Question about Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Just replaced battery, stereo will not turn on, but eject on stereo is running non-stop

I changed the battery on my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan today. After the change, the stereo would not turn on. The mechanic checked all the fuses and relays, said they were fine. Then, when I turned the motor off, the eject on the cassette tape (yes they still had those in 2005) started moving non-stop, eject eject eject eject eject - even with the motor turned completely off. This is going to run my brand new battery down tonight! Tomorrow is 1/1/2014 and all the mechanics will be closed? Any ideas to stop this zombie stereo?

Testimonial: "I disconnected the stereo (thank you youtube) and the ejecting stopped...but you know, I looked and did not see a ground wire on the stereo. I was working by flashlight, I will look in the daylight tomorrow."

It takes a few days for the PCM (powertrain control module) to reset itself. It is only normal for this to happen when you disconnect the battery and replace anold worn out part with a new part. Not to worry it just takes a little while for everything to correct itself. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 dodge caravan. the headlights have

On the van you have a high beam fuse and relay. On the low beam you also have a fuse and relay. Check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse controlling the low beam lights. If you do not find a blown fuse have some one to turn the key on and turn on the high beam lights> During this time locate the low beam headlight relay and place your finger on top of relay, have the other person to switch from high beam to low beam lights. You should feel a click in the relay when they make the switch from high to low beam. If not replace the relay and the problem should go away. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: I have a 1984 dodge D150, not charging, battery is

The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

Disc wont eject


sounds strange but what you need to do is disconnect the power to the stereo by either taking the stereo out and unplgging it or take the fuse out or dis-connecting the battery. (if its a code locked stereo make sure you have the code before you do this) wait 30 seconds then reconnect it, put code in if needed then press eject as the stereo would have been reset, a pain i know but it beats ramming a screwriver in the slot
