Weird electrical problem in 1996 Dodge Caravan

Our 1996 Caravan has developed a strange electrical problem. Recently, when the car was started, the yellow "ABS" light on the upper dash stayed illuminated, and the radio did not work. A few days later we had the problem again, and we were able to do a bit more testing. What does not work includes: ABS warning light Radio Ventilator fan Windshield wipers Maybe more -- we don't know Headlights all seem to be fine. The failure is intermittent -- shutting the car off and waiting a few minutes seems to clear whatever is causing the fault. I have a suspicion that all these things are related through a common connection, or relay, or something. The problem is, I don't have a wiring diagram of the vehicle to troubleshoot it. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem? thanks, Isaac i have a 1993 caravan, after my wife backed into the left rear corner, we now have no radio, interior lights, door locks or rear deack releasel everything else works fine. i am at a loss of what to look at next or where to go

Check your battery. My 98 caravan was running fine but my battery was almost shot. Changing the battery and replacing, or just taking out, the IOD fuse for 30 minutes, fixed several intermittent electrical problems I was having. BUT, it's only a temporary fix. My new battery lasted 7 months before I started having electrical problems again and I already need a new battery. I'm still trying to find out what the underlying problem is and why my batteries don't last. My alternator is fine. I've heard it could be the Body Control Module.

I need to know where to find the child anchor for a 1996 dodge caravan

There are no child anchors on a 96. This was around the time the latch system was under development. Just went through looking into this for my 1996 van. chico car seat fit well

The newer van seats will not fit either( I do have a 2007 seat for sale now ) as I tried to make one fit in my 1996 van with the latch system and it didnt fit. Wheels right spacing too wide for the anchor points.

I'm having strange electrical problems with my Caravan. 1st the tach went crazy and quit working then the speedometer went crazy and quit working now the passenger window quit working where do I start to...

I know with the generation II caravan the Body Control Module had some strange problems. On mine the horn will not work, and the wipers work sometimes and eerily on their own. It is a known problem and there is a TSB about it.

After that, it could be a bad ground.

Neutral safety switch adjustments

96 Plym. Gr. Voyager (same as Dodge) 4speed A/T can't locate neutral safety switch on drivers side front of trans. My book shows different location/picture (Haynes manual). Any ideas where to get picture/diagram for reference? Initial problem van starts normally but often only clicks when key is cycled through start cycle until it finally starts. Battery good (3 yrs and checked good), replaced ign. switch behind key tumbler assembly(NAPA Echlin part), relay at fuse block in engine area a checks OK with VOM meter, next item is neutral safety switch that also runs backup lights. I've opened area by removing air filter assembly for better view from top or under car but my switches are not in same location as Haynes book shows. Van has towing package and lockup torque convertor if that makes difference. Need source for diagram of trans exterior. Tha nks to all you helpful souls!
