Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Some days on , some off. Works sometimes when you whack it, most times not. Dies or comes alive some times when driving and you can hear the power door locks lock as the dash sends/receives the signal that the van is moving over 15 mph. Usually works more often when outside temp. is colder. Dash seems to lose power yet the odometer continues to record miles while not displaying. I believe its a corroded connection, bad wire or issue on a circuit board. Any help would be welcomed as it can't pass inspection and the van is clean for a '98. Thank you.
This condition has become very common with the 3rd generation 96-2000 Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyagers. The instrument cluster develops fractures in the solder connections at the connector on the instrument cluster circuit board. The instrument cluster circuit board needs to be removed and the connector resoldered. This condition can cause everything from loss of guages, random stalling and complete shutdown. Also there is occasionally a problem with the HVAC module connector that melts around pin #21 causing any number of problems including shorting the CCD data bus that can cause all sorts of symptoms by not allowing control modules to communicate with the PCM. A very common symptom of a problem with the Body Control Module is to have no intermittent wipers or other problems in the cabin of the vehicle.

The most common cause of the poblems u are having is the Body Contro Module (known as the BCM) is defective, it is all to common a complaint, I believe you must have the new module programmed so the dealer will have to get invovled.
