Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport starts and DIES immediatly.....

Okay so The van will start and then will die immediately..  I have had SEVERAL codes come and go while trying to fix the van.  The Fist codes were P0601  Something ot do with the PCM P0106  map or baro circuit range performance problem P0107  map sensor voltage too low
So, I've replaced the MAP sensor.  Didn't fix the problem..   I jsut bought this van aobut a month ago so I guess I just figured the previous owners kept up with regular maintinence...  NOT  so I check the plugs and wires       (YUK)  replaced those.  The factory wires were still on this van..  That didnt' fix the problem..   So then I started thinking this might be a fuel delivery issue, so I replaced the fuel filter..  NOPE that didn't fix it either.  Okay so now I got a new code  P0121  Throttle position sensor So i replace it.  NOPE not fixed.  ergggggggggggggg Okay so I've taken the throttle body off and gave it a good cleaning and and put it back on.  STILL NOT FIXED  But i got a new code   P0320  Not quit sure what this one is.......... So still convinced this is a fuel delivery issue I go buy the $200  fuel pump and replace it..  STILL NOT FIXED.
Can someone???  Anyone?????  possibly help me??  It wont start so I can't take it to the mechanic.  Its pulled all the way forward in my drive way so I won't be able to pull it down there and MOST importantly I wanna be able to fix it myself..  I hate paying someone to $100.00 / hr to fix my car..
ANY SUGGESTIONS anyone???

P0320 Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction


Your crankshaft position sensor has failed.  Sometimes it is possible that it's a wiring issue, but 95% of the time it's the sensor itself.  I would check the wires that you put them back on correctly when you changed them and the plugs.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

You have a wiring problem (harness, connector, power, ground, pin tension, etc.) you have to find it.

SOURCE: My cadillac deville has the following engine codes

click on the below links for code details.
P0106

P0121

P0171

P0174


P0335


P0340

P0385

P0442

P0506

P0507

P0601.

all of the above codes seem to have a common cause, they all list a bad ecm (computer) as being a cause, and the last code P0601 points specifically to a bad computer. sorry for the bad news, hope this helps.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Wont start. drove the caravan to the store then home and it hasnt started since


It could be just about anything was it driven normal before it died or was it acting up . make sure that the gas is actually getting to the engine if it is i would maybe change the spark plugs. then the computer again . but may start to get costly by guessing you may want to bring it in for test..
