Question about 1989 Dodge Caravan Cargo

1 Answer

Will not start just died.

On my 89 dodge Caravan it will not start. It turns over but that is it. I have checked the fuel and it is pumping fuel therefore eliminating the fuel pump, changed the ignition coil gave better spark. Still does not start. The check engine light flashes 3 times and then 5 times and then 5 times again. I need someone to help that might know the codes for this. Thank You

Engine? Those flashes should be 2 digit numbers . Cycle key, on, off, on, off, on & leave on & recount those flashes. Example: 3 flashes, pause, then 3 more is code 33. Or 2 flashes, pause, 4 flashes, is code 24. 5 flashes, pause 5 more, is code 55 which means end of message. Then get back.

    Code 12 is just telling you that the battery has been disconnected recently or went dead. What engine do you have? You have confirmed spark & have you tried spraying WD-40 in the intake of the throttle body (like quick start) just to see if that will make it kick over & fire up briefly?

IS THERE A FUSE FOR THE FUEL PUMP RELAY ON 1992 DODGE CARAVAN


Yes there is, the fuse is for the pump only.. Pull the relay and turn the key on. There should be to places with power( within first two seconds or as cranking). You have them, it's not the fuse. Fuses are usually 20 amp, yellow.

1998 dodge caravan keeps dying but starts right back up


I'd start by replacing the fuel filter, if it hasn't been replaced recently, that might be the cheapest fix, if that doesn't solve it, it sounds like a fuel pump, have the pressure coming out of it checked before dropping the fuel tank to get to it.

Hey guys, my caravan started this morning then shut off and won't start again. Heres what I did so far checked fuel pump fuse good, fuel pump relay good swapped with other. Removed neg battery cab


If you have voltage at the fuse and relay, and at the pump, but no fuel pressure, I would say the pump has died or the tank is empty.
Have you checked for voltage at the pump yet ?

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....


It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.
