Does anyone know what the code 999 means on a 97 caravan? It also said chec 0, chec 1, chec 2, chec 3. Thanks

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.

Air conditioning on '97 Dodge Caravan 3.0L not working. No power to compressor.

Wait until you get it full, then see what it does.Could just be freon running through evaporator, and air. Once full & run a while, it may stop, if not, your AC will probably quit cooling again, then you'll know.

I would check your spark plugs before I do much else. It could also be a coil pack or plug and wire, depending on which one you have.

1997 Dodge Caravan LE Starts for 3 secs and shuts off???

Hi, I have a 97 Dodge Caravan 3.0L, It did the same thing, would run for a little while then die on me going down the road. I had it checked out and they couldn't find out what was causing it to die. Finally a neighbor who is a mechanic checked it out and found that the speed censor on the transmission was going out and I had to replace the map censor. Two weeks later the timing belt broke. My advice is to have a mechanic check your timing belt and the two censors. My mechanic used a code machine hooked up to my dash. If your sort on cash, this might help.
