each code stands for and which circuit needs your attention.

The check engine light on means there is a code stored in the ECM. You will have to have the OBD II system scanned and cleared. The other problem is probably just a blown fuse. If you need more help get back to me.

Flashing lights! dash and headlights


RESET PROCEDURE

With the ignition off, press the TRIP and RESET buttons at the same time you turn on the ignition. HOLD the buttons for 10 sec and the instrument cluster will go into a diagnostic sequence. I dont have the codes but you can find them online (999 means ok).

Doing this procedure will reset the dash cluster which will solve most of the problems.
